  Name Description
Public method ShowDialog() Displays a common dialog. (Inherited from CommonDialog.)
Public method ShowDialog(Window) Displays a common dialog. (Inherited from CommonDialog.)

ShowDialog performs initialization tasks for all common dialogs before calling RunDialog. Since RunDialog requires an owner window, ShowDialog attempts to assign one in the following order of precedence:

  • The current application's active window.

  • The current application's parking window.

  • An internally generated hidden window.
