WPF does not contain a
FileBrowserDialog. Nevertheless, I needed them in a WPF application.
Searching the web, I found several approaches. One published on GitHub (https://github.com/tillias/wpFolderPicker) implements a new control for folder browsing. But I wanted a “cheap” solution. And found the starting point here: WPF OpenFileDialog and FolderBrowserDialog.
Ben suggested to add
WindowsFormsIntegration to the project’s references. That did not worked for me (.NET 4.5, VS 2012). But adding
System.Windows.Forms to the references and
using statements made the
FileBrowserDialog working in my WPF application 🙂
