More information:
This is a class that subclasses the common dialog control, thereby allowing you to customize it. The major customization used is a common dialog that provides a list of files in a winamp play list. The class also includes subclassed versions of most of the common dialogs provided by the standard windows common dialog control.

Included is a test application that instantiates the class and opens the selected dialog.

This class has some advantages over the VB common dialog control control. You don't need a reference to the OCX, which saves you space on your distribution. You also have the ability to add other controls to the dialog, size the dialog and position the dialog how you wish. This is because the class calls the dialog directly from COMCTRL32.DLL and subclasses the dialog to allow for events to be processed.
