2) A question in TreeCtrl ......
 
In Windows Explorer , u will see a "+" sign just before a empty Directory and when u click on the "+" sign the "+" sign disappears showing that directory is empty !!!
 
I would like to implement something like that .... is there any extended flag available for the above method ????

thanks

No, just add a dummy child to the tree node. When the user clicks on the node, you get a notification. In the response to this notification, if you delete the empty node, then you'll get the disappearing +.

Hi Thui,
Thanks for ur suggestion as I am aleady doing that trick !!!!
I have come across a member of TVITEM Structure named cChildren and if u specify the value of cChildren to  1 then the treeview displays a "+" sign by default assuming that there will be one or more child items for that parent Item...but when I click on that Parent Item the "+" symbol does not disappear !!!!

If u have any suggestions regarding the above method !!! please mail back to me ....

thanks

You should not set the children count to 1 because this will confuse the control. Instead, as I suggested, insert a dummy child item. You then need to respond to TVN_ITEMEXPANDING and delete the dummy child control.
