Open file dialog box

Hello,
I'm just a beginner in MFC and have this problem:
I'm trying to open an open file dialog box with multiple file selection, but for some reason the File Title, File Name fields of the m_ofn structure of the CFileDialog class contains the path and not the file names.
Why?

(I'm working on NT4 using microsoft visual c++ 6)

thanx

Here is code that will take a CFileDialog object and read in multiple file selections into a CArray<CString,CString&>.

The array fileNameList will contain the filenames and extensions and the array pathList contains all of the full paths.

In the OPENFILENAME structure the lpstrFileName and lpstrFileTitle fields are only for single select Dialogs.

CArray<CString,CString&> fileNameList;
CArray<CString,CString&> pathList;

CArray<CString,CString&> fileList;
CFileDialog fDlg(TRUE); //open dialog

CString ext;

int lcv;

if(fileDlg.DoModal()==IDOK){

  int place=0;
  int size=0;
  int len;

  LPTSTR string=fDlg.m_ofn.lpstrFile;

  while(string[place]!='\0'){
               
    fileList.SetSize(size+1);

    while(string[place]!='\0'){

      fileList[size]+=string[place];
      ++place;

    }
    ++place;
    ++size;
  }

  len=fileList.GetSize();

  if(len>1){
    for(lcv=1;lcv<len;++lcv){

      ext=fileList[lcv].Right(3);
      ext.MakeUpper();

      if(ext!="EST" && ext!="MAS"){
        fileList.RemoveAt(lcv);
     --lcv;
     --len;
      }
    }

    len=fileList.GetSize();

    if(len<=1) return;

    if(fileList[0][fileList[0].GetLength()-1]!='\\'){
      fileList[0]+='\\';
    }

    for(lcv=1;lcv<len;++lcv){
      fileNameList.Add(fileList[lcv]);
      pathList.Add(fileList[0]+fileList[lcv]);
    }
  }

  else{
    ext=fileDlg.GetFileExt();

    ext.MakeUpper();

    if(ext=="MAS" || ext=="EST"){
      fileNameList.Add(fileDlg.GetFileName());
      pathList.Add(fileDlg.GetPathName());
    }
  }
}

     dlgFile.m_ofn.hwndOwner = AfxGetMainWnd()->GetSafeHwnd(); //in case of MDI/SDI application only

     if ( dlgFile.DoModal() != IDOK )

Sorry, some of that stuff

if(ext!="MAS" && ext!="EST")

didn't belong. I used that for my code, but I didn't mean to copy it in. The general idea is still right though. Simply change the "MAS" or "EST" to be whatever you filtered the dialog for.

gar,

you may reject tvanceplus's answer and post your code so we can tell you what's wrong with your code.

Thanx, tvanceplus
Your code works perfectly.
After looking in your code I realized how the file names are stored in the buffer (that's the mistake in my code).
