My previous question was not worded correctly.

How do I find the first entry for a specific key in a directory using a vb.net control?
I think it's the "OpenFileDialog" control but I can't get it to work.
For example,
Directory Entries:
aafile1.txt
aafile2.txt
aafile3.txt
bbfile1.txt
bbfile2.txt
ccfile1.txt
ccfile2.txt
ccfile3.txt
I want to find bbfile1.txt.
I know the entires begin with "bb", but I don't know the exact names of the files.
Thank you.
