Hello Wang,

If I understood you correctly, you have some custom places defined in the dialog and you want an API that allows you to get and set the selection in the custom places? Can you confirm that this is your case? If not, can you provide some more details on the topic?

Hello Wang,

The custom places pane of the file dialogs is not selectable itself. This means that it doesn't track a selected item. Instead, when you click an item from the custom places, the dialog is navigated to the corresponding directory. This said, you can get the currently selected directory and match it with the ones in the custom places collection. If the collection contains it, so a custom place is selected. The same is valid for the opposite direction - get a path from the custom places and open it in the dialog.

To achieve this, you can set the InitialDirectory property of the file dialog just before the ShowDialog() call. I hope this helps.
