************************ OPENDLG CONTROL PROPERTIES ************************

PropertyTypeFunction
========================================================================
FilterStringAt the bottom-right of the Open and Save As Common
Dialogs there is a drop-down listbox which allows
the user to select what type of files to display
in the 'File Name' combo-box.

If the filter contains:

Write Files(*.WRI)|*.wri|Word Files(*.DOC)|*.doc|

The 'File Name' box will display files having an
extension of either 'wri' or 'doc'.

If the filter contains:

A Files (*.A)|*.a|B Files(*.B)|*.b|C Files(*.C)|*.c|

The 'File Name' box will display files having an
extension of either 'a', 'b', or 'c'.

FilterIndexIntegerA filter string specifies one or more file types.
The 'FilterIndex' property determines which file
type will initially be presented in the 'File
Name' combo-box. In the previous example a value
of 3 for this property would open the dialog box
with all files having the extension 'c'.

FileStringWhen using the Open dialog this property will contain
the full pathname of the user-selected file.
When using the Save As dialog you may initialize this
property with a default 'Save As' pathname.

FileTitleStringThis property contains the filename part of the
'File' property.

InitialDirStringYou may set this property to select the initial
directory presented in the dialog box. If you do
not set this property the current directory will
be used.

TitleStringThe dialog box title defaults to either 'Open' or
'Save As', you may choose a different title for the
dialog box by setting this property.

DefaultExtStringThe 'Open' or 'Save As' dialogs append this string
to the filename if the user fails to enter and
extension.

DoItBoolSetting this property to TRUE invokes the dialog box,
when the statement which sets this property completes
the user will have closed the dialog box.

CreatePromptBoolSetting this property to TRUE causes the dialog box
to generate a message box to notify the user when
a specified file does not exist and to make it
possible for the user to specify that the file
should be created.

HideReadOnlyBoolSetting this property to TRUE hides the Read Only
check box.

FileMustExistBoolSetting this property to TRUE specifies that the
user can type only the names of existing files in
the File Name edit control.

OverwritePromptBoolSetting this property to TRUE causes the Save As
dialog box to generate a message box if the
selected file already exists. The user must confirm
whether to overwrite the file.

PathMustExistBoolSetting this property to TRUE specifies that the
user can type only valid paths.

FileOffsetIntegerAfter the dialog box exits this property contains
a zero-based offset from the beginning of the path
to the filename specified by the File property.

ExtOffsetIntegerAfter the dialog box exits this property contains
a zero-based offset from the beginning of the
path to the filename extension specfied by the File
property.
