Treeview control & multiple selection


i've made a program that uses a treeview control to view some data and do some drag&drop with it.

but now i want to allow a user to make a multiple selection, and then do something with the selection.. BUT
i don't know how.. not a single example i have do this.
they all use a single selection. I can't even get the treeview to ALLOW a multiple selection.. ie shift-click doesn't select mote than one.

can someone help me with my problem? would be great!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is the only answer I could find.  The Class Viewer in MSVC 5 does have a multiselection treeview, but it doesn't use the SysTreeView32 control.

SAMPLE: How to Simulate Multiple-Selection TreeView Control

Last reviewed: February 15, 1996
Article ID: Q125587  

The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Win32 Application Programming Interface (API) included with:

    - Microsoft Windows NT version 3.51
    - Microsoft Windows 95 version 4.0

The TVWSTATE sample demonstrates how to simulate a multiple-selection TreeView control. The Windows 95 TreeView control does not support multiple selection. If you want a multiple-selection TreeView, you can use state images to simulate it in your application.

The TVWSTATE sample accomplishes this by using a checkbox type of state image to indicate that the item is selected or cleared (de-selected). These checkboxes will retain their state even if the TreeView loses focus.
