Thanks for the reply. I'm really looking for a programming component that presents the user with a dialog that looks like FileOpen or FileSave but allows folder selection. For some reason a decision was made to prevent the Windows dialogs from being subclassed. Otherwise you could just start with that and add enhancements using any number of programming languages.
The only one I saw that actually looked like what I'm talking about was a commercial control and they wanted like $300 for it. Kind of a lot to pay when you're likely to be giving away the application that uses it.
Hard to believe but even with all the Aero exploding windows and effects the old ShBrowseForFolder() is still all we have.
