On my app I have 2 textboxes and a button. The button copies the specified file from textbox1 to textbox 2. Textbox 2 should show the folder in which the user wants the file in. How do I make the button actually do this operation?

Can you clarify what you want ? ie are you lookinf just for the absolute path to where you've copied the file to, or do you just want to copy the file as in angelIII's example ?

Or do you mean that text2 is actually linked to a "browse for folder" style-dialog so that user can specify he wants to copy the file from one folder to another ?

To enhance your user interface, here's some code that will bring up the Browse For Folder dialog, and return the selected folder as a string:
