Hi,
I am using Open Dialog control of Delphi 6. I have to Processed the files selected from the dialogbox. But have to check the Checkbox is checked or not. Acording to the state of the checkbox("Open as Read only") I have to further process the files.
I have attached the image for your reference.
I have tried
IsDlgButtonChecked(odialog.Handle,chx1);
CheckDlgButton functions but not able to do it.
I am getting Handle always 0.
Please I need help.

The option flags get updated when the TOpenDialog execute is finished, so just check for ofReadOnly.

Eg:

  if OpenDialog.Execute then
  begin
     if (ofReadOnly in OpenDialog.Options) then
     begin
        ShowMessage('Open as read-only is checked');
     end;
  end;

Russell
