Hi,

I'm making my first ever dll for dbpro, I have made it work with messageboxs, which I know isn't hard, but still made me proud

so next I thought Open and Save dialogs. but I don't even know where to start I figured it had something to do with GetOpenFileName?

I really have no idea

so anyhelp, or tutorials people no off are more than welcome

Yours

N3wton,

I found a short while ago this code snippet made by Jess T. It shows how you can access Open/Save file dialogs:



It is written in DBPro, but it might help you to work out how this sort of thing could be done as a dll.

cool well done , you have blue gui don`t you , you can now download the plugins source that will give you plenty of info , but you must be able to understand classes to make sense of it all .

I've already made such a dll.
You can get it using the link below,if you're interested.
It contains a lot of other functions too.

Best regards
Peter.
