Checking if a folder(not a file) is already open to view

Posted 04 September 2010 - 08:46 AM

Hey guys! I have a program that creates a file and exports to a pre-selected folder on my network. What I'd like to do is find out if the user already has the folder open and if not, then open it. I can open the folder, and I tried some FileExists but I haven't had any luck. Is there a function in VB I can research that might work for this? I don't have any code pertinant to this, as of yet, so there isn't really much for me to put here.

As always , thanks in advance!!

Just to clarify...

When you say you want to open the folder, do you mean so that the user on the network machine sees it on their screen (i.e.: opening a remote folder), or you just want to open it on the machine that the program is running on?
