Common Dialog

Hi All,

I am using the common dialog color pallete and open forms in VB6.0.

I have two questions:

1. How can the position of these forms on the screen be specified when
they are loaded. By default they always seem to be located with their
upper left corner coinciding with the upper left corner of the form
that they are loaded from. I would prefer them to have an initial
position in the centre of the screen.

2. The application in which these two forms are used is multi-language
(english/espanol) ..... are there any language options for the common
dialog forms ?. I need to have the text on the open form in espanol
.... i.e. Abrir not Open.

Thanks,

Steve

Not sure if the common control should automatically present it's buttons
etc. in the appropriate language based on the user's settings, but this code
will show you how to use the API colour picker instead of the common control
version thus enabling you to customize its position, as well as change
button and caption text if desired ...

I have a form that has a timer running on it (System.Timers.Timer). On this form, I have a button that opens a Common Dialog box. As soon as this button is pressed, the timer stops running. When I return and close the common dialog, the timer will not start up again, no matter what I do. If I stop the timer before the box is displayed, and then try to start it afterwards (timer.start), it still doesn't work. I don't need to respond to...

A curious problem, one that I think I've seen before. I have a .250 MLOC vb6 app that uses the common dialog control. If I select File/Open in my app to display the file open dialog and then alt-tab to another running app, when I try to alt-tab back to my app, the common dialog box and my apps main window is gone (can't see it in the task bar, or in the alt-tab window). If I then maximize another window and minimize it again, my app and...

I need to include a wizard in my application that will, as one of the steps, ask the user to select a file to open and (later) a file to save it as. The naff way to do this would be to have a button on the form that pops-up the common dialog. The cool way to do this would be to have the common dialog embedded in the wizard. I know it's possible, as I've seen other apps do this kind of thing, but I have no ideas how it can be achieved and...
