The CCRP BrowseDialog control provides Visual Basic developers the means to easily utilize the Windows Browse for Folders dialog. For more full-featured versions, see the BrowseDialog Server for VB5 or BrowseDialog Server for VB6 pages.

Browse For Folders Dialog

The BrowseDialog control offers many features, including:

  • Any folder can be specified as the root, allowing only it and its subfolders appear in the dialog box.
  • The specified root folder, or any of one its subfolders, can be pre-selected when the dialog box is initially shown.
  • Descriptive text can be displayed in either of the dialog box's two prompt labels.
  • While the BrowseDialog is shown, the currently selected folder's path or "display name", or any other descriptive text, can be dynamically displayed in the second prompt window.
  • Provides the developer full control in determining what is an allowable folder selection.
  • Once the dialog box is closed by the user, various attributes of the selected folder can be returned, including the folder's path, display name and large or small icon.
  • Includes a fully functional example application demonstrating all available methods and properties, as well as a comprehensive help file.

And best of all, its free!

Please note: The Browse Dialog Server supersedes this control. Although the Browse Dialog OCX  will remain available for download, no further updates to the OCX will be made.
