I'm calling TColorDialog from 3 different places.  It would be helpful if the caption of the dialog indicated that.

How can I set the caption  of a TColorDialog?  Example code would be much appreciated.

Put this in the Color Dialogs OnShow event:
SetWindowText((Sender as TColorDialog).Handle,'test');

Open in new window

Ooooo!  So Simple - one of those "Why didn't I think of that? things - but I didn't and you knew Thanks a lot!

The bigger question is why couldn't I find the answer to that anywhere in EE or anywhere!

Well I didn't know either haha, I started trying to modify the component directly and noticed that windows itself sets the caption. Realized that there was an OnShow. As for EE I don't think anyone has needed to change it.

I've wanted to before, but it's never before been a big issue - this time it sort of was becasue I myself found that I would loose track of which item I'd clicked to open the dialog (short attention span, I guess)

Thanks again!
