If anybody knows the answer to this question, you may know the answer to this question as well,

How can you set the view to details and sorted by date?

Hi Philip,

Although I don't believe there is any built in functionality from the provided Windows classes to do what you are looking for, there is a .NET "Power Pack" available that might help you.

You can find it here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dv_vstechart/html/vbpowerpack.asp

In particular the items that drew my attention were:
  • FolderViewer. This displays directories in a hierarchical format.
  • FileViewer. This displays a list of the files in a specified directory.
Hopefully this helps, have a good one Philip!
