Is there a "browse" dialog? not to be confused with Open File

P: n/a
Hello,

Is there any kind of Browse dialog available? I currently use an Open File
dialog which is great for selecting files, but sucks (it's confusing) when
you're trying to set a directory (since you have to select a file for a
value to register). Is there any alternative?

Thanks!

I didn't follow the link but for the archives, the API calls
SHBrowseForFolder and SHGetPathFromIDList can be used together to get
user-selected directory path from a browse dialog.
