Documentation by John Kelly  QFILEDIALOG


This is a new custom component in RAPIDQ2.INC. Creates an Open or Save Dialog box that is set by Mode property. The dialog box is sizeable and allows selection of multiple files. If you use it to save a file it will ask if you want to overwrite the existing file. There will be icons for quick links to the desktop, network locations, and myDocuments folder. Windows 32 only. Cannot make arrays of this object and must be declared at the GLOBAL level.
