DXOpenFolderDialogService Class

Represents a dialog box that allows end-users to specify folder names for one or more folders to open.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Dialogs
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Dialogs.v19.2.dll

Expanded Syntax

Expanded Remarks

The DXOpenFolderDialogService provides the standard open folder dialog functionality and supports DevExpress theming mechanism that allows your applications to look consistent.

The DXOpenFolderDialogService allows you to browse, create, and select folders in the File System by using the DXOpenFileDialog (see DXOpenFileDialog) dialog.

The DXOpenFolderDialogService implements the DevExpress.Mvvm.IOpenFolderDialogService interface.

How to Use

To use the DXOpenFolderDialogService service, attach it to your View via the Interaction.Behaviors collection.

Then, access the attached service by using one of approaches described in Services in POCO objects or Services in ViewModelBase descendants topics and invoke its IOpenFolderDialogService.ShowDialog method to show the open folder dialog.

To select a folder, a user should select an item and press the Open button. When the dialog box is closed and the ShowDialog returns true, the DevExpress.Mvvm.IOpenFolderDialogService.Folder will be set to an IFolderInfo object that contains information about the selected folder.

If you want to provide the user the ability to select a file instead of a folder, use the DXOpenFileDialogService instead.
