Has anyone tried to invoke the TaskDialog?

The API reference: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb760540(v=vs.85).aspx

states that TaskDialog is exported by comctl32.dll, but I ran etl.exe on COMCTL32.DLL, and there was no such export (application also shows an error message).

But the OS clearly shows that TaskDialogs. There's something in this world that I don't understand.

The internets keep silence (searched MASM forums also).

OS: Win7.

Any ideas?

You probably need a manifest to access the extra functionality in COMCTL32.

Sorry, I get it.

But if that's a vista function then could someone please tell me how can I call a MessageBox of the new type, like that in an attached picture in Windows 7?

Most of these are custom made dialogs. Wink

You'll need a manifest.

Maybe this will work?
Code:
TD_WARNING_ICON = -1
TD_ERROR_ICON = -2
TD_INFORMATION_ICON = -3
TD_SHIELD_ICON = -4

TDCBF_OK_BUTTON = 1
TDCBF_YES_BUTTON = 2
TDCBF_NO_BUTTON = 4
TDCBF_CANCEL_BUTTON = 8
TDCBF_RETRY_BUTTON = $10
TDCBF_CLOSE_BUTTON = $20

Thank you very much, it works!

That manifest thing is really pain in the @rse.

It also works with this manifest:
Code:
directory 24,manifest 
resource manifest,\ 
         1,LANG_NEUTRAL,man 
resdata man 
         db '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>',13,10 
         db '<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">',13,10 
         db '<assemblyIdentity name="x.x.x" processorArchitecture="x86" version="5.1.0.0" type="win32"/> ',13,10 
         db '<description>no</description>',13,10 
         db '<dependency>',13,10 
         db '<dependentAssembly>',13,10 
         db '<assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls" version="6.0.0.0" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df" language="*" />',13,10 
         db '</dependentAssembly>',13,10 
         db '</dependency>',13,10 
         db '</assembly>',13,10 
endres
    


It's strange, yesterday I also created the simple app like this (initcommoncontrols, taskdialog, exitprocess), but it crashed every time when i tried to run it. Must have messed with the parameter order.
Pasted your call to TaskDialog to it and it worked.

@typedef:
Yesterday, while messing with TaskDialog, I managed to find all kind of stuff - from VB examples to Java, and in this whole bunch of stuff, there's also an example of creating custom TaskDialogs on CPP, I hope someone will also find it useful:
