I have been going through the Plugin creation tutorial ( I am using VS2005 SP1 on a Vista (x86) machine, running MPv1

All was going well until i got to this bit of code.
private void OnButtonOne()
  GUIDialogOK dlg = (GUIDialogOK)GUIWindowManager.GetWindow(
  dlg.SetHeading("Button has been pressed");
  dlg.SetLine(1, "You pressed button 1");
  dlg.SetLine(2, String.Empty);
  dlg.SetLine(3, String.Empty);

I get the compile error
"The type or namespace name 'GUIDialogOK' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)"

I am using the following as per the guide.

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using MediaPortal.GUI.Library;

Now, i can only assume that proceedures in Core.Dll have changed since this guide was last updated, but i may be wrong.

I have looked around and it maybe that they have moved these controls into a different dll (Dialogs.dll), but this file is not included within the precompiled release and i am having create problems compiling the differing dlls from the source code.

Any ideas??

Got some help from the MediaPortal forum.

The dll in question (dialogs.dll) is located in the plugins\windows directory.
