Embedded CFileDialog

Hi.
I'd like to do something like Visual Basic Open Project dialog, which is a property sheet that has the common file dialog in one of the pages.
The problem is that CFileDialog (which hooks the GetOpenFileName API) only opens as a modal dialog, and embedding it as a child is difficult...
Any ideas, pointers, something, if possible, please show a simple example

   Thanks.

I can send you a code that implements FileOpen dialog that looks EXACTLY like VB stuff (with recent file list with icons of opened documents). Think that it will be an answer. You only need to wait to Monday. Ok?

Well, I just written it. This óðîäñêèé CFileDialog is very nasty thing. If you adjust points to 250 I can send you the stuff you request, and in addition File|New property page with icons, DevStudio like Windows dialog and VB style File|Save All dialog (I am too lazy to remove extra stuff from my .h and .cpp files).
You only need to "comment" your e-mail here.
                                At your service. Elf.

Ok, 180 is high enough for me. I write this dialog for myself, not for you. I send you a lot of source code tested with VC 6.0 "as is". Requested CFileDialog is working correctly, other stuff may "assert" sometimes. Feel free to modify, no fees, no responsibility and no references to me.
Just send .zip at ymw1@np.edu.sg
