We have been asked recently how to display a Dialog window for the RoleTailored client that would collect a Directory path.

The old (good) Codeunit 412 “Common Dialog Management” was not suitable for that purpose (and honestly I would love to go for something more RTC oriented).

I thought myself, then, there may be a lot of useful Dialog windows based on System.Windows.Forms namespace.

  1. How to select a DIRECTORY
  2. How to select a FILE
  3. How to select a COLOR
  4. How to select a PRINTER

Attached you will find 1 unbounded page object in TXT format.

The code is fairly simple.
