The ShellListView and ShellTreeView controls imitate the corresponding parts of the Windows Explorer, including correct icons with overlays, the Explorer context menu, thumbnails, details, virtual folders and shell extensions. Beyond the normal Explorer look & feel, these controls support file filters, check boxes and allow the customization of many aspects of their appearance and behavior.
The invisible ShellControlConnector control allows you to synchronize multiple shell controls with just one line of code. An additional thumbnail control displays previews of the selected files in any size. An interesting sample project and a detailed help file are included.
