Why cant you add "Make New folder" button, Title input and input to replace "select A folder" label in the present Folderdialog box.

do you ask for the standard "File Dialog" function of LabView?
There's a "prompt" input for the titel and a "button label" to replace the "select this folder" text of the button.
And when you use "native file dialogs" (Options->Environment) then you also have a "new folder" button Atleast on Windows - but you didn't mention your LV version nor the OS...

The browser.dll doesn't have these options such as to enter title name, enter discription, make new folder and able to edit ok button Presently (copy button in figure)
All i want is folder dialog as it is in attached picture

to get the "Make New Folder" Button, you can use the example from this link.
Change the "ulFlags" value to x40.
To get full acces to this function, you can write a wrapper dll.

I got this from someone else and modified it a little. It has the options everyone is asking for and many more (i.e. make folder button, choose you own root directory etc.).
The one thing I wish it had was a default starting directory. I mean, have the root be "C:\", for example, but have it default to something like "C:\temp" within the directory tree control.

Is there a way to make this window modal?

You are replying to a 6+ month old thread casually mentioning "this window". I make a wild assumtion that you are talking about the VI posted above. 😄
Go to "VI properties...windows appearance...advanced..." and look in near the upper right corner. All clear? 😉

It seemed to make sense to put it here since this is where the vi was originally posted. I can start a new thread if you like.
The vi uses the windows browse folders shell dll, so changing the vi propertires doesn't do anything because it is just a wrapper.

Ah, thanks for clarifying what "this window" is. 😄
Post is fine here, because it is directly related.
