    Question Finding out control IDs

    Can anyone tell me how to find the control IDs for the "Name","size","type", and "Modified" buttons that come up in an Open/Save dialog box when the Details button is pressed? Or does anyone know these control IDs?

    Thanks!

    Do you mean the header control titles of a ListCtrl?
    I think there is no Control ID for a column header.

    I don't know what they are called. they are the buttons that appear when you press the Details button in any Open/Save dialog. They are the ones that allow you to sort the files by name, type, size, or modified. What I want to do is have the list of files sorted by one of these before the open/save dialog opens to the user. I already know how to simulate a button being pressed but i need the control id.

    See the post #2.
    These "buttons" are not the Buttons. They are the part (parts) of the Header control, not the controls themselves!

    So does that mean there is no way to access or control them?
