I have a dialog in which I want the user to input the
path to a folder inside an Edit control.  I also want a
"browse" button next to the Edit control to bring up a
selection dialog for picking the folder.  I know how to
bring make the "browse" button bring up a dialog for
selecting a File by using CFileDialog.  How do I make
it bring up a dialog for selecting a Folder?  Is there
such a thing like a CDirectoryDialog?

there is no CDirectoryDialog, but there is SHBrowseForFolder() you can get source code from www.codeguru.com from "Dialogs" section or you can get non-explorer common dialog from Microsoft FTP(ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSLFILES) file DIRPK.ZIP
