    CommonDialog control question

    Hi all,

    I'm a long time lurker, new poster.

    I was just reading through the latest edition of WAW, about the common dialog control for selecting filenames. In all my years, I have never thought to do it differently than the first time I did it (back in Access 2), which was using a similar method to the callback function.

    Anywho, after an afternoon re-working a bunch of applications to include this fabulous control, I hit one where I need to return a folder name, not a file name.

    If I recall correctly, this is a different control altogether. I had a look through my list of activeX controls, but couldn't find this one.

    Can anyone inform me as to where this control is hiding (if it is available) and maybe a few pointers on how to use it?

    Many fanx in advance.

    Re: CommonDialog control question

    You may want to check out the API section of the <A target="_blank" HREF=>Access Web</A>. The code there is different than using the CommonDialog ActiveX control, but it's not very difficult. You'll find samples of Open/Save As... Dialogs and the Folder Browse Dialog.
