Inheriting from the Common Dialog Class

I want to create my own common dialog to use in an application . How do I
show a custom dialog (form) in a class based on the common dialog class?

Hi CaribSoft,

Thank you for posting in the community!

Can you tell me what exactlly you want to do?

If you only want to show a customized modal dialog, I think the simplest
way is using Form.ShowDialog () to show a customized form.

Does this way meet your need? If it does not meet your need, please show me
the concern, thanks.

Not really, what I really want to do is to show my own form using the common
dialog class as the base class. For example I want to display an options
dialog having the same properties as the common dialog class, where do I put
the code to show my form using the common dialog class as my base class. Is
there some hook or a method to override etc. How is it done in the Save
dialog/Open file dialog and color dialog, they share a common base class but
have different dialogs which is what I want to achieve.

Hi, basic question here - I'm struggling with the transfer from asp to asp.net a bit, especially in seeing the 'bigger picture' of how things are best structured. I have a website made up primarily of aspx pages. I have separated out the common <head> as an .ascx file and intend to do the same for other common regions of html. In the aspx.vb I have code that is common to all pages. For example a sub which is passed a parameter to tell...

Hi all, I wanted to put some common security functions into a class that inherits from the Page class and then use the new class as the basis for all my pages. Unfortunately, if I try and inherit from my new SecurePage class and not the old Page class, the designer breaks and will only allow me into html mode. Bugger. The error message given is:

I have tried for two days to solve this problem with no luck. I have a singleton class which has some events declared. When I inherit from this class the events don't seem to come along with it. The event in the singleton class always evaluates to null even when I cleary subscribe to it. Does anyone have some sample code of how to do this, or is this not possible.

In the asp.net pages below, Common.vb has an overridable Page_Load sub. In the consuming page, Two.aspx, the Page_Load sub is inherited, but for some reason it (Overrides Sub Page_Load) executes twice. In another "regular" asp.net page that inherits only from its own codebehind page, the page load only executes once as you'd expect. Any ideas why the page_load fires twice in the former example? Thanks,

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
