I need to have custom save/open file dialogs but
since the .NET ones are sealed it can't be inherited, neither can the FileDialog class from which they inherit. Does anyone know of a good approach to creating a custom dialog for this purpose? What I need is something as simple as an
additional textfield rightmost in the dialog.
I would really really(!!) want to use the functionality in the available controls. I have come up with two approaches, of which the second I really don't know how to do.. =)
either (1) create a new control which aggregates a SaveFileDialog control for some functionality (like opening the stream to file, etc.)
or (2) make it 2 separate windows that stay next to each other, and remove the window decoration.
any more suggestions? Has anyone done this? Please let me know if you think you can help.
