C# New File Dialog

I want to create a new file dialog box in C#, I'v tried this but it doesn't work:

               OpenFileDialog MyOpen=new OpenFileDialog();
               MyOpen.CheckPathExists=false;
               MyOpen.CheckFileExists=false;
              MyOpen.ShowDialog();

Please include code sample.

It works fine for me:

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            OpenFileDialog MyOpen = new OpenFileDialog();
            MyOpen.CheckPathExists = false;
            MyOpen.CheckFileExists = false;
            if (MyOpen.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
            {
                String fileName = MyOpen.FileName;
                MessageBox.Show(fileName, "You selected:", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information);
            }
            else
                MessageBox.Show("No Selection", "Dialog Cancelled", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information);
        }

Could you define "but it doesn't work" in a little more detail?

I want it to behave like the New File dialog in VS 2005 which presents you a set of file types/templates to choose from.

I think that is a control they designed themselves. Its not standard. The control is easy to design though...

You could Use a ListView control which allows you to assign Icons to the Items in it.

OK, so if the dialog is not standard then what's the best control to make it with?  Idle Mind you mentioned list view, but is the control to the left just s tree view, and what is the control on the bottom?

I'm not seeing any "New XXX" dialogs that have TreeViews in them (I'm using C# 2005 Express).   The closest is a ListView with the View() property set to "Large Icon".  The MS dialog has different "sections" in their window but I have no idea how to do that with the standard controls.

Can you find an Image on Google Images that you can post a link to?

I'll look, but even if it matched the add new item dialog that would be cool, and that should be the same in express as it is in VS 2005
