How populate listbox with file names of picture files in a computer directory

SteveL13 asked
Last Modified: 2015-07-07
On a form's subform I have a textbox named "txtSiteImageFolder".  The textbox contains the path to a specific folder on the computer.  For example, "C:\CompanyName\ClientName\"

Into that folder the user drag 'n drops picture files.  Then also on the subform is a listbox named "listpicturefiles".  I need to have the listbox list all of the picture files in "C:\CompanyName\ClientName\" and refresh itself every time the user places another file in the folder or removes a files from the folder.

Can this be done?  How?
