Use The Win32 Hooks To Allow To Add Extra Save Locations To The Save And Open Dialog Box?

Oct 23, 2011

I am wanting to find out how to use the Win32 hooks to allow me to add extra save locations to the save and open dialog box so as to allow as an option for files to be saved directly to a database rather than a file system.I have tried looking online but can't find anything remotely usable for this, the only data on hooks that I can find involves Window operation hooks, mouse, leyboard, and shell hooks, nothing to do with files.

Open/Save Dialog That Has Reduced Access To The System?

Dec 23, 2009

I am developing a Open/Save dialog that has reduced access to the system (no editting, moving or deleting existing files and folders). I have been succesful at achieving these goals now and I only have one thing left to tackle, but I can't figure it out yet.I want to change the things that are displayed in the top combobox. I want "My Computer" to be the top element and then show specified hard drives beneath it.

I have achieved all my previous goals by using hooks into the default dialogs and I wonder if my last problem could be solved in the same way.

Open File Dialog Not Showing Network Locations

Jun 3, 2009

I am doing setup project in VS 2008. I used custom action to select file from local drives. On the button click of custom action form, I am launching Open file dialog as ofdGetNetPath.ShowDialog When I run the setup on Vista, and click the button to open the openFileDialog, it hanged, form becomes non responsive and I have to cancel the setup.

on debugging I got following error "Current thread must be set to single thread apartment (STA) mode before OLE calls can be made. Ensure that your main function has STAThreadAttribute marked in it. This exception is only raised if a debugger is attached to the process."

so I used the following code:

Dim ofdThread As Thread   ofdThread = New Thread(New ThreadStart(AddressOf ShowOpenFileDialog))   ofdThread.SetApartmentState(ApartmentState.STA)   ofdThread.Start()   Private Sub ShowOpenFileDialog()           Me.ofdGetNetPath.ShowDialog() End Sub

now on button click, OpenFileDialog is shown but it is not showing Mapped drive or Network location... what should I need to do to show the mapped drive or network locations?

TextBox Save To Txt File Without Using The Save File Dialog

Mar 11, 2010

I am attempting to write a playlist for my media player which is already built. I have found a way to build a playlist for it but it would be helpful if I could save the contents of TextBox1 to a text file without using the save as. I am trying to get over a user inputting a file name for the finished text file so is it possible to write the file c: est.txt without using the save as dialog? I have found that I can use a vbs program file which creates a playlist in a folder. I save the vbs file text to the textbox then save it as a vbs file in the playlist directory, then execute the finished file to make the playlist.

Save Directory Dialog?

I would like to modify SaveFileDialog to instead save a new directory (which will contain new files automatically generated for the user based on the name of the directory). I can produce the necessary code to carry out the intended functionality, but I want the dialog to prompt for a 'folder name' instead of 'file name' and to not display 'save as type'. Is this possible? Is there a better solution for a create new folder/directory dialog? I know about folderbrowsedialog, but I need to force the user to name a new directory and identify the location

Each one is invoked by a different command on a menu. I would like to combine these three into one Save File Dialog on the program. I know that I would have to edit the "Filter" property of the dialog box to add in the other two types.

My questions, how do I code the program to save the file based off what is chosen from the filter.[code]...

Prevent Excel Save Dialog Progress?

Oct 21, 2009

I'm not sure if this is the right forum or not for this, but I'll post here until I hear otherwise.  This had really become a problem for me and I can't seem to find an answer.  A lot of my programs will export data to excel.  When the wokbook is saved it will popup a save dialog box with a progress bar and a cancel button.  The problem is the dialog box loves to steal focus.  This causes a problem when for instance right now it is modifying several work books and when I'm typing I could end up hitting the space bar when the dialog box steals the focus and it will cancel the save.  Is there some way to prevent the dialog from showing?

For an example this is some quick code I threw together.  I have several workbooks that have more data than I need to archive.  So it goes into each one and deletes those excess rows.  The workbooks are in 2003 format, but I'm running 2007.
