  • Added a File Open/Save dialog (the CExtShellDialogFile class), which supports all features of the file dialogs in Windows XP/Vista and much more. It looks similar to the Windows Explorer, with a shell tree view on the left and the shell list view on the right. The state persistence is supported for the following elements and values: the window and splitter positions, selected folder in the tree view, splitter position, list view mode, column widths and sorting rules (see screenshot).
  • Added a Browse for Folder dialog (the CExtShellDialogBrowseFor class), which allows you to select a folder (see screenshot).

    • CExtShellItemData encapsulates descriptive data pertaining to a shell item.
    • CExtPIDL is a handy wrapper around an ITEMIDLIST pointer.
    • CExtArrayOfPIDLs is an array of ITEMIDLIST pointers.
    • CExtShellBase is a base class for any shell-related classes.
  • Added a CExtDMFP template class, which when applied to the MFC CDocManager, provides seamless integration between the MFC document/view architecture and the new Prof-UIS file dialogs.


  • Improved non-client area painting, which is now faster, friendly to multi-monitor desktops and perfectly fine when MDI tile, cascade and arrange commands are executed.
  • Added transparency support to the icons represented by the CExtCmdIcon class. The transparency level can now be specified with the nSCA parameter for the following methods:
    • Paint()
