yes, but, if you radically change it may be easier to create your own.

You can define your own resource template or add hooks (or subclass the controls).  If you want more specific help please tell me what you're trying to do.

Some samples can be found under "Common Dialogs" at

I'd like to replace the default listbox with a listbox (in reportView) which has two columns:the fileName and a description of the file.
