When I use the method ShowOpen for a common dialog control, the control appears at the top corner of the screen. How can I position the control so that it appears in the center of the screen or application window.

Thanks,

Alok.

From the VB help files:

"CommonDialog Control
...
Note   There is no way to specify where a dialog box is displayed."

Either try dtomyn's suggestion, or you'll simply have to write your own...probably not worth it.

Another B for me... could you please tell me what more information you would have liked to have received?  I haven't been around E-E much these days so maybe am missing something that people are requiring.
Thanks

My understanding is that the EE engine changed so that the default grade is now a "B" unless otherwise specified by the grader.
