How can I make a windows explorer type tree control.  I want it to populate with only directories.  I used the FTPTREE example but for some reason it will only go two directories deep....  weird.

I need a control to browse directories...

any help?

Derive from CTreeCtrl - class wiz can generate a skeleton class for you.

add a init function take the directory to start from

Use FindFirstFile/FindNextFile to scan for file/directory names) - don't forget this will spot the directory entries "." and ".." in directories (the current directory and the link to the one above) - and you may not want to show these.

When you add responses to tree control notifications (e.g. you might only scan directory names when the user expands a brank) use the reflected notifications (the ones with = before them in the class wiz - see TN062).

That's it.

To use simply place a tree control on a dialog or whatever, and instead of link a CTreeCtrl member variable, add a CDerivedTreeCtrl (or whatever name you gave it), and init it (e.g. during OnInitDialog).
