There's no need for 1.1. There are functions CoTaskMemAlloc and
CoTaskMemFree in WinAPI. According to MSDN first of them "Allocates a
block of task memory in the same way that IMalloc::Alloc does". I wrote
a unit with implementation of SelectDirectoryProc (using
SHBrowseForFolder function):
and simple test program:
and all seems to work OK.
I wanted to implement TSelectDirectoryDialog in Win32 interface but I
can't do it now (I'm going on a trip right now). Maybe you will do this
using this unit?
