I want to derive a class from CFileDialog so I can override the function that handles the "New folder" button.  What function is that, or what is the message that the button sends?  I cannot figure out exactly what to override.  (The virtual functions listed as overrideable do not include this.)

Handling the button would not be enough, as you can also create a new folder by right-clicking in the list control in the file open dialog.

I don't believe it is possible to trap this action anyway.

However, you can trap other events (like opening a folder or selecting a file) and can turn off controls all by writing an explorer-style hook procedure.
