    not sure of the setting for this

    Code:
    ' setup info for browse button
    Sub getdefaultfile()
        CommonDialog1.Filter = "all files (*.dwg) |*.dwg|"
        '    & "Pdf FIles (*.pdf) |*.pdf|"
        '    & "Pdf FIles (*.dwg) |*.dwg|"
        CommonDialog1.FilterIndex = 2
        CommonDialog1.DialogTitle = "Select File"
        CommonDialog1.InitDir = mssearchpath
        CommonDialog1.ShowOpen
        newfilename = CommonDialog1.FileTitle
        lsttomove.AddItem CommonDialog1.FileTitle
        
        
    End Sub

    Default Re: multi select dialog box

    I would abandon the CommonDialog control, especially if you're using vba, since the vb license doesn't allow for use in vba. Instead, use the windows api. Here is a class that wraps some file api's. I got ifrom Randall Rath, but I added the functionality for multiselect options.

    Default Re: multi select dialog box

    Thank you for the info works great

    But I do have another question

    When I was using the common dialog control I would use
    newfilename = CommonDialog1.FileTitle

    with newfilename being what was selected

    guess i am not sure what to use to get what i have selected in the dialog box

    thanks again

    Here's a sample of how you might use the class.

    Code:
    Public Sub OpenFile()
        'sample to show how to use FileDialogs
        Dim objFile As FileDialogs
        Dim strFilter As String
        Dim strFileName As String
        
        Set objFile = New FileDialogs
        'desc,filter combinations must all be separated with pipe char "|"
        strFilter = "All Files (*.*)|*.*|Drawings (*.dwg)|*.dwg"
        objFile.OwnerHwnd = ThisDrawing.hWnd    'bind the dialog to the window
        objFile.Title = "Open a drawing"
        'default dir is CurDir
        objFile.StartInDir = "c:\"
        objFile.Filter = strFilter
        'return a valid filename
        strFileName = objFile.ShowOpen
        If Not strFileName = vbNullString Then
            'use this space to perform operation
            MsgBox strFileName
        End If
        Set objFile = Nothing
        
        
    End Sub
