    Unhappy Open file dialogue

    hi, I want to popup the open file dialogue menu(just to get the file path).

    when i try to call
    LPCTSTR file;
    CDocument::OnOpenDocument(file);


    it gives me this error.
    CDocument::OnOpenDocument' : illegal call of non-static member function


    what should i do, is there other way to popup the open or select file menu.

    Use CFileDialog.

    Code:
    CFileDialog theFileDialog(TRUE,"cpp", NULL,OFN_HIDEREADONLY|OFN_FILEMUSTEXIST,"cpp files(*.cpp)|*.cpp||");
    
    if(theFileDialog.DoModal()==IDOK)
    {
    	csFile= theFileDialog.GetPathName();
    }
    That should get you started.
