I use the standard OpenDialog to select a file to open. To see the creation date of 
a file, I have to change the view to Details (in fact my preferred view) every 
time. I was looking for an attribute (in the Options) to configure, that always 
detail view is selected when the OpenDialog is activated. However I didn't find 
anything. Does somebody have a hint for this problem?

Answer:

Add this code to the OnFolderChange event of the dialog:
1   
2   procedure TForm1.OpenDialog1FolderChange(Sender: TObject);
3   var
4     H, H2: THandle;
5   begin
6     H := FindWindowEx(GetParent(OpenDialog1.Handle), 0, PChar('SHELLDLL_DefView'), 
7   nil);
8     H2 := FindWindowEx(H, 0, PChar('SysListView32'), nil);
9     if (H <> 0) and (H2 <> 0) then
10    begin
11      SendMessage(H, WM_COMMAND, $702C, 0);
12      Windows.SetFocus(H2);
13      PostMessage(H2, WM_KEYDOWN, VK_SPACE, 0);
14    end;
15  end;
