Q: Do the Common File Dialogs in Vista support folder selection as well?

    I saw one of the things in the Vista Guidelines is that we should use the new Common File Dialogs to open files.

    I was wondering if the new Common File Dialogs Interface is also capable of letting the user select a mix of files and folders.

    Use-cases would be:

    User needs to select all files and folders that
    -  will be backed up.
    -  will be burned on CD/DVD.
    and so on....

    That possible with the new interface?
    Or do we need to do again some serious hacking here?
    This would be bad, especially since this time we also need to provide all the search features...[6]

    Thanks in advance!
