|This is the DLL version of the VB6 CCRP
Extended File Dialog.
Built entirely around the
Common Dialog APIs, the CCRP Extended FileDialog DLL provides developers the same
increase in functionality that the VB6 OCX provides, surpassing that provided with
the VB ComonDIalog control.Fully configurable as a custom File Open or File Save dialog,
now your application has full control over the dialog's attributes. Add custom captions,
reorganize the controls, and/or add your own to create a distinct file dialog.

The CCRP Extended FileDialog Control offers
many features not found in the standard FileOpen and FileSave common controls provided as
part of Visual Basic, including:
- User definable startup position.
- User definable size of the dialog.

- The user cancelled the dialog (no more error checking for
when the user presses the Cancel button);
- The dialog is about to be destroyed;
- The dialog has been initiated and is about to be displayed;

- A method that allows the programmer to add one or more VB
controls onto the ccrpFileDialog.
- A CommDlgHwnd property to return the Window handle of the
common dialog displayed, for numerous uses, including callbacks.
- Ability to specify the form to which the ccrpFileDialog is
modal (not only the form the ccrpFileDialog is sited on but any loaded form the programmer
chooses to assign).
- Dialog control ID's exposed to allow modifying the size,
caption, position, and visibility of any of the internal controls of the common dialog.
- Built-in constants for flags, help, internal controls,
