TListView question

I'm trying to create an interface for selecting a saving location using a TListView.  Basically what I'd like for the user to see if what they would see if they opened up My Computer (local drives, mapped drives, etc.).  How do I do that?  I've searched for ListView and found a number of ways to add items to the view and their icons, but nothing about pulling resources such as mapped drives and the like.  Bascially I want to recreate the My Computer display within my program.

Tips and code would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

hi
i have a package of components that are wrappers around shellfolder calls.
one of the comps it has is called TkbBrowseForFolderDialog. which you call with the normal  .execute method.

you can change the rootfolder to dexktop / favorites/network etc and has a canexpanddomains propertie..
well anyway it does all that you need including showing mapped drives so would you like it?

InThe,

Your package sounds great.  I probably should have specified that I'm using Delphi 4.0. Is that a problem?  Is there a way that I can have the user select a directory location and have the path, etc. returned so that I can use that location information later?

If all of the above works out, then I'd be very interested in your package.  Is there a cost (other than the 200 points)?

Add a comment on how I can go about contacting you for this.

Thanks.
