    Browse for File Win32 API

    I am writing a program in C++ and want add a button that when clicked opens a dialog box to allow a user to browse for a file

    I am using raw C++ and the Win32 API

    What functions do I need to accomplish this task? What type of controls should I use? I am used to using static, edit, button, listbox...

    After the user browses to a file and selects it, I want to be able to set a text box to the file path the user chose.

    I tried searching the forum and googling around for this but no luck

    any help would be great

    thanks

    You are looking for this: Open and Save As Dialog Boxes. You're welcome.
    I am a beginning C++ Win32 programmer with LOTS of questions. Hopefully matching answers can be found here...
