Hi, experts,

I want to know the control id of the save button in the CFileDialog, so that I can disable the "save" button in some occasions.

Any expert knows the id or how to get the id?

Also does any expert know how to get a message or notification when the user "edit" the filename, not that when he clicks a file name. in the latter circumstance, the cfiledialog has a virtual handler. but in the former one, no such handler. i am currently use timer to check if the user has "edited" the filename. but it is obviously a not good method.

thank you.

The ID of save button is 1. The id of edit is 480. To find out when the user edits the filename subclass the window and override on change. To find others Id's use Spy++.

Thank you Dear Mr. BogdyPtr
The first question has been solved. Very Good.
Regarding to the second one, to be honest, I
don't have any knowledge of subclass.
If your time permitted, I wish I could have your further help.
But anyway, you have helped me solved the first one. Therefore, I would like to accept your answer.
Thank you.

Look at CWnd::SubclassWindow function. Create a CEdit derived class object and call the CEdit derived class SubclassWindow function with the HWND of the edit control. This way all the messages that the edit control recives will route throught the CEdit class.
