Hi Experts,

Is there any way to define what size an OpenFileDialogeBox is when it opens? As it is always too small and I have to resize it before I can use it.

Open file dialog is a system dialog. It means that your application has no control over it. It is controlled by user. If user wants to change its size in one application, it will gain new size in all applications, since this size is user's preference.

Purpose of common dialogs is providing standard UI parts to user. Imagine how uncomfortable for users it would be to search for file to open if every application would use its own OpenFileDialog.

However you can build your own dialog.
