directory list box - deleting a directory

How can I determine which folder I've selected and then delete that selected folder?  
I have tried using
kill dir1.path & "*.*" followed by
rmdir dir1.path  

then I call
dir1.refresh

I would think this would work, but I must be missing something.

If I need to be doing this another way, I'm willing to change the methods.

Thanks in advance for the help.

kill dir1.path & "*.*"

should be:

kill dir1.path & "\*.*"
