Saveas Case Sensitive?

Does Saveas really need to be case sensitive.


I just spent a lot of time trying to figure out why my addin wasn't working and all that was wrong is I had a capital P on png.


Dim sPath As String = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(sIDWName) & "\PartsLists"


 Dim sFileName As String = System.IO.Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(sIDWName) & ".Png"


 Dim sFileName As String = System.IO.Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(sIDWName) & ".png"


Dim sPNGName As String = sPath & "\" & sFileName
        oCamera.SaveAsBitmap(sPNGName, 1124, 899)

This is odd behavior and I am able to reproduce it and have filed a change request (ID 1507740).  Another odd thing is that I only see it with png files. With the following test, I get all of the files created except for Testing2.PnG.


Public Sub SaveAsTest()
    Dim c As Camera
    Set c = ThisApplication.ActiveView.Camera
    Call c.SaveAsBitmap("C:\Temp\Testing1.png", 0, 0)
    Call c.SaveAsBitmap("C:\Temp\Testing2.PnG", 0, 0)
    Call c.SaveAsBitmap("C:\Temp\Testing1.bmp", 0, 0)
    Call c.SaveAsBitmap("C:\Temp\Testing2.BmP", 0, 0)
    Call c.SaveAsBitmap("C:\Temp\Testing1.jpg", 0, 0)
    Call c.SaveAsBitmap("C:\Temp\Testing2.jPg", 0, 0)
End Sub
