This project has moved. For the latest updates, please go here.
This project contains the source code for an implementation of controls that are related to browsing files within an existing application. Go to: to see the controls in full action (see Explorer tool window) or check details and screenshots in the Documentation section.

This project contains:
  • A path combobox control that lets you:
    • enter a path (with copy and paste) or
    • pick drives from a drop down list of currently recognized drives.
  • A folder browser control to browse folder in your file system
  • A folder, file listview control to list items within a given folder
  • A folder bookmark drop down list control to bookmark and quick access recently visited folders
  • A forward and backward history control for navigated back and forth between recently visited folders
  • A set of folder short-cut buttons to navigate directly to a folder.


  • Universal Control (UNC) network share paths are not supported
  • Support for drives with exchangeable media (CD-ROM, USB Drive) is limited. Everything should work as expected but exchanging the media will not lead to updating displayed folder and file entries.
