in reply to Re: Tk and native controls do not play along on Windows
in thread Tk and native controls do not play along on Windows

because I would loose functionality such as the ability to 'make a new folder' available from within the MFC control,shown here pic2

Besides the specific control,I would like to leverage possible alternate or more rich functionality from other native controls

    Have you considered using Wx?

    Wx::DirDialog will give you the native style directory chooser, with the new folder option.
      this looks great.But I don't know how easy would be to port my existing code (the Tk related code takes ~590 lines) to this toolkit. But I will definitely start looking at it in future projects

        I imagine it wouldn't be a quick move from Tk to Wx for that length of program. BrowserUK's approach does look like the winner for you.
