I''ve got the thing working and can get the file name when the user selects a folder from the tree and presses OK. But how do I get the file name when the user types it in the edit box and presses OK? Seems just to pass back a empty string.

This is what I got:

LPITEMIDLIST ItemID;

bi.hwndOwner = hWnd;
bi.pidlRoot = NULL;
bi.pszDisplayName = szName;
bi.lpszTitle = NULL;
bi.ulFlags = BIF_EDITBOX;
bi.lpfn = BrowseCallbackProc;
bi.lParam = (LPARAM)pathname;
bi.iImage = 0;

if (ItemID = SHBrowseForFolder(&bi))
{
SHGetPathFromIDList(ItemID, dirpath);

return dirpath;
}
else
{
return NULL;
}

It works fine if you select from the directory tree. Just nothing if you type in a path.
