Adding CommonDialog.FileOpen to user control property

Hi There,

I have been able to add a property to my user control whereby the developer can set a colour (using OLE_COLOR).

I can also add a property based on my own constants using a public enumeration.

Now what I want to do is to add a .FilePath property in the standard proprty list. When selected, an ellipsis appears that, when clicked, will open a common dialog .ShowOpen screen where the user can then select a file relevant to the control (eg. an icon)

Any suggestions?

have a look at http://www.vb-world.net/files/opensave/index.html. The clsOpenSave.cls class implements an InitDir property to do this.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

what I was after was an interface similar to the one given in a standard picturebox control with the ... button to select a file to insert into the picturebox.  Any ideas?

You won't be able to do it in the properties windows. But you can build your own property page and have the interface you want from there it is simple another form!
