    How to modify file open/save dialog?

    Does anyone have sample code, or document on how to modify the standard file open/save dialogs? I'd like to add a checkbox to a save dialog so the user can choose whether or not they'd like the checksum calculated before saving. I know it can be done as I've seen other apps do it, but not quite sure how.

    basically you need to supply a template dialog and a
    hookprocedure to your OPENFILENAME structure.
    I found this quite informative. Click on "Open and Save As dialog boxes" in the left frame. That'll take you to customising an explorer-type of
    'Save As' - dialog aswell as a description
    on customising old-style-boxes.

    I have never done this but I know something about this. You can customise "File Open\Save Dialog" by creating a class which inherit CFileDialog.

    Hmmm, seems too involved, so I think I'll just add another menu item instead. Thanks for the pointers though.
