If I remember correctly, you rename the folder that you want hidden using a period before the name of the folder i.e. .appfolder

Thank you for reply dear.
I did above thing but its not working. Can you elaborate pro-grammatically how can i do this. Because at run time how can i change name of the folder with "." prefix.
