Call the InitializeOpenFileDialog method in the form's constructor or Load method. The example also requires that the Click event of the Button control is connected to the event handler defined in the example.

	private void InitializeOpenFileDialog()
	{
		this.openFileDialog1 = new System.Windows.Forms.OpenFileDialog();

		// Set the file dialog to filter for graphics files. 
		this.openFileDialog1.Filter = 
			"Images (*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF)|*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF|" + 
			"All files (*.*)|*.*";

		// Allow the user to select multiple images. 
		this.openFileDialog1.Multiselect = true;
		this.openFileDialog1.Title = "My Image Browser";
		
	}

	private void fileButton_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
	{
		openFileDialog1.ShowDialog();
