API questions

Three quick questions:

1) Where would be the most appropriate forum to post Goblin API questions? I'm only asking here since I'm using FM8.

2) I've been working on a new map-export script for my friend (who doesn't seem to have any issues at all with the large-format output files).

Upon adding the AddFileSave() method on a new dialog, I can retrieve the file name and path from the FileName property, but is there a property to retrieve the selected value (if any) of the FileMask list? .FileMask simply shows the entire pipe-delimited list.

I'm just trying to set the file name and extension with one step, instead of having a set of radio buttons to select the file type, as well.

3) On executing the ShowModal method, the OK and Cancel buttons are abutting and squished into the lower right-hand corner of the dialog box and cause scroll bars to appear. Is there a mechanism to access/control the position properties of those system-generated buttons?
