Multiple types in a SaveFileDialog filter

In my SaveFileDialog I have multiple types in the filter, however when viewing the dialog if I choose a filter to view files of that type in the directory I am only able to see files for the first and last filters.

bool save;
SaveFileDialog dlg = new SaveFileDialog();
dlg.FileName = "*";
dlg.DefaultExt = "bmp";
dlg.ValidateNames = true;

dlg.Filter = "Bitmap Image (.bmp)|*.bmp|Gif Image (.gif)|*.gif |JPEG Image (.jpeg)|*.jpeg |Png Image (.png)|*.png |Tiff Image (.tiff)|*.tiff |Wmf Image (.wmf)|*.wmf";
save = (bool)dlg.ShowDialog();

if (save)
{
SaveImage(dlg.FileName);
}


I can see files of type .bmp and .wmf
If I change the order of the filters I can always only see the first and last.

Remove the spaces after the file type:

dlg.Filter = "Bitmap Image (.bmp)|*.bmp|Gif Image (.gif)|*.gif|JPEG Image (.jpeg)|*.jpeg|Png Image (.png)|*.png|Tiff Image (.tiff)|*.tiff|Wmf Image (.wmf)|*.wmf";
