What are FolderBrowser Flags?

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


Flags can be used to set various Styles for the FolderBrowser Dialog. Each Style has its own behaviour and these styles can be aded or removed to get the desired style for the FolderBrowser Dialog. Look at the given snippet to apply “RestrictToSubfolders” style and to remove the “ShowTextBox” style for the FolderBrowser Dialog.


this.folderBrowser1.Style &= ~FolderBrowserStyles.RestrictToSubfolders;

this.folderBrowser1.Style |= FolderBrowserStyles.ShowTextBox;


Me.folderBrowser1.Style = Me.folderBrowser1.Style And Not FolderBrowserStyles.RestrictToSubfolders

Me.folderBrowser1.Style = Me.folderBrowser1.Style Or FolderBrowserStyles.ShowTextBox
