[.net] file open dialog [solved]

Recommended Posts

Hi! my question may be really simple: I want a component that has the properties of a FileOpenDialog. But it shouldn't be a dialog but a component, so I can use it on my form. Does something like that exist in VS.Net or do I have to code it myself? Thanks! Constantin [Edited by - conman on August 16, 2004 12:01:29 PM]

The answer is as simple as the question: No.

It is not present in the Framework. Of course there are 3rd party components but it is really easy to make one that suites your needs.

BTW: some extra info that I forgot to add in my post:

The technical creation of user controls is not that dificult the hard part is the design.

To make a reusable control that isn't too specialized for a single application but does add ease of development over just adding a treeview and a combobox is hard.

There are some excelent examples in the MSDN and I would like to point out some very special classes/attributes that add that little extra:

Attributes:
TypeConverter
Editor

Class:
UITypeEditor

These allow you to create custom property editors in Visual Studio! Very cool!

I could write an article about it I guess...

Cheers
