    Using windows explorer in my C# form

    I have a need to use windows explorer, or an equivalent if there is one,
    within my app.
    I am currently using a treeview to display contents of a database.
    I wish to be able to use explorer to locate the database i will be using in
    the treeview, but, i would like explorer to occupy the same space as the
    treeview whilst the treeview is inactive, i.e. no active database chosen.
    If that is not possible and i must use the normal explorer option, how do I
    launch explorer and retrieve my path from it?

    TIA

    As far as I know, there is no such control as "Windows Explorer", but what
    you can probably do is create your own "Windows Explorer" control with the
    basic set of cuntionality that you need. You can have a look at the
    following article which uses a ListView and TreeView to create a Explorer
    Control.

    I hope that this would help.
