How do I fill a List View Control using DlgDirList or DlgDirListComboBox?

I can fill a list box with this:

char szPath [255] = {"c:\\"};

Can I do the same with a list view control?

    Not by default.

    However you can use CFileFind to find the files/directories and add the items individually to the list control.

      CFileFind finder;
       BOOL bWorking = finder.FindFile("*.*");
       while (bWorking)
          bWorking = finder.FindNextFile();
          // do something with finder.GetFileName()

    Another thought.   You could also cheat.
    Have a list or combo that is hidden.  Fill that as you  posted above.  Then loop throught the contents, get the string and use that as the item to insert into the list control.
