What application? In Excel you can use Application.Dialogs(xlDialogFormulaReplace), but I don't know about other apps.
Again in Excel, the argument list for xlDialogFormulaReplace is find_text, replace_text, look_at, look_by, active_cell, match_case, match_byte. HTH --Sam

i am having a win application that i have created myself on VB.net. This application includes a treeview with lots of data, the problem is, i would like the user to call a standard Find dialog box (Ctrl+F) to jump to a specific line in the treeview for ease in searching and selection. My question is, is it possible to call such a dialog box ? i know it is , but HOW ??

thanks for your reply anyway. :)

Sorry, too many VB's. I think what you want is at http://windowsforms.net/Default.aspx...dex=4&tabid=49. There is a link about 3/4 down the page for "Find/Replace Dialog Component". Yours sounds like a nice project! --Sam
