DirListBox Control Changes in Visual Basic .NET

The Visual Basic 6.0 DirListBox control was typically used to display directories and paths in a File Open or Save dialog box. Visual Basic .NET has no equivalent for the DirListBox control; however, the Windows Forms OpenFileDialog and SaveFileDialog controls provide the ability to create standard Windows dialog boxes for working with files.

During upgrade, any existing DirListBox controls are upgraded to the VB6.DirListBox control that is provided as a part of the compatibility library (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility).
