    drives

    When using a listbox, I am list all drives. I want to use LBN_DBLCLK(or whatever the dbl clk for LB is) to switch drives. I try it but it won't show the DDL_DIRECTORY when u do a double click.

    To visualize the directory tree/files, you *have* to implement the adequate code, too.

    You're expecting from your compiler to read your minds?

    Well, then wait a little bit, I'd say 100 years (taking in account the current hw-sw boom)

    Following functions might be of use:
    _chdrive, FindFirstFile and FindNextFile.

    It's not the easiest task to accomplish, though...
    What are you working on? Kinda NC-clone?

    Have fun!

    Have you looked at the LB_DIR style?
    Or DlgDirList()?
    They fill a listbox with the drives and folders ect.

    Are you using a Combobox or ListView(listbox)? (Treeview would be my choice as it will draw all the lines ect.)
    DDL_DIRECTORY is specific to Comboboxes.
