Hi Asi!

Is it an exception or an error box? Try to go through your program step by step with the IDE debugger.

Difficult thing. The only thing I can suggest is this: Compile your project with debug units (see project options) on. This case the debugger can also go through Borland's units (e.g. forms.pas etc) step by step. You'll have to dig and fine the location, where the box is shown. Then you can look at the callstack (see debug menu). Perhaps you'll then find the reason for the error box. You'll have to play Sherlock Holmes...   :-(

This sounds as if you mess around with window handles inside Delphi components.
Concentrate on the changed handles.

Hi Madhsi,

I have the same problem when I handle with threads and there's something wrong in the thread. Somehow the resource interfere - I think - and this happens a lot when I access a TTreeView in my thread.

Good luck,

Hi Martin!

>> and this happens a lot when I access a TTreeView in my thread

Fact is that the VCL is not thread safe (shame on Borland). That means you should not access VCL components from other threads than the main thread. You can go around this problem by using pure win32 APIs for updating your tree view.
