    Common Dialog (VB6)

    Is it possible to filter the common dialog to show thumbnail view and what, if it exists, is the filter command.

    Dave,

    If you use the code for displaying the Open dialog that you use in Access, and if the user has Windows XP, the dialog will switch to thumbnail view automatically if the folder contains images.

    Thanks Hans
    Most of our users don't have XP Operating System so I think I may have to look at another aproach.

    There are several free common dialog replacements with a picture preview; I don't know about thumbnail view. See for example:
    Extended FileDialogs DLL/VB6 or Zip file: VB6 Common Dialog with Picture Preview.zip.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by D Willett on 09-Dec-03 11:50. Solution Found)</P>Hans
    I'm trying an example of multi-selecting from a common dialog.
    I've checked the imported code for control names which are correct.
    On running the example, I get an error: "Variable not defined"

    .Flags = CD_FLAGS

    I have no MISSING references as far as I can see, any idea's ?
    ************************************************** *******************
    Solution found, I had not read the example correctly.
    I Imported all the example code to a command button instead of declaring the variables first.
