This is what I want to do. Have a text file with the following fields.

***Record 1
MyCategory
My Software
File1
File2
http://www.test.com
***

***Record 2
AllCategory
Shareware
File1
File2
http://www.test2.com
***

I want to create a treeview with all the records in the Treeview, but I only want to display the first field in the treeview and the rest of the information in labels.

The parent nodes must be according the categories.

Hi DigitalNam,

try this code:

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  ComCtrls, StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    TreeView1: TTreeView;
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private-Deklarationen }
  public
    { Public-Deklarationen }
     Procedure AddNewRecord(Category,Software:String; Files:tStrings);
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}


Procedure Tform1.AddNewRecord(Category,Software:String; Files:tStrings);
VAR
 Node : tTreeNode;
 Cnt  : Integer;
Begin
  Node := TreeView1.Items.AddChild(NIL, Category);
  Node := TreeView1.Items.AddChild(Node, Software);
  For cnt := 0 TO Files.count-1 do
    TreeView1.Items.AddChild(Node,Files.Strings[cnt])
End;

// Hier you open your Text file and insert the records
// in the Treeview

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
VAR
  files : tStrings;
begin
  Files := tStringList.Create;
  Try
    Files.Add ('File1');
    Files.Add ('File2');
    Files.Add ('File3');
    Files.Add ('File4');
    AddNewRecord('A Category','My Software',Files);
  Finally
    Files.Free;
  End;
end;

end.

Best Regards

Look at the TTreeNode.Data property

You can use this to store lot's of information directly within the node.

I'll not go into greate detail about your specific problem but here's a general pointer.


Type
  TCargo = Class( TObject )
    MyTest : String;
  End;


Procedure AddMyNode( TreeView : TTreeView );
Var
  Node : TTreeNode;
Begin
  Node := TreeView.Items.Add( nil, 'My Caption', TCargo.Create );

  TCargo( Node.Data ).MyTest := 'Blah Blah Blah';
End;


procedure TForm1.MyTreeOptionsDeletion(Sender: TObject; Node: TTreeNode);
begin
  If Node.Data <> nil Then
  Begin
    TCargo( Node.Data ).Free;
    Node.Data := nil;
  End;
end;


You can then save whatever you want in the Tree.  Using techniques like Poly-morphism you easily create very complex tree's with different kinds of data on each node!

I appreciate all the help, but I still want to load all the items from a text file. The basic idea behind the project is a software CD. Looks something like this

Essential Software
  Winzip
  DirectX
Internet Software
  Napster
  Internet Explorer
Graphics Software
  Corel Draw
  Paint Shop Pro

How can I store for example the Winzip item with a link to where the program is and some general info about the program. Hope this helps.

Thanks again.

you could abuse an ini file for storing the informations
the structure would be like this

[Essential Software] //would be a parent node
 Winzip=linktoWinZip //would be a child node
 DirectX=linktoDX    //...
[Internet Software]
and so on


when you read the file you can go from section to section with a parentnode for the items with the sectionname as caption.

So you would creat a node (either with parent nil or a major parent) with the caption 'Essential Software' and create nodes with this node as parent that have 'Winzip' etc. as caption and the rest of the things you want to have there you can store with the node.data.
