Open a folder in dropboc desktop app via external application

Open a folder in dropboc desktop app via external application

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to adapt a C# winform tool we use at my office to use the new dropbox desktop app.  The app searches our client folders and opens a folder in windows explorer. (The exact command is)

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(path)


Does anyone have suggestions on how to make this app open a folder in the dropbox desktop app instead?

Dropbox doesn't offer an interface for interacting with the new Dropbox desktop app like this, such as to open a specific folder in it, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though.
