Get C:\ info in the treelistview

Posted on 1998-10-08
Last Modified: 2013-12-26
I followed AllanC_Jr's advice to run a "VB Application Wizard" and choose Explorer Style and it worked. Now I want to know what to write so the information on the harddrive appear in the "TreelistView" Then I want to link the "treelistView" with the "ListView" what are the codes?

Description: I want to be able to doubleclick on the driver C: in the "Treelistview" (the directories appears), when I doubleclick on one directory the contents appears in the "ListView"

If you can solve this for my, please do. It will mean a lot to me.

Private Sub Tree_Click()
   call fsb_GetTree(Tree.SelectedItem)
End Sub

Private Sub fsb_GetTree(as_Path As String)
Dim ls_DirName As String
On Error Resume Next
ListView1.Arrange = lvwAutoLeft
ls_DirName = Dir(as_Path, vbDirectory)
Do While ls_DirName <> ""
   If ls_DirName <> "." And ls_DirName <> ".." Then
      If (GetAttr(as_Path & ls_DirName) And vbDirectory) = vbDirectory Then
         ListView1.ListItems.Add Text:=ls_DirName
      End If
   End If
   ls_DirName = Dir

End Sub

How about this one:
Keep the Node.FullPath to a variable in the TreeView's NodeClick event, in the TreeView's DblClick event, use this variable  and the Dir to get all the contents under the directory , then what you need is add them to the listview.

Good luck!
