CommonDialog::ShowDialog Method

Runs a common dialog box with a default owner.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public:
DialogResult ShowDialog()

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms::DialogResult
DialogResult::OK if the user clicks OK in the dialog box; otherwise, DialogResult::Cancel.

This method implements RunDialog.

The following code example uses the ColorDialog implementation of CommonDialog and illustrates creating and showing a dialog box. This example requires that the method is called from within an existing form, which has a TextBox and Button placed on it.

private:
   void button1_Click( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      ColorDialog^ MyDialog = gcnew ColorDialog;
      // Keeps the user from selecting a custom color.
      MyDialog->AllowFullOpen = false;
      // Allows the user to get help. (The default is false.)
      MyDialog->ShowHelp = true;
      // Sets the initial color select to the current text color.
      MyDialog->Color = textBox1->ForeColor;

      // Update the text box color if the user clicks OK  
      if ( MyDialog->ShowDialog() == ::System::Windows::Forms::DialogResult::OK )
      {
         textBox1->ForeColor = MyDialog->Color;
      }
   }
