SubClassing CFileDialog

In my application, I need to customize CFileDialog based on FILEOPENORD dialog template, which is an old style dialog ( Windows NT 3.51 ). I also need to modify the dialog template to add a few controls to it. The code is working fine in a test application. But it's failing when I use this CMyFileDialog class in an extended DLL and invoking it from main application. There are no failure messages of Windows or MFC ( e.g. ASSERTions ). When I call DoModal(), no dialog is getting displayed.
Please let me know if you have any idea about this problem.
Thanks,
Rajesh

You'll have to roll up your sleeves and do some debugging: it's  as simple as that. Trace into DoModal() and figure out why it's failing.

Odds are that it's failing because MFC can't find the dialog resource template that you've defined.  Depending on how you're calling your DLL, you might ened to use an AFX_MANAGE_STATE() macro to make sure MFC knows what the module handle is supposed to be so it can properly load the template.
