Browsing To A Network Folder

In Delphi 5 you've got OpenDialog, but it doesn't let you get to Network Neighborhood like the one that appears when you open a file with Notepad or any other Windows app.

I seem to remember an earlier version of Delphi having a dialog with a Network button, but I might be mistaken. Even if I'm not, it doesn't seem to be available any more in Delphi 5.

Is there any way to access a dialog that will let me browse to a folder on a network machine?

Did you check the options in the object inspector? I know in D7 there's an option to show/not show the 'network' button. It might be something different in D5.

Doh!

You won't believe how many times I looked for that option and didn't see it. I feel a bit of a prat now! :)

Anyway, here's the points....

All I need to do now is work out how to select a folder without selecting a file.

I've turned the option on and can now get to my network folder, but I've discovered that I can't select it as it doesn't contain any files - just other folders.
