DriveListBox Class

Enables a user to select a valid disk drive at run time.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.dll)

public class DriveListBox : ComboBox

Use this control to display a list of all the valid drives in a user's system. You can create dialog boxes that enable the user to open a file from a list of files on a disk in any available drive.

If you also display the DirListBox and FileListBox controls, you can write code to synchronize them with the DriveListBox control and with each other.

NoteNote:

Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic 2008. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
