     Here are the Windows API calls for the ShowOpen, ShowSave, ShowPrinter, ShowColor and ShowFont (Thanks to Jaen Saul aka SlowByte for his post) dialogs. Also included is the beginnings of the ShowFonts dialog but I am haning some trouble getting it to work. These calls are more difficult to use than the CommonDialog control placed on a form, but don't have the version conflicts that Early-Bound and Form-Bound ActiveX controls have. In addition, I have added the ability to center the dialog on the form or center it on the screen.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
