TreeView ... Working with...

Hi !
I'm using delphi 5 Enterprise with Win98SE and WinNT4.0.
I'm testing a bit with the TreeView-Control...
I want to have a directory-structure with node-texts like "Ingos directory". With a doubleclick then i want to put the real content (for example "c:\ingo") into an edit-field...
I'm not looking for a complete source-code. I only want to know what's the property for the text i see when opening the TreeView (for example "ingos directory") and where i can put the real value (for example "c:\ingo"). How can i put this value at least into the edit-field? I got error-messages like "TreeNode and String isn't compatible...". What i have to redefine here?
Thanks a lot for your help!
Best regards,
Ingo

type TNodeDataRec = Record
                      RealName : String[100];
                      //..maybe more attributes
                    end;
     PNodeDataRec = ^TNodeDataRec;

somewhere on adding the nodes
 
var
  NodeData : PNodeDataRec;
  ANode    : TTreeNode;
begin
  ANode := TreeView1.Items.Add(Nil,'Ingos directory');
  NodeData := New(PNodeDataRec);
  NodeData^.RealName := 'C:\ingo';
  ANode.Data := NodeData;
  ...
end;

on doubleClick-event

var
  ANode : TTreeNode;
  NodeData : PNodeDataRec;
begin
  ANode := TreeView1.Selected;
  If (Assigned(ANode)) and (Assigned(ANode.Data)) then
    ShowMessage(PNodeDataRec(ANode.Data)^.RealName);
    //or something other
end;

on the on-delete event

If Assigned(Node.Data) then  
  Dispose(PNodeDataRec(ANode.Data));  //free memors

well just in short in just from head,
(typos and mismatches may possible, because untested)
