CFileDialog default to "Details" rather than "List"

I have an application I've built inwhich the users always need to see the size of a file before selecting it from the file open dialog.  Right now they are always clicking the "Details" button on the common file open dialog before selecting a file.  It seems to me that there should be a simple way of programmatically changing which view the file open dialog starts with.  "Simple" in this case means without having to subclass CFileDialog.

CFileDialog states that if you want to initialize the various file dialog-box options you have to set members of the m_ofn structure.

Check out the OPENFILENAME structure. Looks like if you may have to do a custom template.

I think that you can`t do it because that is stile on ListCtrl in FileOpenDialog and you can change style from you function.
You need extendet CFileDialog, writing CFileDialogExt that can change style of ListCtrl.
