    Ok, well I thought I had it solved but alas I have come to the conclusion I have absolutely no idea about how I'm going to do this.

    Please, can someone post some code instead of a link to msdn? I've browsed msdn, visited 34 (exactly) websites from google and searched various forums with nothing to show for it, I even converted VB code for this into C as near as I could but still it doesn't work.

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I can't remember exactly what I entered, but it was something like OFN_ALLOWMULTISELECT parse string.
