Hi.
In my form I should save more then 3 files at one time. so I Want to select where to Put them. I can't use the commondialog because It's more then one file. so if I use commondialag I should call it one after one to save 3 files in the same folder.
and I dont like to use a Drive and a Dir, because It appears like windows 3.1.
can I put any folder tree containing: my computer, the desktop, the recycle bin, like the folder tree in a windows explorer??

Sorry but I mean: put a folder explorer in my form, not call a folder explorer dialog.
I want the folder explorer to still in my form, and I want my program to work as I choose in the folder..
to more explain:
when I choose any folder, the program will look if my specific files are in this folder, and if yes, I will add them to a list box.
thank you

You can use with FileListBox, DirListBox, and DriveListBox to do that..

You could possibly do it with a TreeView, though it would take a lot of work
