I want to put an item in a CTreeCtrl by pressing a button, I tried by declaring the parent item in the button but the parent Item is redefined each time and in the tree the parent item is repeted each time with the new item I created...

  Use the STRUCT

typedef struct _TV_INSERTSTRUCT {
    HTREEITEM hParent;       // Node to add child too
    HTREEITEM hInsertAfter;  // Child node data
    TV_ITEM   item;  

in the function


Hope this helps
