Open File Name mask

Hi Experts. I have a Dir with filesnames like 123.fgm ; 124.fgm; 125;fgm and a Mask file containing the names of the xxx.fgm files. I know how to extract the names out of the Mask file. But now I want these extracted names to be visible in the OpenFileName dialog so a user can select the wanted file.
How do I make these filenames visible using the GetOpenFileName(ofn) dialog ?
Thanks again

Are you thnking about

    BYTE            Filter  [ 100] = "FGM files (*.fgm)\0*.fgm\0\0";    
    char            acBuf   [ MAX_PATH];
    OPENFILENAME    ofName;

    ZeroMemory  (   &ofName,    sizeof( OPENFILENAME));
    ZeroMemory  (   acBuf,  MAX_PATH);
   
    ofName.hwndOwner        =   NULL;
    ofName.lStructSize      =   sizeof( OPENFILENAME);
    ofName.lpstrFile        =   acBuf;
    ofName.nMaxFile         =   MAX_PATH;
    ofName.lpstrInitialDir  =   NULL;
    ofName.Flags            =   OFN_HIDEREADONLY | OFN_EXPLORER | OFN_FILEMUSTEXIST | OFN_LONGNAMES;
    ofName.lpstrDefExt      =   "fgm";
    ofName.lpstrFilter      =   ( char *) Filter;
    ofName.nFilterIndex     =   1;
    ofName.lpstrTitle       =   "Choose FGM file";

Hi jkr,

thanks for your fast reply!
Yes this code generates a standard OpenFileDialog with the 123.fgm; 124.fgm ..files visible.
Now the xxx.fgm filenames must be made visible in this dialogbox with there real names.
I don't know how to go from here:
Do I have to use a OFN_ENABLEHOOK procedure to add this hook to made the real names visible in the dialogbox and how do I do this. or is there a easier way to change the xxx.fgm names to their names which are hidden in the mask file.

Best regards

Hmm, it seems that I now understand what you want to do, and that is IMO not possible with the standard "File Open" dialog, youd rather have to write a replacement for that, which is not too hard. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa365200.aspx ("Listing the Files in a Directory") will give you the basics on how to get the file listing and http://www.codeproject.com/listctrl/ ("List Controls") should cover the rest.

Hi jkr
Actaully I hoped to do the trick with a hook procedure in the GetOpenFileName(ofn) and could see an example of this hook procedure OFN_ENABLEHOOK.
Can't find anything leading to a solution within my capacities in these url's.

thanks agian and best regards
