MFC not support this directly.
if you need not handle the EN_CHANGE message but need to know
the file select change,
you may Override virtual void OnFileNameChange( );
in CFileDialog's sun class

an other way:
program a sun class of CWnd and then SubClass the EditBox Window

To customize the standard file dialog(open / save), use the SDK functions like
BOOL GetOpenFileName(
  LPOPENFILENAME lpofn   // address of structure with initialization  data
);   or
BOOL GetSaveFileName(
  LPOPENFILENAME lpofn   // address of structure with initialization data
);

In the OPENFILENAME structure u can specify ur own procedure(hook) for the file dialog.
And u will get all messages and notifications in the hook procedure.

Refer to online help for OPENFILENAME structure.
