    Listbox-esque file browsing...

    Hi - What I need to do is add a way to have a listbox file browser open so that users can select files to add to a list.

    If you have VC7 and go to "Find in Files", and then click the "..." to the right of "Look In" - This is basically what I need to create.

    Is there an ActiveX control to do this? Do you guys have any suggestions about how I should go about doing this?

    Thanks.

    That design is quite simple. One solution is a dialog window with some edit controls, buttons, tree control, and a list control.

    Yes, but I am talking about the actual Listbox browsing functionality. Is there some sort of built-in way to navigate directories and select files in a listbox-style control?

    Or do I have to implement it?

    Correct.

    You could implement your own design, which I recommend. Otherwise, check out CodeProject code section for examples.
