Have a look at this little article I wrote: http://www.emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2006/03/Folders-synchronization-using-the-SystemIO-namespace.aspx

also have a look at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/8cae6c17(VS.80).aspx to find how to use VB6 controls in .Net (and I would avoid that if possible)

Hey,

I already have this one. But in this version I can't seem to find the folderviewer and fileviewer... So I thought the Visual Basic.NET power pack is another pack than the Visual Basic PowerPack 3...

Can you tell me where I can find this folderviewer and fileviewer control?

Thanks,
Pascal

I see that you are already using VB2008. Since VB2003, you already have those dialogs (which where not existing in VB2002 and was implemented into the PowerPack).

Hi Ipaulino,

Same problem. This link takes me to the power pack 3.0, but I think I need another power pack. It's realy confusing...

But that's for Visual Studio 2003 and not 2008.

Hi Emoreau,

The FolderViewer/FileViewer are not dialogs, but controls. If you take a look at the link I posted (scroll down) you'll see what I mean. However, I can't find these controls... I am indeed using Visual Studio 2008 with all updates...

This code is not available anymore. I just checked in the current version of the VB PowerPacks and it is not there.

What is your need exactly? Maybe you can use the OpenFileDialog instead (see http://www.emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2003/06/Common-Dialogs.aspx). Or if you really want to do it manually, have a look at http://www.emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2003/04/A-Folder-Browser-dialog-in-Windows-Forms.aspx.

Well, I use FileListBox now in a program to copy PSP Games to a PSP device. On the left hand side of the Window you have a filelistbox pointing to the hd folder where my games are stored. On the right hand side you see the contents of the memstick in my PSP.

Everything works fine. I can select a game and click the button to copy it over to the PSP (I actually made this for my girlfriend who's not that great with computers:-))

But now I was trying to use multiselect. In VB6 I could do this:
For i=0 to List1.ListCount-1
    If List1.Selected(i) then
        process List1.List(i).Text
    End If
Next i

This doesn't work in VB.NET anymore :( Selected(i) is not recognized.... That's basically what I want to do.

Hi Emoreau,

I was hoping on a simpler solution to use with the FileListBox :p But you're right when you say I should avoid using the VB6 controls. I'm gonna take a look at your article and see if I get somewhere with that. If not, it's just me not having enough experience :-)

Thanks all for helping out!
