I am probably missing something really stupid here, but when I try to call the contructor for CFileDialog, I get no default constructor available.  I am using CFileDialog as the constructor.  I don't get the error if I use CFontDialog or any of the other common dialog boxes.  What am I doing wrong?  Thanks.

CFileDialog does not have a default constructor, you must specify one parameter atleast ( check the documentation ).

I think the problem is with the parameters you had passed to the constructor.
If you can post the line for which you are facing problem it is better.

CFileDialog(TRUE, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL) m_filedlg;

I am a newbie and have never had to mess with classes with no
default constructor, so that may be totally wrong.  With the parameters
I get:

 error C2629: unexpected 'class CFileDialog ('
error C2238: unexpected token(s) preceding ';'

as an error.

Thanks.

Try
CFileDialog instanceName( TRUE );
Remember: your object name should be specified, you are not tring to declare the class again.
