What is FolderBrowserCallback event?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: FolderBrowser |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


The FolderBrowserCallback event is a validation event which is the functional equivalent of Win32 BrowseCallbackProc callback function. Using this event, you can get the events performed by the FolderBrowser Dialog and the selected directory path.


private void folderBrowser1_FolderBrowserCallback(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.FolderBrowserCallbackEventArgs e)


  this.statusBar1.Text = String.Format("Event: {0}, Path: {1}", e.FolderBrowserMessage, e.Path);

  if (e.FolderBrowserMessage == FolderBrowserMessage.ValidateFailed)


   e.Dismiss = e.Path != "NONE";




Private Sub folderBrowser1_FolderBrowserCallback(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.FolderBrowserCallbackEventArgs)

 Me.statusBar1.Text = String.Format("Event: {0}, Path: {1}", e.FolderBrowserMessage, e.Path)

 If e.FolderBrowserMessage = FolderBrowserMessage.ValidateFailed Then

  e.Dismiss = e.Path <> "NONE"

 End If

End Sub
