ReadDirectoryChangesW() can be used to observe the changes in a directory.

Please create a thread to observe the changes for the directory which have text file. If the changed file(FileName of FILE_NOTIFY_INFORMATION) is your text file, then notify your dialog to read data from text file. This way you can synchronize the text file with your application.
