I am not a VB expert and I just can't get this thing to work.
In html you can use :
<input type="file">

all I'm trying to do is this exact thing.

My code so far for this part is :

Private Sub b_browse_Click()
Dim browseForFiles As New ShellFolderView
Dim pfi As FolderItem
Dim fileReturnName As String
fileReturnName = browseForFiles.PopupItemMenu(pfi)
End Sub


the popupItemMenu returns an error , and I just can't understand why.
My idea is that I need to do something with the pfi (set a folder) but I can't understand how.

I just found the answer.

Instead of using :

Dim browseForFiles As New ShellFolderView

I'm using :
Dim myShell As New Shell
Dim FoldItem As FolderItem
Dim l1 As Long
Dim l2 As Long
Set FoldItem = myShell.BrowseForFolder(l1, "Select Folder", l2)



And it works..

I'll leave the question open because I know I'll have a different question in a few momments.

As I thought it dosen't work.

the code is :
Dim myShell As New Shell
Dim FoldItem As FolderItem
Dim l1 As Long
Dim l2 As Long
FoldItem = myShell.BrowseForFolder(l1, "Select Folder", l2)


It opens the GUI as I want , but when I close it (and the return thing get to work) I get an Error.

I have a reference to "Microtosft Shell control and automation"

The complexity of deleting a question , creating a new one and then accepting an answer dosen't worth it.
