How would I go about making a messagebox that asked the user to type in something (like the name of a file) so that it could be retreived? I am trying to screat a program that loads .ms3d files. Sorry I just don''t know much about OpenGL right now...

That''s not an OpenGL thing. Read about Win32 programming, or MFC if that''s what you''re using.

If your using Visual Basic it has an InputBox function that you can use to retrieve information from the user.

If your using C/C++, then your going to either have to make your own Dialog Box, then call it. Or you can use one of the prebuilt dialog boxes in the Common Dialog Box Library.

Look up Dialog Box Types in your Win32 Help File.
