Dialogs in Visual Basic

imgThere are several dialog boxes that can also be displayed: OpenFileDialog, SaveFileDialog , FontDialog, ColorDialog , PrintDialog img, and PrintPreviewDialog img. The dialogs, such as the color dialog shown on the right are the same dialog windows that you see in other Windows applications.
  1. Start a new Windows application and name it Dialogs.
  2. Scroll down to find the ColorDialog img control and double click. It does not appear on the form, but in the panel below the form. Add FontDialog img and OpenFileDialog img.
  3. Add buttons img named BtnColor, BtnFont, and BtnPicture.
  4. Add a label img called LblMessage. Set AutoSize to True.
  5. Add a picture box img named Pic1. Set SizeMode to AutoSize.
  6. Add the code for BtnColor and BtnFont as shown below.
