New dialog to browse folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • I noticed Visual Studio uses a new dialog to browse folders, it looks now similar to the dialog used to browse files, how do I use this in my .NET application?

  • My mistake, it is just like the Open File Dialog control in VS 2010. This is also in the toolbox for a Windows Forms form.

  • If you make a new Windows Forms project there is a toolbox item called the FolderBrowserDialog. Is this the control you were looking for?

    I saw this in the toolbox on VS 2010 RC.

  • The new folder browser is like the file browser, take a look in Visual Studio 2010 at:

    Options > Projects and Solutions > Project Location
