FileSelectFolder.

Thanks for your reply Richard! i have given try with this function already. This function will help you only to search the folders in the mapped drive or from the machine not from the network drive...i will attach one screen shot which will show how i am thinking the folder search should be...

So you're attempting to look for something that still has a network path like \\computer\folder?

I don't know of any standard way to do that. You'll have to make your own I believe.

I have seen this where it uses the open file dialog, but you select a folder instead of a file. I am running in to the same issue, and it would be nice to use that to browse to a folder on another computer.

Finall find a way how to bring that option. :unsure:

$var = FileSelectFolder("Choose a folder.", "",5,"")
