I have never done this but I would believe there are likely controls already built that you could buy. However, in Windows 7 (and possibly other windows OSs) there is a built-in preview pane, at least in the Word 2010 open file dialog.

I think you want to open the file for preview using process?

Process.Start("notepad.exe", @"F:\yourfile.txt");

This will open yourfile.txt in NotePad. You can edit that to whatever application you want to open for preview.
