I am trying to figure out how to use the OPENFILENAME structure to open multiple files instead of one. On this link here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winui/winui/windowsuserinterface/userinput/commondialogboxlibrary/aboutcommondialogboxes/openandsaveasdialogboxes.asp it says the explorer-style version of multiple file selections: Explorer-style dialog boxes - The directory and file name strings are NULL separated, with an extra NULL character after the last file name. This format enables the Explorer-style dialog boxes to return long file names that include spaces. When I put the filename into my file variable, it is terminated rather than seperated since it uses NULL to seperate. So instead of getting a full list of files opened, I am getting only the directory (the first item to get put into the field). Is there a way to actually retrieve this string, or since NULL or '\0' terminates a char it will not work with a char*? Here is a full code example of what I have so far, it errors out because the string is null terminated rather than seperated by NULLs.
#include <windows.h>
#include <commctrl.h>
#include <stdio.h>

LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hWnd, UINT msg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
	switch(msg)
	{
		case WM_DESTROY:
			PostQuitMessage(0);
			break;
		case WM_CREATE:
			HWND hBtn;
			hBtn = CreateWindow("BUTTON", "Open", WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | BS_PUSHBUTTON, 8, 8, 88, 58, hWnd, (HMENU)101, GetModuleHandle(NULL), NULL);
			break;
		case WM_COMMAND:
			if(HIWORD(wParam)==BN_CLICKED)
			{
				if(LOWORD(wParam)==101)
				{
					char file[256];
					file[0] = '\0';
				
					char dir[255];

					int  offset = 0;

					OPENFILENAME ofn;
					ZeroMemory(&ofn, sizeof(ofn));

					ofn.lStructSize = sizeof(OPENFILENAME);
					ofn.Flags = OFN_ALLOWMULTISELECT | OFN_EXPLORER | OFN_PATHMUSTEXIST | OFN_FILEMUSTEXIST | OFN_NOCHANGEDIR;
					ofn.hwndOwner = hWnd;
					ofn.lpstrFile = (char*)file;
					ofn.lpstrFilter = "Wav Files (*.wav)\0*.wav\0\0";
					ofn.lpstrDefExt = "*.wav";
					ofn.lpstrInitialDir = "c:\\windows\\media\\";
					ofn.nMaxFile = 256;
					ofn.nFilterIndex = 1;
					ofn.lpstrFileTitle = NULL;
					ofn.nMaxFileTitle = 0;

					GetOpenFileName(&ofn);
					
					if(file[0]!='\0')
					{
						offset = ofn.nFileOffset;
						int maxItems = sscanf((const char*)file, (const char*)'\0', &dir);
						int i = 0;
					}
				}
			}
			break;
	}
	return DefWindowProc(hWnd, msg, wParam, lParam);
}

int APIENTRY WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR szCmdLine, int iCmdShow)
{
	WNDCLASS w;
	MSG msg;

	w.cbClsExtra = 0;
	w.cbWndExtra = 0;
	w.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)GetStockObject(LTGRAY_BRUSH);
	w.hCursor = NULL;
	w.hIcon = NULL;
	w.hInstance = hInstance;
	w.lpfnWndProc = WndProc;
	w.lpszClassName = "test";
	w.lpszMenuName = NULL;
	w.style = 0;
	RegisterClass(&w);
	HWND hWnd = CreateWindow("test", "test", WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, 100, 100, 100, 100, NULL, NULL, hInstance, NULL);
	ShowWindow(hWnd, iCmdShow);
	UpdateWindow(hWnd);

	while(GetMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0))
	{
		TranslateMessage(&msg);
		DispatchMessage(&msg);
	}
	return 0;
}
