What is comdlg32.ocx?

Part of CMDIALOG by Microsoft

What is it?

Windows common dialogs are a set of libraries to display common dialogs within a software program. The Microsoft Windows common dialogs consist of the Open File, Save File, Open Folder, Find and Replace, Print, Page Setup, Font, and Color dialog boxes. Common dialogs help give users a consistent experience across different programs and also help give users an efficient, enjoyable experience.
Description of comdlg32.ocx from Microsoft
Common Dialog/Direct is a new DLL or class library which shows how to completely replace COMDLG32.OCX through Visual Basic code. The main advantage of this is you no longer need to put a control on a form to use common dialogs - just declare an instance of the class and you have a straight replacement. You can also incorporate the Common Dialog/Direct code straight into your own project if you want to reduce dependency files when you ship your project.
