    Resolved [RESOLVED] Drive1.Drive

    Hi
    How do I put ''Network connections'' in to Drive1 list box.
    From msdn
    Drive Property


    Returns or sets the selected drive atrun time. Not available atdesign time.

    Syntax

    object.Drive [= drive]

    The Drive property syntax has these parts:

    Part Description
    Object Anobject expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.
    Drive Astring expression that specifies the selected drive.


    Remarks

    The valid drives for the Drive property include all drives present in or connected to the system when the control is created or refreshed at run time. The default setting of the Drive property is the current drive.

    When reading this property setting, the selected drive is returned in one of the following formats:

    Floppy disks — "a:" or "b:", and so on


    Fixed media — "c: [volume id]"


    Network connections — "x: \\server\share"
    When setting this property:

    Only the first character of the string is significant (the string isn't case-sensitive).


    Changing the setting for the Drive property invokes a Change event.


    Selecting a drive that isn't present causes an error.


    Setting this property also regenerates the drive list, providing a way in code to track network connections added since the control was created.
    If the FileName property is set to a qualified network path without a drive designation, the value of the Drive property is a zero-length string (""), no drive is selected, and the ListIndex property setting is –1.

    Note The Drive property returns a different value from the ListIndex property, which returns the list box selection.
    But nun of the ''Network connections'' in ''My Network Places'' lodes in to Drive1 list box

    I dont think the DriveList control can show network connections. Are you sure you are not reading an article applicable to VB.Net and not VB6?

    I added the article.
    Yes it's from ''MSDN Library Visual Studio 6.0''.

    It solved the problem.
    Thank you RhinoBull.
