In VB4 I have a form (frm1),  with a ListBox (List1), and an Image (Img1).
There is also a DirListBox (Dir1) and a DriveListBox (Drive1).
I want to select any directory of pictures from my Hard-Disk, to view the names of the picture-files in the ListBox (List1), and to view the pictures in the Image (Img1), by making a click in their names in the ListBox.

And your question is?

When the directory changes, clear the list box and search for files with a given name using the DIR() command. If the function returns a string, add it to the list box.

In the _Click event of the list box grab the file name and use LoadPicture() to get the image.

Private Sub Dir1_Change()
File1.Path = Dir1.Path


End Sub

Private Sub Drive1_Change()
Dir1.Path = Drive1.Drive


End Sub

Private Sub File1_Click()
ImG1.Picture = LoadPicture(Dir1.Path & "\" & File1.filename)
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

End Sub

The question is:
1) How will be shown the files in the ListBox?  How can they appear?

2) How could I present the pictures in the    ImageControl (Img1), by a click on their names in the ListBox?

The above answer of MrDelphi does not work, as there is no FileListBox!

..then you should reject DrDelphi's answer :)

Try this and see if it's what you're looking for...

Option Explicit
Dim PathSep As String

Private Sub Dir1_Change()
Dim retfile As String
Dim ValidFiles As String

'//clear the image control and the listbox
List1.Clear
Img1.Picture = LoadPicture()

'//add the extension for the filetypes you want to appear in the
'//listbox to this string
ValidFiles = "jpg, bmp, ico"

'//the following avoids an error if you select a root directory
PathSep = "\"
If Right(Dir1.Path, 1) = "\" Then PathSep = ""

'//loop through all the files in the selected directory and check
'//for the file extension in "ValidFiles". If found, add the file to the listbox
retfile = Dir(Dir1.Path & PathSep & "*.*")
Do While retfile <> ""
    If InStr(1, ValidFiles, LCase(Right(retfile, 3))) Then List1.AddItem retfile
    retfile = Dir
Loop
End Sub

Private Sub List1_Click()
Img1.Picture = LoadPicture(Dir1.Path & PathSep & List1.List(List1.ListIndex))
End Sub
