The folder browser component provides a convenient and easy way to use an object-oriented wrapper for the Win32 Shell Folder Browser API.
This class completely abstracts the intricacies involved in using the various complex shell API functions, structures, and callback routines required for working with the Windows Folder Selection Dialog, and allows Windows Forms developers to work with .NET-centric properties, events, and methods.
The folder browser’s target location can be set to any desired location by the user. The StartLocation property provides various options to specify the location of the root folder where browsing will begin.
The folder browser dialog can be displayed in various styles using the Style property of the folder browser. The folder browser provides options to display templates and create folders using the Make New Folder button.
The folder browser includes a text box control in the folder browser dialog that allows the user to type any text. The text box is capable of auto completing the text entered.
