FolderBrowserDialog vs VisualStudio folder dialog RRS feed

  • Question

  • I see that Visual Studio doesn't use the standard FolderBrowserDialog for selecting the project OutputPath, in my extension I need to select a folder and for sake of consistency I will prefer to use the same dialog that Visual Studio is using, does anybody know if the dialog is available to be used by extensions?

  • I haven't verified this, but try IVsUIShell.GetDirectoryViaBrowseDlg Method

  • I have finally found time to test this and it works as suggested.
