Customized File Save Dialog

The project is to provide a C++ function that invokes the Windows common dialog for File Save As, while extending it to support additional controls and functionality.

The additional functionality to be added is as follows:
a) A new “Options” button is added that calls a provided callback function when pressed.
b) A static text field is displayed below the options button that changes when the selected extension type changes. The descriptions and extension types are defined by the caller.
c) When the extension type (format) is changed, the filename is changed dynamically to have this extension in the same way that Microsoft Word or Excel does in their Save As dialog.
d) The layout of the new controls should be as is shown in the attached example image.

Code must be written in C++ or C# and must not use MFC or ATL in order to maintain the smallest possible small size.

Code must work as Windows 98, ME, XP, and 2000.

All functionality of the original common File SaveAs dialog must be retained. For example on Windows XP the common dialog includes a shortcuts bar on the left. It is not acceptable to re-code from scratch a minimal functionality Save As dialog.

An working example .exe calling the function to invoke the Save As dialog should be provided.

The function signature to invoke the extended Save As dialog should be as follows:

int SaveFileDialog(
char *in_filename, // Initial filename to display
char *in_initialDirectory, // Initial directory to display
char *in_filter // Sets the extension types
char *in_filterOptionDesc // Sets the extension type descriptions
int in_checkFileExists, // 0=false, 1=true
int in_checkPathExists, // 0=false, 1=true
int in_overwritePrompt, // 0=false, 1=true
int in_addExtension, // 0=false, 1=true
int *out_filterIndex, // extension type index
CALLBACK lpfnOptionPressed,
char *out_fileName ); // full path of file selected (260 chars in size)

Return value:
0 - User cancelled the operation
1 - User OK&'d the operation

Sample of filter string format:
in_filter += "JPEG Good for use on the Web (*.jpg)|*.jpg;|";
in_filter += "TIFF Good for editing (*.tif)|*.tif;|";
in_filter += "PNG Good for editing and use on the Web (.png)|*.png;|";
in_filter += "BMP Good for Windows compatibility (.bmp)|*.bmp;|";
in_filter += "Adobe Photoshop (.psd)|*.png;";

Sample of filter option description format (this is used for feature (b) above)
in_filterOptionDesc += "Set JPEG Compression|";
in_filterOptionDesc += "Set TIFF Compression|";
in_filterOptionDesc += "PNG Options|";
in_filterOptionDesc += "BMP Options|";
in_filterOptionDesc += "Photoshop Options";

If there is any question about the functionality of these parameters, then the programmer should refer to similar parameters described at this URL:

Dear vandelay (industries:)?),

I noticed your bid request here and thought I would put something together for you. I've attached a prototype exe for you. If you would like me to finish up the routine then just accept my bid and I should be able to get it to you very quickly.

The code will be written in C++ and will not use MFC or ATL at all. I will also provide a sample exe written with Visual C++ 6.0.

I look forward to hearing from you.
