Hello, is there a common dialog that allows for the browsing for a folder? It has to return a string containing the folder including all parent folders and driver name. Example: "c:/temp" Is that possible. I looked at GetOpenFileName and GetSaveFileName but they only allow browsing for files. I also looked at SHBrowseForFolder but that one has several drawbacks: 1. It only returns the folder name and not the parent folders and driver letter. ex: "temp" 2. You cannot create new folders in that dialog control, like you can with the GetSaveFileName control which is really handy. Can anybody help me out? I don''t want to write an entire control myself since that is a waste of time. I looked over the entire msdn but could not find anything. Thanks for any reply. Jaap Suter
