Hi, i use the following code to ask user for folder:
FolderBrowserDialog* fb = new FolderBrowserDialog();
System::Windows::Forms::DialogResult res = fb->ShowDialog();

if (fb != DialogResult::OK)
   return;

And this is what i get: Well, as you can see it doesn't work. Maybe someone had similar problem ? And btw, i checked the msdn... [Edited by - Jnz86 on July 19, 2005 8:43:58 AM]

I remember seeing this before. It's a known bug.

Unfortuneately for you, I don't remember the whereabouts, but I'm sure you'll find the answer quite easily with google.

The Folderbrowser dialog is a very special dialog for two reasons:
1. It needs special security permissions. So if your code is not running under Full trust (use caspol.exe -rsg to find out about that) you might need to assign the file/folderbrowser permission to your app.
2. It is an ActiveX (COM) control that needs the [STAThread] attribute on the main thread. (Did you remove that???)

Cheers

my WinMain looks like this:


System::Threading::Thread::CurrentThread->ApartmentState = System::Threading::ApartmentState::STA;

Application::Run(new ptIDE::FormIDE());



so if i understood well the STAThread attribute is OK, right? (Sorry I am new to .NET)
