What exactly do you want to show the progress of? Opening a file only
takes a few milliseconds, normally. Processing the file might take much
longer, depending on what you are doing with it. If you want to show a
progess bar for that, I'd wait until the "save dialog" is closed and
then open another (my own) form that has a progress bar on it.

Hi,

IIRC the common dialogs are sealed so you cannot extend it.

What you can do is prompting the dialog to create the file then close it and
open a new dialog where you have your progress bar ( a la win explorer)
