System Drives Drowser

Sample Image - DriveBrowser.gif


I developed this project as a learning experience after seeing such a GUI on some FTP Shareware Programs; the Icons and File Types unfortunately have been hardcoded in the project, unlike the ones available on Windows Explorer. The Icons are a part of the project and not picked up from the Windows Operating System. This project uses a ListView to display all the drives (including CD Drive) on the Computer System


This project has the following features

  • Displays all Drives on the Computer System
  • Allows sorting of columns (by clicking on the Column Header)
  • Allows entering a folder by clicking on the Closed Folder Icon
  • Allows Moving backwards by clicking on the UP arrow
  • Displays the currently selected folder on the Statusbar
  • Displays the total no. of files and folders within a folder on the Statusbar
  • At startup moves to the folder that was last selected at time of closedown of the previous session (*)
  • Starts the appropriate program when you double-click on a file (e.g.. Notepad for txt file) (*)

    * Incorporated based on user suggestions on some other site
