MAX explorer look-a-like?

I am trying to make an explorer (just like win explorer or MAX explorer)
I have made a simular in VB 6.0, but I can't find the controlls in LabVIEW
-DirListBox, -DriveListBox)
Does anybody know where I can find these controlls, or how I can make an
explorer?

If these are true ActiveX controls, you can use them directly in LV. LV is
an ActiveX container, meaning that it can contain or host ActiveX controls.
Depending on how your ActiveX stuff was written, you can possible use much
more of it in LV if you build your previous project into a control.

Another option is to go more native and use the File I/O functions in
conjunction with LV lisboxes, rings, strings, etc.

Its up to you.
