OpenFileDialog and Thumbnails...

I've seen this question posted a couple of times, but haven't seen an
answer.

Anyone have an idea how to make an openFileDialog appear in thumbnail view
when it opens?

Obviously there is no publicly exposed way of doing this... Well

The OpenFileDialog derives from FileDialog. FileDialog has a protected
property called Options. I'm not sure if there is anything promising there.
Seems like its just the internal way of changing CheckPathExists ,
CheckFileExists , etc...

You might try to send WIN32 messages to the window to change the view. I
can't find much on that either.

Note. Thumbnail view is only supported on 2k and xp.
