FilesystemTree is a control which will read the system resources and display a tree from which a user can navigate to a file or a folder...
Programmers can use this control as part of their applications to allow users to navigate to a
fileSystemTree structure, and get back the file/folder path that the user has selected.
The code is self-explanatory. Briefly, it has a
TreeView control linked to an
ImageList control. The
ImageList control is for the
TreeView to pick its icons from. To view the images in the
ImageList control, open properties of the
ImageList control and click on the ellipsis (...) next to the

TreeView control is populated with the user's selection of a file/folder. The textbox is disabled... its only for viewing. The user's selection can also be accessed by using
filesystemtree1 is an instance of the control on an application).
