if you are looking for a way for the user to select a folder have a look at this:

Hi DanAvni
thanks for your time and the link
the download software was nice, but not what i was looking for.

VB has a component Dirlistbox which shows all the folders easily.

VB also has a component filelistbox which displays all the files for the current folder.

BUt surely you can use the treeview component to view all folders and when you click on a folder, you can then see all the files, just like explorer....

well i guess i am going to have to use Dirlistbox  with filelistbox..

How can you link these two components so that the filelsitbox shows all the files for the currently directory clicked in the dirlistbox??????

thanks woollar1
