Is there a way or a control that will allow me to specify a directory and have it list all the contents of that directory?  I'm essentially looking for that exact same thing you would see using Windows Explorer only I want that as a window in my form.  I would like to have the app icons, the date modified, size, etc, etc.

Thanks!

Mike

This is a demo of a C# project that you can convert to VB.NET.

You can use this tool for the conversion http://www.developerfusion.com/tools/convert/csharp-to-vb/

Another one...it will show you how to do most everything you ever wanted to know about how to make a "windows explorer" type interface.  It is heavily commented and pretty easy to understand.
