The leading file and folder selector component for the Win32 platform. It is call compatible with comdlg32.dll. Itís purpose is to provide the most powerful user-friendly file and folder selection options and file managament tools for the session.


  • You can use all your existing comdlg32.dll calls, just call the according functions respectively
  • Can give back multiple files from different folders (that comdlg32.dll canít) for example when loading multiple recent documents
  • Option to call the dialogs like normal forms (without modal mode, and users can continue their work while browsing - this is the prefered mode)
  • All window/column position/size (sorting) settings are saved for every application and/or you can choose to always use your favourite dialog settings
  • Very hiqh quality thumbnail mode (that supports much more formats then the Windows dialog, and displays audio files Taged with ID3v2 and containing SESC frame)
  • Option to cache the thumbnails on a per folder basis (like the Windows dialogís Thumbs.db just with a little bit better quality and with audio file support)
  • If bass.dll is found initialized in the process space audio thumbnails are generated from all formats that BASS supports
  • Recent document list on a per-application basis (favorite feature) available with one click
  • Recent folder list, that you can access very quickly
  • Customizable favorite folders list
  • Drag&Drop
  • Implements by far the best folder selector (with recent and favourite list)
  • Automatically decodes URL encoded filanames and underscores ("Man%20on_Mars.jpg" > "Man on Mars.jpg")
  • Viewer for pictures/images & an integrated web browser for the rest of the files (and a secondary display viewer mode for dual display setups)
  • Only one 1MB .dll - around 30MB in process space
  • Speed: The file dialogs appear for the first time in 1 to 2 seconds and ~600ms on consecutive calls on a 1.5GHz system + list update
Drawbacks: No unicode support.
    Requirements: Delphi (TOpen/SaveDialog compatible) component and C++ header included, VB, C# or any developer environment that supports the stdcall calling convention.
