Help with folderdialog

Hi,
I can seem to find info on using the folderdialog in vb.net. I have a simple
form with a button and a listbox. All I need is when the user selects the
button they are prompted with the folderdialog box to select a folder.When
they select the folder the contents of the folder is listed in the listbox
(only files with .zip extensions). WHERE CAN I FIND INFO ON THIS? ALL I AM
FINDING IS WATCHING A FOLDER.

Thanks

Chris,

Typing in folderbrowserdialog in the MSDN search box gives direct this

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...classtopic.asp

You have to use of course the right name for a class to search for that,

(Know that there is a bug in this class wich is repaired with SP1)

I hope this helps,

Cor

You need the Open File Dialog

I'm not aware of any system-provided "select-folder" dialog.
