Remove the Read-only Checkbox from a Common Dialog Control

To remove the read-only checkbox from a common dialog control, add the following constant declaration to the module:

Global Const OFN_HIDEREADONLY = &H4&

Then, while calling the common dialog, write the following code:

Private Sub Command1_Click()   CommonDialog1.Flags=OFN_HIDEREADONLY   CommonDialog1.ShowOpenEnd Sub

When the Open File dialog box opens, it won’t have the read-only checkbox.
