WPF File Dialogs

Arghhhhhh. What is that ? Are they kidding or what ? WPF is supposed to be the next generation API and the only thing they provide out of the box is that ?

  • Crappy Windows 95 era icons ? CHECK
  • “classic” style drop down boxes and buttons ? CHECK

What a shame really. On Vista this is so lame. I hope they provide something better in the next version of WPF ! Ah well, let’s pinvoke into the new Vista APIs then… 

Luckily, they are providing samples just for that. But why not include it then? Time & quality constraints aren’t really a good excuse when it comes to things used as much as a file dialog.
