In this video, we'll learn how to save and open a file using native dialogs in Electron. First, we'll use dialog.showSaveDialog to display a native save dialog and use dialog.showErrorBox to display an error message if the save failed. Then, we'll open the file we saved using dialog.showOpenDialog. Finally, we'll look at how these dialogs look on Windows vs Mac.
