TreeView as ActiveX Control in C++

If I try to add the Microsoft TreeView control into a C++ project using the Component Gallery, several different wrapper files are generated even though it's only one component.  I'm used to using CreateControl() with one wrapper file, but what do I do with several?  How do they communicate with each other?  If you use this control in Visual Basic it's easy, you just say treecontrol.node.add() or treecontrol.treeview.refresh().  If I were using the windows message version of the TreeView, I could send it a WM_NOTIFY message with EXPAND so make the tree automatically expand.  How would I perform this same function when I'm treating it as an ActiveX control?  Is there any documenation out there on this or similar?

Yes, they are releated to each other. If you look at treeview.h, you'll see that the TreeView class has a lot of member functions. Some of these member functions return non-intrinsic types and hence the need for other classes. In general, all of the member functions you are used to in VB are available in VC++. Some of the names have been changed to accommodate that language features. For example, treecontrol.node does not exist in C++. Instead, you will need to use GetNodes() to retrieve a nodes object. But other than that, everything else is there and just about the same.

I was staring to glean that, but couldn't find any documentation to confirm.  I guess Class Wizard understands the need to get at the different interfaces, so it generates functions such as GetNodes() in the wrapper class to help you out.  I originally thought GetNodes() was part of the TreeView control itself.  In order to understand what all the different methods are, do I just sort of try and guess and match up with the Visual Basic documenation as best I can?  Also, would I be correct in guessing that to make the treeview expand I should make a call to get the hWnd and then send a message to the hwnd?
