I have a CTreeCtrl and a List Box in the DLL.  When implementing the threads, the CTreeCtrl and List Box were destroyed when the control moves back to the main program.
How can I hold the CTreeCtrl and List Box (with data in them)?  Can anyone help?  Thanks.

You have to define it like global variables for example.

I did.  I also use TldSetValue() to set (LPVOID) lParam into memory space, but it doesn't seems to work.
