I'm creating a tool that needs to browse for folders into TFS. In other words, I want the user to be able to pick a folder within projects in TFS.
Does anybody know how to do it?

This is certainly possible. For example you could achieve this by leveraging the Team foundation server command line tools which basically allow you to do everything without VisualStudio.

The only problem is that my tool will be used as an add-in for visual studio. Can the Team Foundation Server Command line tools help me achieve my purpose? I want to use something like the FolderBrowserDialog class that enables you to interact with folders; in my case I would like to be able to browse in the Team Queries folder located in TFS

You are going to need to create a custom Folder Dialog box and use the TFS API to interact with TFS.

Refer to the blog post TFS API Part 30 – Working With Queries by Shai Raiten[^]
