Creating Custom Dialog boxes with CommonDialog

DMc
Hi,

I have been searching for tutorials and tips on how to create my own
Dialog box using the CommonDialog abstract class, and I have not been
able to find anything useful.
Can anyone have any example they would be willing to share or suggest a
decent tutorial?

Thanks

David

Hi David,

There seems to be some guidance here:

CommonDialog Class
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...mondialog.aspx

Note that there is a new version in the 3.0 framework that is located in a
different namespace. Actually, I'm not really sure whether it's a new
version or just a *different*, WPF version, but it turned up in the search
results on MSDN:

CommonDialog Class
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...mondialog.aspx

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

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