NO GUYS! We use VB 6, but you see, their is a beginner class called VB and the follow up VB 2! I just need a "new" dialog box because the program that we are working with uses a Save As common dialog box. It just bothers me that when you click File-> New that a Save as box comes up. Cheesiness. It basically just opens a random access file. I will bring up some code tomorrow when I go to school!
In VB -> Press ctrl-t, check the box 'Microsoft Common Dialog Control'
Add a dialog component to your form, Give it a title like 'Open' and then call the dialog's showopen (commondialog1.showopen) function.
If you use the actual API calls as opposed to using a wrapper such as the Common Dialog control, I think you can change the title of the window and also the "OK" button's text... actually, I am not sure.
the common dialog box in VB is extreemly versatile. it has mnay flags that can be set that will allow for doing what you want without hitting the API or anything. Do a google for VB common dialog flags. Its out there.
