     I found this code on the web and thought it would be something worth sharing. It uses some advanced tricks that puts the Common Dialog box on steroids. It uses hook procedures to add controls to a common Dialog, center it according to the placement of the parent window, add a status bar and more! Check out the screen shot to see what the final result looks like This example shows buttons for copying, moving, deleting and printing files by using just the Common Dialog box alone (although the code to do these are not included, I'm working on it and I'm sure you will be too). The URL where I found this code is in the ReadMe text file. If you've never been to this web site, you gotta check it out!

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
