Ken,

Thanks for your input. I am aware of this. I am looking to replicate the feature in a combo box, without the dialogue, as implemented in IE's File/Open, the Explorer address bar or the Update Driver window. In general it seems that this control or functionality exists somewhere in the bowels of one Windows API or another; whether or not I can get to it from VFP, is the real question.

-hh
