PropertyBag

I have build my own control in vb5. That control needs a databasefile that the user can choose. I 've build some extra properties and indeed, the user can see them when he or she is designing the program with my control. The problem is that the user must give the filename by the hand. How can I put a commandbutton on the right side of the textbox so the user will get a browser to pick up his or her file. I would also like to link  some other events to these buttons, not only the browsefunction.

Add the button.....   add a commondialog control to your form/usercontrol.   When the button is clicked, you can set the properties of the commondialog like this

with commondialog1
   .title = "Pick File"
   .filter = "MDBs (*.mdb)|*.mdb"
   
   'look for help on the commondialogcontrol
   .cancelerror = true
   on local error resume next
   .showopen
   if err = 0 then
      text1.text = .filename
   end if
end with

As I just said, I don't want to have a propertypage! The example that you just gaved works with propertypage, I knew that before, but I don't want propertypages.

And I read, I know you didn't want a property page.  This would work either way, but I am not going to help anymore if you are going to have an attitude.
