Hi,

Where U want to get?. There are some controls like CComboBox where in they have their own function like Dir(), which will fill them with directory structure. Or else U can try using IShellFolder.

About how  to use IShellFolder, search in codeguru for explorer.

Try it out.

Use CFileFind to get the files in a directory one at a time.

Then stick the filse into a list box or list control or whatever.

Listboxes do support a Dir command, but that only gives you short (8.3) files names.
