ExplorerBrowser vs. ShelllListView

Question / Problem

What is the difference between the ShellListView and ExplorerBrowser?

Answer / Solution

When configuring ExplorerBrowser to only include the FolderView, it looks much like the ShellListView.

ExplorerBrowser wraps a Windows system component, and thus it will look exactly like Windows File Explorer.The ShellListView on the other hand derives a Windows Forms ListView control, that tries to resemble Windows File Explorer as much as possible. While it misses some aspects of this, it can on the other hand be customized more widely visually and functionally.
