What is the WinForms FolderBrowser Flags?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: FolderBrowser


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
