    Me.button1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(53, 37)
    Me.button1.AutoSize = True 
    Me.button1.Text = "Show dialog with custom places." 
    Me.button1.UseVisualStyleBackColor = True

    Handles button1.Click

    ' Add Pictures custom place using GUID.

    ' Add Links custom place using GUID
    openFileDialog1.CustomPlaces.Add(New FileDialogCustomPlace _
