Directory and file list box

P: n/a
Under visual basic there used to be a directory tree list box and file list box controls that could be placed on a form and linked together.

Is there anything similar for C# or VB.net, I couldn't find anything...

Hi Patrick,

Welcome to MSDN newsgroup.
As for the FileListBox, DriveListBox controls in VB you mentioned, the
..net's winform buildin controls library dosn't involve them. So if you need
the similiar functions as those controls in VB6, we can use the .net's
ListBox winform control together with the System.IO apis to acheive it.

If there is any other questions, please feel free to post here.

Thanks,

There is the much nicer OpenFileDialog, SaveFileDialog, FolderBrowserDialog
(Net1.1 + sp1)

For the ones you ask you can load the VB powerpack where in are the controls
FileViewer and FolderViewer (.Net controls so as well for C#)

Thanks for the input, I will have to look into the .net version further. I
used the old vb6 compatablity library reference and that seemed to work,
that had the controls I was looking for, however the ones here look like
they have better functionality...

Thanks again,
Patrick
