   this.OpenFileDialog1 = new System.Windows.Forms.OpenFileDialog();

    // Set the file dialog to filter for graphics files.
    this.OpenFileDialog1.Filter =
        "Images (*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF)|*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF|" +
        "All files (*.*)|*.*";

    // Allow the user to select multiple images.
    this.OpenFileDialog1.Multiselect = true;                           // <---- -Set Multi select to be true
    this.OpenFileDialog1.Title = "My Image Browser";

then....

if you hook up with fileok event, you can retrieve list of selected file from

private void OpenFileDialog1_FileOk(object sender,
    System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e)
{
     string[] files = OpenFileDialog1.FileNames;
}

Alright.That lets me select a group of files, but what if I want to just select a whole folder instead?

So, is there no way to select a group of folders?  I followed the link but couldn't find anything about selecting multiple folders.
