For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode HTML tags when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Ignore HTML tags in this message" check box is unchecked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question in one forum from another, unrelated forum (such as the lounge). It will be deleted.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
displays a dialog to choose compression an parameters, and after "OK" they are stored somewhere (in the hwnd?) this process does work for the current session, but when i restart my app everything is gone. none of the structures (CAPDRIVERCAPS,CAPINFOCHUNK,CAPSTATUS,CAPTUREPARMS,etc.) gives me valid information about the chosen compression. what i need is the COMPVARS or AVICOMPRESSIONOPTIONS structure, but to access these seems to be a completely different approach.
The HWND object only exists for the life of the application, so any values stored inside it will be lost when the application terminates. You will need to save all the values yourself in some permanent storage area. See Where should I store my data?[^]; it's written for .NET but can easily be adapted to a Win32 app.
does anyone know how to store the compression settings to reuse them?

plz read the whole thread! i want to store the settings, that i made in the dialog! i haven't found a way to ACCESS the data/settings programmatically - that was my question.
i know thousands of ways to store/serialize/dump the data.
Hi everyone, I have a problem in vc6.
In a CFileDialog with 2 configured extensions (eg .Txt and .doc) I want
automatically change directory in my CFileDialog when the extension changes:
when I select the .txt extension I want the CFileDialog in the 'C:\FileTxt' directory,
when instead I select the extension .doc I want the CFileDialog in the directory 'C:\FileDoc'
with the corresponding files list ...
...Can someone help me with some example?
I want that automatically when I change the extension of the files I want to see, the dialog automatically also change the folder of the list of files. The '.txt' files are in one folder, the '.doc' files in another ...
I Try, but I'm not sure )
