Need a Delphi component to list files in various folders
Posted on 2008-06-25
Hi, I'm a Delphi developer and I can't find the right component for this problem. I've searched thru the net - there are thousands of filelist descendants that display files from a SPECIFIC folder, and can be attached to a treeview or something. Bu no, what I need is a different thing.
I'm developing a file finder app. I'd like to display search results from different folders, sometimes even different drives, with not just their name but the containing folder attached as a column. I'm struggling to make it with a grid right now, but it's bad and difficult. I'm sure there ARE controls that can help me but I can't find them.
So what I need is a control that:
- holds items inserted one by one (not like "all stuff from a folder")
- supports multiple folders, displaying the path for each item,
- supports the standard windows right-clicking context menu (not a simulated one).
Is there such a thing?
Sharewares are okay, I'd be happy to pay for the proper one.
Please tell me if there is a thing that matches all criteria above.
Thanks in advance.
