ShellBrowser Delphi Components

Native VCL Explorer Shell Controls for Delphi

Emulate the Right Pane of the Windows Explorer

Creating an explorer-like interface for your application has never been easier. Simply use the ShellBrowser Components Delphi Edition and get the real look and feel! Both components support drag and drop operations.


The TJamShellList Delphi Component displays the contents of a folder. While being highly customizable, in its default state it looks and behaves exactly like the file list in the right pane of the Windows Explorer. In addition, you have full access to the possible operations by the user.

The list can switch between the view styles Details, Small Icons, Large Icons, List, and Thumbnails. The visible shell columns in the Details view can easily be manipulated; all available columns are supported. Alternatively, custom columns can be added to fit the requirements of your application.


In the Thumbnail view, every thumbnail is loaded in its own thread to increase the performance and optimize the user experience while browsing.

The ShellListView supports both the shell context menu for elements selected in the list as well as the background context menu. Both menus can be customized to your needs. You can add own menu items, or replace the whole menu by your own. Also the execution of shell context menu entries can be intercepted and cancelled or modified.

Experience the possibilities of the TJamShellList component in our sample application.
