Visual Basic/path of the folder


i have created an application where if i rightclick on a folder an option appears where my form gets loaded.
i need to get the full path of this folder in my application.
i tried


but it only shows the opened directory path and not the path of the selected item in it.

Without seeing your code, this is difficult to answer as I don't know how your list of folders was created, nor what your right-click is communicating with.

However, if your folder list is custom and not the OOB version of browse, then you should have that information available to you as you created the folders.  If not, when you create the nodes to represent the folders, you can set the TAG property with the full folder path in question.

String manipulation, Database access and usage, Class creation, and encapsulation are my strong suits. Active X Controls and DLL`s also. Although I don`t deal with Crystal - frankly because I don`t like it; I prefer to do things manually.
