Need help making nodes in VB.net 2012

I am looking to populate the folders of a windows machines' local drive (or network drive) and put check boxes in the folders that I have selected. From there I want to do run some code that I have already written to move files from the selected folders.

I have looked high and low on the web for this but I can't seem to find out how to do it. I have found this one website that sells software that allows it but I feel that it should be able to be done without the extra software.

The picture I have attached is also from that site.


The site is.

Thanks in advance.

If I understand your requirement, I don't see check boxes, but for a Windows Forms TreeView, there is the CheckBoxes control.

That link that you posted shows a custom FolderView, which extends and enhances the System.Windows.Forms.FolderBrowserDialog control, and you are looking for a freeware version that does the same thing as FolderView?

I haven't seen anything freeware, but that doesn't mean that something doesn't exist.

I have found this plugin that seems as closest as I am going to get without purchasing that software.

Also found this but I am not sure how to use it yet.

Well i would prefer check boxes but as long as I can select multiple folders and get the same results I am ok with that.  I will look at this checkboxes property that you sent me. I don't think I came across that link in my searching.
