BROWSE_FOR_PRINTER

I have all the code necessary to browse for folders using the SHBrowseForFolder API call.  Works great!

All I have currently is:
Public Const BIF_RETURNONLYFSDIRS = &H1

I would like to have these too:
Public Const BIF_BROWSEFORCOMPUTER = ???
Public Const BIF_BROWSEFORPRINTER = ???

Shouldn't this information be found within API Viewer?  Anyways, does anyone have the hex codes to fill in my constants please?

Some API constant that ship with VB are not documented in the API Viewer.
To look up the constants you will need the header file shipped in Visual Studio 97 or in Visual C++ or in the Platform SDK.
Constant for the SH_BrowseForFolder API are in the file shlobj.h and are:

BIF_BROWSEFORCOMPUTER = &H1000
BIF_BROWSEFORPRINTER = &H2000

Good work.

Thanks for the speedy response.  This is excellent information - found the shlobj.h

I have Visual Studio 6.0, is there a viewer (such as API Viewer within VB) for this header file?  Or is my only option is to load VC ++ to view this code?

I hate to keep bugging you, but what I thought I had I didn't.  I have all the code present to browse for folders, I was thinking (or hoping) that all I had to do was replace the

Public Const BIF_RETURNONLYFSDIRS = &H1
    with
Public Const BIF_BROWSEFORPRINTER = &H2000

But, this did not work as planned.  Could you send some code that performs a Browse for printer.
