How do I navigate up the path from a child node.  I need to get the path from the root of the tree to the farthest child, but I need to start at the child.

This is the second time I've asked this question.  I guess I wasn't clear the first time.

By farthest, do you mean the deepest child??  The one with the
longest search path??  I don't see how you'll be able to search for the child with the deepest search path starting at an arbitrary child.  If you start at the root, sure.

I suppose one could write an algorithm to start at all leaf nodes then progress to the root, finally giving you the leaf node (child) that had the longest path.

If I understand your question right, this should be what you're looking for.

This is a simple form with a TTreeView called 'TV' and a TLabel called 'Label1'

Add the following code to TV.OnClick...

procedure TForm1.TVClick(Sender: TObject);
var
  ANode : TTreeNode;
  s     : STRING;
begin
  // Set ANode to the starting node
  ANode := TV.Selected;

  // Set the last "Subdirectory" of the path
  s := ANode.Text;
  repeat
    // Get the parent node
    ANode := ANode.Parent;
   
    // If not nil, insert in beginning of path
    if ANode <> nil then s := ANode.Text + '\' + s;

  until ANode = nil;

  Label1.Caption := s;
end;

I don't know if this will work so its hard to grade.  Thanks for the help.  I didn't see parent in the treenodes property.  How did you figure out it had a parent property?
Thanks again.

Great answer.  I would like to pay for this information.  The answer is simple but I am learning the object part of Delphi and am struggling.  It helped a lot.

Try it out first, and then grade it. That's what you ought to do for all questions. If not, I could just give you a nonsense answer, and after grading it there's nothing you can do about it.

I looked in the source ;)
