Common Dialog Classes 

In addition to class CDialog, MFC supplies several classes derived from CDialog that encapsulate commonly used dialog boxes, as shown in the following table. The dialog boxes encapsulated are called the "common dialog boxes" and are part of the Windows common dialog library (COMMDLG.DLL). The dialog-template resources and code for these classes are provided in the Windows common dialog boxes that are part of Windows versions 3.1 and later.
