    'browse for file' dialog box?

    I have a text field, where the user can type in the location of the text file they want to open, but I also want the user to be able to click a browse button and have one of them dialog boxes open up that let you find the file by browsing yourself.
    I understand that there is something called CFileDialog in MFC, but I can not use MFC, so is there an alternative way to do this?

    thanks a lot,
