Hi nima,

For a sample procedure to remove all nodes from a TreeView ActiveX control, please read this MS article (How to Remove All Nodes from TreeView Control):
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q172/2/86.asp?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=treeview&rnk=15&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=ACC

To fill a TreeView ActiveX control recursivley, please read this MS article (Sample Procedure to Fill a TreeView Control Recursively):
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q167/3/09.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=treeview&rnk=5&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=ACC

If you are running Access 2000, then read MS Article (ACC2000: How To Fill a TreeView Control Recursively):
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q209/8/91.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=treeview&rnk=18&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=ACC

Hope this helps,

Hi Mohamadi,

Each node in a tree is actually a programmable Node object, which belongs to the Nodes collection. As in other collections, each member of the collection has a unique Index and Key property which allows you to access the properties of the node. For example, the code below uses the Index of a particular node ("7") to set the Image and Text properties:

tvwMyTree.Nodes(7).Image = "closed"
tvwMyTree.Nodes(7).Text = "IEEE"

However, if a unique key, for example "7 ID" had been assigned to the node, the same code could be written as follows:

tvwMyTree.Nodes("7 ID").Image = "closed"
tvwMyTree.Nodes("7 ID").Text = "IEEE"


Therefore, to delete a node from the collection (say "7 ID"), you should use:

tvwMyTree.Nodes("7 ID").Delete
or
tvwMyTree.Nodes(7).Delete


Moreover, I think that you should read http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?URL=/library/devprods/vs6/vbasic/vbcon98/vbconusingtreeviewcontrol.htm for more information and Tip on using the TreeView ActiveX control.

Hope this helps,

Hi

thanks for your help, but you may know that in Delphi Nodes of treeview has builtin ability to remove all of children from itself(method name is TNode.DeleteChildren).I mean that is there any method like that in TreeView in Access2000?

thanks

Hi Mohamadi,

Unfortunatly, I'm not familiar with Delphi.
The only way that I can think of, to allow you delete a banch of nodes at once (according to their parent) is using some kind of loop to examine the parent name (or ID), and if it meats your criteria, then delete the node.

Hope this helps,
