Hi all

I was wondering if there is a way to use the dialog box which is used in win2k to add users to groups inside a vb program ? I would assume it is similar to a common dialog but can not find any mention of it on the web anywhere, any help greatly appreciated

Thanks

The dialog box you're talking about belongs to  Microsoft Management Console (MMC).  I can't find anything about it being a common dialog box.  Nor can I find anything about using MMC snap-ins from within VB.  I did find out that there is a software development kit from Microsoft that allows the building of MMC snap-ins from Visual Basic.  Here's a link to that information: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/mmc/mmc/vb_mmc_snap_in_designer_for_visual_basic.asp  I don't know of any way to access the subject dialog box from a VB program.  However, you could always use the Shell command to launch MMC and, probably, load the correct snap-in.  Sorry, that's all I can offer on the subject.  Hope it helps.

Yep, if you wanted a way to add users to groups easily, you could always shell the "net localgroup "Groupname" "Username" /add" command.

I wanted to use the dialog box to search for users and select them for editing in vb, the example of adding to a group was just so that it wasnt confusing for which dialog box i meant.

Thanks for the link, im going to check it out now
