OpenDialog

Is it possible only to select a catalog with the OpenDialog component in Delphi 4 ?, what do I do else ?

I would like the same style like Microsoft Word 97, as in the change directory for placing documents.

Thanks, Claus

hi

I'm sure it's possible to do that, but there's also another solution: the 'SHBrowseForFolder' function, declared in the ShellAPI-unit.
if you have problems in using this function, tell me

//WHAT FOR?
there are plenty of components for directory selection.
e.g. AHMFolderBrowser from AHM Triton Tools
