when i run that script the dialogue is first placed at 0,0 until its rerun and moves it to centre, ok its not a fast machine but it would be nice if nothing was shown until final position is known and having to restart a long script would delay things further

I did try creating a another script within mine to detect the dialogue window, move it then exit, but that as good as has the same effect

Well the issue you are going to run into there, is by default it's going to start at 0,0. There aren't any starting coords that you can program into it specifically. So using this method, or even the MsgBox() Move method posted by herewasplato would basically be your only options.

Edit:

Forgot a word!

that was my initial question as if filesavedialogue is opened in notepad then it opens within the notepad window not at 0,0

so there must be a way to do it as Windows does it.

;Shift down for multiple files selection :

$Filename = "C:\Default.txt"; Just a default, can be left empty

$OpenDialog = ObjCreate("MSComDlg.CommonDialog")

; For description of the filter format, see:

; http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/cm...vbproFilter.asp

; This filter collection contains 4 separate filters

$ComplexFilter="Text (*.txt;*.ini)|*.txt;*.ini|Image (*.bmp;*.jpg)|*.bmp;*.jpg|Sound (*.mp3)|*.mp3|ALL (*.*)|*.*"

With $OpenDialog; set the dialog's properties

.DialogTitle = "Choose the file type you want to open..."

.Filter = $ComplexFilter ; Set my filter

.FilterIndex = 2 ; Default position in the above filter

.MaxFileSize = 260

.Flags = 512

.Filename = $Filename

.ShowOpen ; This will display the Open File Dialog

$FileName = .FileName ; Assign the filename selected to a variable.

EndWith

if @error then

msgbox(0,"","An error occured. Error number: " & @error)

else

msgbox(0,"","You have chosen the filename: " & $Filename)

endif

thanks!

excellent, so 512 enables multi-select, alas changes the style of the box to shortfilenames,

any way to alter this to a normal fileopendialogue box!?

found it for all others out there to have a Fileopendialogue centred onscreen

Flag in the above script needs to be 2000390
