Sorry only 50 points, but I'm getting low on points again.  So, if you're feeling chartitable...

I have two TreeViews side by side.  I want to duplicate some of the Windows Epxlorer type functionality by enabling "drag-and-drop"  (both ways) between the 2 TreeViews.

I'm looking for some sample code that will work with a form plus 2 TreeView components dropped on it and away I go.

Thanks!

Knowlton,

Add the code below to the respective events of both TTreeView components:

procedure TForm1.TreeView1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
  State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
begin
      Accept := Source is TTreeView;
end;

procedure TForm1.TreeView1DragDrop(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer);
var
      NewNode, SrcNode, DestNode : TTreeNode;
begin
      SrcNode := TTreeView(Source).Selected;
  DestNode := TTreeView(Sender).GetNodeAt(X, Y);

  if DestNode = nil then
        NewNode := TTreeView(Sender).Items.Add(nil, SrcNode.Text)
  else
        NewNode := TTreeView(Sender).Items.AddChild(DestNode, SrcNode.text);
   // If you want to "MOVE" the node instead of Copying it, add the code below
   // SrcNode.Delete;
end;


Also remember to set both TTreeView's DragMode property to dmAutomatic.

Yours,

Alex

if you want copy or move the node and all his childnode. use my code.  :)

procedure TForm1.TreeView1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
  State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
begin
  Accept := Source is TTreeView;
end;

procedure TForm1.TreeView1DragDrop(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer);
  procedure CopyChildNode(ASNode:TTreeNode;var ADNode:TTreeNode);
  var
    i:integer;
    CNode:TTreeNode;
  begin
    for i:=0 to ASNode.Count-1 do
    begin
      CNode:=TTreeView(Sender).Items.AddChild(ADNode,ASNode.Item[i].Text);
      if ASNode.Item[i].HasChildren then
        CopyChildNode(ASNode.Item[i],CNode);
    end;
  end;

var
  NNode, SNode, DNode : TTreeNode;
begin
  SNode := TTreeView(Source).Selected;
  DNode := TTreeView(Sender).GetNodeAt(X, Y);

  if DNode = nil then
   NNode := TTreeView(Sender).Items.Add(nil, SNode.Text)
  else
   NNode := TTreeView(Sender).Items.AddChild(DNode, SNode.text);
  if SNode.HasChildren then CopyChildNode(SNode,NNode);
  //SNode.Delete;
end;

>use my code.  :)

As if your code wasn't 85% percent copied. You barely changed the names of the variables.

Glad to know, knowlton.

Funny thing is I never got an e-mail notification that you accepted my answer. Is it me or has EE been very weird in the last 2 days?
