FileDialogs: Override display text for CustomPlaces
It appears that the display string is the last element of the path, but this can cause potential confusion when the paths are very different, but the last folder is identical. Take for example "C:\Users\Public\Documents" and "C:\Users\<user_name>\Documents". Each of these will be displayed as "Documents" in the final UI, even though the first is probably more recognizable as "Common Documents" or "Public Documents". The icon appears to be different for each, but that's not enough to distinguish them enough without first browsing the path.

We agree with you and we approve such feature request. Currently you add strings in CustomPlaces list pointing to existing folders in the file system. We could extend our API with new way of setting the custom places and / or new way of creating wrappers of FileSystemInfo objects. The wrappers could contain Tag or Text properties that could be bound to various controls in the Dialogs UI - breadcrumb, treeview, autocomplete boxes etc.
