CommonFileDialog owner


When you have a program with multiple windows and you use the CommonOpenFileDialog or CommonSaveFileDialog on any window, it always takes the main window as the owner.
Please give us an option to choose the owner window and make the window from where the dialog is called the owner window.

I have a big problem with this issue in a Multithread Application, because the ShowDialog of the CommonSaveFileDialog Tries to request the Application Main Window that is on another thread and Explodes.
So if you can modify the Windows avoiding this. Thank You.

I agree, this is totally necessary. The old Forms.FolderBrowserDialog always takes the window from where it is called as the owner window.

Thanks for the feedback. We will consider adding this option in future updates of the Code Pack.
