imagelist

I am trying to set the images  property for fcDBTreeview at run time. I have
two
different image list that I use depending upon the node level. These
properties are set in the
an oncalcnodes event.  When I run this code wierd things happen: You can not
navigate the tree.The
queries do not run. Should I set this property else where in the code
besides the oncal procedure? Or do I need to set additional properties?
Please advise.
procedure TForm1.fcDBTreeView1CalcNodeAttributes(
  TreeView: TfcDBCustomTreeView; Node: TfcDBTreeNode);
begin

        if node.level = 0
             fcDBTreeView1.Images := imagelist1;
       else
      if node.level = 1
           fcDBTreeView1.Images := imagelist2;
     end;

If you place the images in the same imagelist, it will possible to select the imageindex.  I don't know if it is possible to use seperate lists

First of all, you might want to go in CommunitySupport topic and request that your other question to be deleted and your points returned. It's a duplicate. Alternatively you can delete it yourself, but it's a little dirtier.

About your question:
meirchen seems right, you should use one single image list.
The cause is probably in the implementation of the treeview control, which is merely a wrapper over Windows's standard control. The handler you quoted gets probably called as response to a callback from Windows itself, and at that time it might be not possible to change the image list (operation that is still a WinAPI tree control message itself).

Just my opinion,
F.
