VB5: TreeView / ListView / ImageList

I'm looking for a good sample app that shows how to use TreeView, ListView, and Image View to create your own custom file/dir list box.  The example should utilize every feature of these controls so I see exactly how everything works.  Either post the code here, e-mail it to me at ChrisK@yankton.com, or point to a web site that has the example I seek.  Thanks...

This piece of code comes from the Enterprise edition Books Online.  I found it helpful... It works with the Biblio.mdb sample database that comes with VB 5.0


' General Declarations
Private mDbBiblio As Database ' Database variable.

Private Sub Form_Load()
      ' Open the Biblio.mdb and set the object variable
      ' to the database.
      Set mDbBiblio = DBEngine.Workspaces(0). _
      OpenDatabase("Biblio.mdb")

      ' Code to populate the TreeView control
      ' isn't shown here.
End Sub

Private Sub tvwDB_NodeClick(ByVal Node As Node)
      ' Check the Tag for "Publisher." If so, then
      ' call the MakeColumns procedure and then the
      ' GetTitles function.
      If Node.Tag = "Publisher" Then
            MakeColumns
            GetTitles Val(Node.Key)
      End If
End Sub

Private Sub MakeColumns()
      ' Clear the ColumnHeaders collection.
      lvwDB.ColumnHeaders.Clear
      ' Add four ColumnHeaders.
      lvwDB.ColumnHeaders.Add , , "Title", 2000
      lvwDB.ColumnHeaders.Add , , "Author"
      lvwDB.ColumnHeaders.Add , , "Year", 350
      lvwDB.ColumnHeaders.Add , , "ISBN"
End Sub

Private Sub GetTitles(PubID)
' Clear the old titles.
lvwDB.ListItems.Clear
' Declare object variable of type Recordset.
Dim rsTitles As Recordset
' While on this record, create a recordset using a
' query that finds only titles that have the same
' PubID. For each record in this recordset, add a
' ListItem object to the ListView control, and set
' the new object's properties with the record's
' Title, ISBN, and Author fields.
Set rsTitles = mDbBiblio.OpenRecordset _
("select * from Titles where PubID = " & PubID)

Do Until rsTitles.EOF
' Add ListItem.
            Set mItem = lvwDB.ListItems.Add()
            mItem.Text = rsTitles!TITLE
            mItem.SmallIcon = "smlBook"
            mItem.Icon = "book"      
            mItem.Key = rsTitles!ISBN
            ' Use a function to get the author and set
            ' the SubItems(1) property.
            mItem.SubItems(1) = GetAuthor(rsTitles!ISBN)
            If Not IsNull(rsTitles![Year Published]) Then
                  mItem.SubItems(2) =  _
            rsTitles![Year Published]
            End If
            mItem.SubItems(3) = rsTitles!ISBN
            rsTitles.MoveNext
Loop
End Sub

Private Function GetAuthor(ISBN)
      ' Declare DAO object variables.
      Dim rsTitleAuthor As Recordset
      Dim rsAuthors As Recordset    
      ' Set object variables to recordsets.
      Set rsTitleAuthor = mDbBiblio. _
      OpenRecordset("Title Author", dbOpenDynaset)
      Set rsAuthors = mDbBiblio. _
      OpenRecordset("Authors", dbOpenDynaset)
      ' Create query string.
      Dim strQuery As String
      strQuery = "ISBN = " & "'" & ISBN & "'"
      rsTitleAuthor.FindFirst strQuery
      ' If there is no author, return "n/a."
      ' Otherwise, return the name of the author.

      If rsTitleAuthor.NoMatch Then
            GetAuthor = "n/a"
            Exit Function
      Else
            ' Presume we have found the right recordset.
            ' Then reset the string query with Au_ID
            ' field value and search "Authors" table.
            strQuery = "Au_ID = " & rsTitleAuthor!AU_ID
            rsAuthors.FindFirst strQuery
            ' Return the name of the author from the Author
            ' field.
            GetAuthor = rsAuthors!Author
      End If
End Function

I've got biblio.mdb and tried setting up the forms but it's not working.  Please send me this example in a vb form/project via e-mail.  Send to ChrisK@yankton.com

OK, I just found the project under the vb5 samples that uses biblio.mdb with treeview...unfortunetly it doesn't help me out much.  I need an example that uses file listings, not information out of a database.  The whole goal here is to emulate the drive/dir/file list boxes so I can customize them with icons and other things.
