I don't know if it's available in the activex control, but you can use
API calls to reference the SHBrowseForFolder function in shell32.dll. 
There are many examples of usage on the web which you can find if you
google for that function name.  Also, if you go to the Downloads area of
my website (http://puma.agron.ksu.edu/~sgsax/), my ChopIt demo includes
code for using it.

Good luck!
