Hello,

is there a way to replace the default "save as" Windows dialog with another (RB self-made version) "Save-as" dialog ?

So what I'm looking for is a system wide change of the windows "save as" dialog...any windows application that uses "save as" should use the "new" Save-As dialog ...

Heinz

This may help you:

Basically you will need to make use of the Windows API.

What do you actualy want to show to the user.

This is customisable (more than the normal):

My impression is that the OP wants to create a hook to provide specific places where a document may be saved for any program that uses the standard Windows controls. It isn't that common of practice but some organizations do such for document management.

yes.. what I need is a hook in the windows API so I can replace the default Save-as dialog... but from what I see in the links that Bob sent me (thx Bob) it's not so easy to implement a hook... (examples there are in C - but not in RB :-)
