Dear Gurus
I've written a simple VB6 applet  that is a Notepad replacement.  What I want is that when a user double clicks a .txt document, my app is activated and automatically opens the double clicked document.
I've worked out how to manually re-assign the default .txt extension from Notepad to my app.
However, what routine do I insert in my app that knows the filepath of the double clicked document?
Thanks in advance.
