BrowseFolder API - Start at default folder/subfolder


D

Dale Fye

I've been using the BrowseFolder API for quite a while, and one of the things
that I have not figured out is how to open the window to a specified folder.

I have an application that I use to "archive" documents from a network to a
server, so that only a couple of individuals have direct access to them.
When I run my application, I use the GetOpenFileName API to select the file I
want to archive, and I use the BrowseFolder API to identify where I want to
"archive" it. What I would like to do is pass a default folder to the
BrowseFolder API so that I can start at a previously defined default folder
and drill down from there, rather than having to start at the top of the
structure.

Any ideas how to do this?
