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!

(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.
