    How are you putting the file names in the listbox? Either sending a LB_DIR message or using the DlgDirList() function will result in the full name being displayed.

    Smile This is what...

    I am using LB_DIR. When it's in the LB it shows up as something like this:


    (example)

    progr~1.exe

    How do I show:

    "program.exe"?

    not sure what header this is in...try stdlib.h...here's the list of headers I have at the top of the program I have this in

    #include <windows.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include "resource.h"
    #include "resrc1.h"
    #include <mmsystem.h>
    #include <process.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    #include <io.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>

    Code:
    char pathname[255]={0};
    struct _finddata_t fileinfo;
    long findhandle;
    
    				GetDlgItemText(hwnd, IDC_FOLDER, pathname, 255);
    				strcat(pathname,"*.mp3");
    
    				findhandle = _findfirst(pathname,&fileinfo);
    
    				if (findhandle==-1)
    				{
    					MessageBox(NULL, "Directory Not Found", "Error", MB_OK);
    					return FALSE;
    				}
    				SendMessage(hwndList, LB_ADDSTRING, 0, (LPARAM)fileinfo.name);
    				while(_findnext(findhandle,&fileinfo)==0)
    				{
    					SendMessage(hwndList, LB_ADDSTRING, 0, (LPARAM)fileinfo.name);
    				}

    There is no call to

    _findclose()

    to terminate the function call
