Yes - just pass them like any other function.

If you look at the param list:
> hwndOwner=0 : int
> pidlRoot=None : PyIDL
> title=None : Unicode /string
> flags=0 : int
> callback : object
> Not yet supported - must be None
> callbackParam=0 : int
You will not they all have "default" values specified (except 'callback',
and it should). ie, if the function was written in Python, it would look
def SHBrowseForFolder(hwndOwner=0, pidlRoot=None, title=None, flags=0,
If you want to specify a hwnd, just pass it. Note that 'keyword' params
aren't supported, so you can't say:
You must say:
SHBrowseForFolder(0, None, "Foo")
