They''re just there to make your life easier. You won''t have to create a window yourself everytime you want to display something, just use a one-line (at least in most languages) statement to do everything for u.

If''ve you talking about the standard dialogs (like open and save), the advantage is that when a new version of windows (or an enhancement) comes out your app takes advantage of the changes.

For instance: Office 97 uses custom open/save dialogs, so under Windows 98 and higher, while most apps show a "desktop" button in the open/save dialog, Office does not.

Basically you''re making your app non-upward compatible.
