I have the need to pull up a commondialog using the "show" method BUT I want the dialogue to open in "Details" format with the latest file listed at the top (that is, the most recently modified/created".

Any ideas?

Thankyou for that, rockiroads!

It pointed me in the right direction.

I succeeded in replacing the standard "CommonDlg" with a replacement (full code and everything)
The only thing it does NOT appear to have is a hook into the class to change the date order in the listing from
"Earliest at the top,Latest at the Bottom" to the reverse (with the files which have been changed recently at the
top of the listing in the Dialog Box and the oldest files at the bottom.

"Beggers can't be choosers.....I may discover how to do it someday.

Anyway, many thanks for your help....I am awarding you the 125 points
