Retrieving Browseforfolder() Files

Retrieving Browseforfolder() Files

Question:
I’m using a function named Browseforfolders() that uses the following code:

Private Declare Function SHBrowseForFolder Lib "shell32.dll" _Alias "SHBrowseForFolderA" (lpBrowseInfo As BROWSEINFO) As Long

and the declaration of this constant:

Private Const BIF_RETURNONLYFSDIRS = &H1

What I would like to know is, if using this function, is it also possible to obtain the files from the directory?Best regards,[email protected] Basic Software developer

Answer:
If you want to pick a file, you should use the common dialog control or the equivalent API calls.

The SHBrowserForFolder API call is not designed to show file information.
