When you open a folder in Windows and the contents are displayed what type of control are the contents displayed in.

ie Open folder C:/data/WorkFiles

You get the list of files eg .txt, .docx, .pdf, .xml

Is it possible to catch this and dock it in a container.

Hope this is not too difficult a question.

Do you mean an OpenFileDialog?

I think it's akin to a ListView, but there is no automatic "explorer" control you can use out of the box.

Yes I am aware of OpenFileDialog. What I need to know and I think Ketsuekiame has given me the answer. I have researched this control (ListView)now. What was putting me in doubt was that in ASP.Net examples they seem to use the gridview mostly.
