Hello!

I would like to know how to use the APIs to call commondialog's ShowSave, ShowOpen, ShowColor methods and getting those values from the result.

Thank you!

Check these links:

(Windows API calls for the ShowOpen, ShowSave, ShowPrinter, ShowColor and ShowFont)

(You have got demos for both CDlg Control and API)

Hope this helps,
Cheers.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
