Default usnig the std open dialog in Visio VBA code

How can I make use of the common dialogs (i.e std open file etc) in a Visio
VBA project when there is not a form in view as the active window? I an
writing things into a DLL (using the flow chart demo as a starting point)
and while some of my process steps do have forms, some other steps do not.
In such a case how to I create a reference to the Microsoft Windows Common
Controls (SP6)

Solved. It looks like one can drop a reference on any form in the design
and thereby get a global reference that works elsewhere in the project. You
also need to use the right control, i.e. Microsoft Common Dialog Control 6.0
(SP6) not the one I mentioned. You can then add a line like: Dim
CommonDialog1 As CommonDialog in your routine and you are back in biz.

Sorry, but that still does not work, the ref is no good. In order to make
it all work I needed to create a "fake" dummy form to contain the common
dialog control and then use it through that. DCK

I used to use these

visApp.Application.DoCmd(visCmdFileSave)

for the embedded ones. I eventually moved on to just referencing the Excel
libraries which gave me access to the Office routines that are referenced in
the help files. The exposure is that you have now created a requirement for
the user of your DLL to have Office installed (the same one that you
developed with).

When I get into any new bind with VB I go check Randy Birch's site
(vbnet.mps.org)
