read before u reply...

there is no OpenFileDialog ready... i must create it...


and this is how you reply to somebody trying to help. obviously other people have been able to figure it out. figure it out yourself.


the reason i replied like this is because i wasted my time trying to make the wrong help u gave me work... anyway thnx for trying to help but careful not to make it more difficult for those asking for help...


Hi! according to what i understand you post is that you want to open an mp3 file from a filedialog box. If this is what you mean then do the following
1) Double click on the button that you want the filedialogbox to appear when clicked.

2) On the code editor add the following code

Dim file As New OpenFileDialog
file.Filter = ("mp3|.mp3")


thanx but jbennet gave me the correct code...

but thank you anw
