I am wanting to make a menu application. I want to duplicate the start -- all programs section of Windows.
so, when the user clicks on the start button of my program, and goes to All Programs - there is a list of all the program folders, sub folders, and programs - EXACTLY as they see through Windows, for thier specific user.
I began using the menu item, and making the all programs selection open a form with a list box. The list box is populated with IO.DirectoryInfo and IO.FileInfo - but looks terrible, and I really want this to look good + I want to begin with the current user, instead of the "Documents and Settings\" path so they can choose thier user.
Any kind of direction or help would be greatly appreciated. This is a personal project that I've been wanting to do for a while, but my lack of time and knowledge keeps holding me back.
I'm using vb .net 2003. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
