hooking into windows explorer
Don't know much about Windows programming, but I was wondering if it would be hard to write a tabbed windows explorer. Basically I'm wondering if it possible to use the windows explorer interface as a control, analogous to how you can use IE as a control.
SetParent() is your friend. :)
Not exactly an answer, but Total commander supports tabbed browsing :) Quite neat. My only problem is that I can't keep track of all the tabs I had open and forgot to close :)
But why? When you have a fantastic free explorer replacement which does all that and more...
You can do this kind of thing easily in VB. Create an ActiveX (custom) control containing the constituent controls and all the logic and event code.
