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!

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.

Download TVWSTATE.EXE, a self-extracting file, from the Microsoft Software Library (MSL) on the following services:

Microsoft Download Service (MSDL)

      Dial (206) 936-6735 to connect to MSDL

Internet (anonymous FTP)

      ftp ftp.microsoft.com
      Change to the SOFTLIB\MSLFILES directory
      Get TVWSTATE.EXE (size: 49318 bytes)
