How to set CTreeView properties

 Im trying to set my CTreeView control properties with the code:

SetWindowLongPtr( GetTreeCtrl().m_hWnd, GWL_STYLE, TVS_HASBUTTONS | TVS_CHECKBOXES );

However, it ends up crashing my program somewhere after the call. My CLeftView class owns the control and I tried calling it from the constuctor. Any help would be great.

Try using

long style = GetWindowLong(m_ctrlTree, GWL_STYLE);
SetWindowLong(m_ctrlTree, GWL_STYLE, style | TVS_HASBUTTONS | TVS_CHECKBOXES );

Here m_ctrlTree is the TreeControl object attached to the tree control.

Hope this helps.
