I am using VS 2005 VB asp.net
I want to use a common dialog box. I have found several places that start with pulling out the need dialog from the toolbox. Problem is I don't have a section called dialog in my toolbox.
I did a right click "Choose items" .. In tab ".net framwork componets" I see some loose controls that could be it, but like
"open file dialog" is clicked on and states windows form and isn't on my tool bar (probably because windows form) Same with
"save file dialog".. In the tab "Com componets" starts off with nothing is clicked on (so I doubt anything is used in asp.net). But I found
"Microsoft Common dialog control version 6.0" I tried it, but it added nothing.
How do I install the dialog box tools?
PS does this forum have a search. I try to search before asking questions asked 5 times over, but I didn't see this feature.

You can't use Windows Forms controls, such as the dialog box, in ASP.NET.
You can use the
ASP.NET AJAX ModalPopup to achieve similar functionality.

I would like to try this, but got stumped we are on version VS 2005.. The site stated it had something for VS2005 but when I went to downloads it stated I downloaded
"2008-08-20 release of the AJAX Control Toolkit targets the official release of .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and Visual Studio 2008 SP1."
We have been told the framework 3.5 is not compatable with VS 2005, and this does state 2008.
Where can I find a download for VS 2005?
Also I assume these are just samples and some where in this package is something for the dialog box, it wasn't listed as a sample of controls.
