I want to programatically highlight an item in a tree control. I can select it no problem using m_ctlTree.Select( hSelected, TVGN_CARET ) - this expands nodes to display the item, but it is not highlighted. I also tried SetItemState with TVIS_SELECTED but this did nothing.

Select() should normally highlight the item, but you might have the focus on some other control....try setting the focus to the tree control before calling Select()

Thanks for the speedy response - is there any way I can highlight an item without setting focus to the tree - the control is not enabled at this point.

Use the style TVS_SHOWSELALWAYS to display the selection at all times regardless of whether the control has focus.
