Adjusting minimum size of Open File Dialog

I have extended the open file dialog as described in the MSDN article
"Extend the Common Dialog Boxes Using Windows Forms 1.x". I now need to
change the minimum height of the dialog. How do I do it?

I tried intercepting the WM_SIZING message, but it never gets this
message. I tried enforcing height restrictions in response to the
WM_SIZE message, but that message is sent after the sizing has
occurred.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mike

Try handling WM_GETMINMAXINF O.

Thanks for the reply. That would make sense, but I tried it and I do
not seem to be getting that message either.

I had to add the WS_THICKFRAME style to my dialog. Now I am getting the
WM_GETMINMAXINF O message.

Thanks!

Hello! I'm trying to make a very simple wizard. I have 3 different property pages and the property sheet is set to be a wizard. The problem is the size of the wizard dialog which is much too big. I thought I would be the size of the biggest property page plus some space for the next and previous buttons if needed. Are you aware of any minimum size for a wizard?

Hi, I'm writing an application in which a client (C#/WinForms) and server (C#/service) interact with one another.

A client may disconnect the TCP connection if it is idle for more than 60 seconds... yet a conceptual "session" may last for days at a time. It's necessary that the...

I also have an open file dialog for loading images into the picturebox.

How can I get...

Is there a way in CSS to adjust the baseline position of text marked up with either <sup></supor <sub></sub>, relative to the surrounding text? Reason for asking is that the default rendering in most browsers always increases the spacing between the line of text containing these elements and those above/below that lack it. I can easily reduce the size of the subscript or superscript

Hi all, I need to call windows' "open with" dialog from my C# windows form application. After the user selects application, control must return to me (I have to launch directly the process).
