Thank you Mr. Stefan,

I used this function. But it's not good.

I used a custom dialog which includes one text box and one button "Browse". When user click on button, "File Browse" dialog will be shown. User can choose the needed file and close dialog. But during "File Browse" dialog is shown, user can focus on the custom dialog and do something (put into textbox, click next button,etc ...). Custom dialog will store all user's action and implement them when "file browse" dialog is closed.

Please help me how to disfocus custom dialog when "file browse" is shown so that I can prevent user do any action on it.
