Is there a way to only select a directory without selecting a file using the OpenDialog or some other component? But it should be able to select files as well.

Thanx

hi,
yes you can use SHBrowseForFolder() with the ulFlag set to BIF_BROWSEINCLUDEFILES

example:

uses activex,shlobj;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
pi: PItemIDList;
selected : array[0..MAX_PATH] of Char;
bi : TBrowseInfo;
begin
FillChar(bi,SizeOf(bi),#0);
bi.pszDisplayName := @selected[0];
bi.lpszTitle := 'Please Select a Folder';
bi.ulFlags := BIF_BROWSEINCLUDEFILES;
pi := SHBrowseForFolder(bi);
if Assigned(pi) then begin
if SHGetPathFromIDList(pi,selected) then
ShowMessage(selected);
end
else ShowMessage('no selection');
CoTaskMemFree(pi);
end;
