Hi Experts,

I'm trying to load filenames of apps from a dir into a LV and when click... I want it to open the dir... not the file.

I used this code to load filenames in DIr
Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        For Each fileName As String In IO.Directory.GetFiles("\\fs1gbn1fs005\uu-it-ops-service-desk-only$\Software")
            '  ImageList1.Images.Add(Icon.ExtractAssociatedIcon(fileName))
            ListView1.Items.Add(IO.Path.GetFileName(fileName), ImageList1.Images.Count - 1)
        Next
    End Sub
THIS WORKS... but when clicking on the item in LV..
Private Sub ListView1_MouseDoubleClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles ListView1.MouseDoubleClick
For Each file As ListViewItem In ListView1.Items
Dim filePath As String = file.SubItems(0).Text & "\" & file.Text
If file.Selected = True Then
Process.Start(filePath)
End If
Next
End Sub
This bit does work... & i know its for launching the app... I want to open the dir.
Thanks,
Roberto
