    Question Office 2003 Style File Open Dialog

    I am able to get the "My Places" bar to show up in my MFC app, and it looks like I may even be able to customize "My places" for my application without changing every application that uses this dialog on the user's machine. Right now I'm looking at an MSDN article that seems like it will work for this (http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/is...3/CuttingEdge/)

    But... it's still not exactly 2003 style. Is there a way to get the "Tools" option (to add new places and such). Also, the older style dialog limits you to five of the "My places" shortcuts, where as the new one in Office 2003 is a big honking scrollable list.

    The last thing I would like to implement is a custom preview. The files aren't bitmaps or jpegs so I know I'll have to do the drawing code, but I'm just not sure how to hook that into the standard dialog.

    If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great!
