    GetOpenFileName function for dir's?

    Hey, i need a function similar to GetOpenFileName except for dir's. An example would be like in Winamp, you can choose to add a file / dir / url. when you go to file i believe it uses the GetOpenFileName function, but i'm not sure what it uses for when you want to add an entire dir. thanks

    awesome works like a charm.

    now what i want to do is basically get a list similar to what i'd get from: dir /s /b AND dir /s /b *.ext
    anyone know how to do this without using the console commands?
