I need to user SHBrowseForFolder API call defined in Shell32 for letting the user to select a folder. I couldn't find the declaration in API viewer and continue to define type of my own. I succeeded in getting the dialog. But when I close/Cancel, am getting Bad calling convention runtime error. I tried altering the TYPE and all. But no use. Can anybody help me with this declaration. I just want to display the selected folder in a Editbox. Thanks.
