I need to draw a tree using delphi, I guess the best component available is Toutline??

Anyhow, I can draw nodes on this tree easily using
Outline1.Insert(0,'a node');

But I can't seem to figure out how to draw a children for that node...

ie how do i draw this (help me with the missing code)

-a node
-another node
 -child of another node
  -child of the child

Outline1.Insert(0,'a node');
Outline1.Insert(1,'another node');
???
???

Also, how can I remove nodes/children..

This is probably a very easy question... so thanks for taking the time to answer it...

By the way, if there is another component that may be better suited for drawing trees (I need a tree of text not files) please let me know...

No I'm using Delphi 3... and I just found TtreeView (much better component to use!), and that's pretty well documented, so I answered my own questions...Thanks anyways
