Hello
  I'm using VB6. I try to set visible=false for some node in TreeView control but this error appear
  "Property is read-only"
  Why this error occur?
  First,I fetch all nodes into the TreeView, then I want to set visible only the node that match the criteria.
  How can I do?

Thanks,
OrasaJ.

That is a read only property and is not used like you are thinking it is.  It's to let you know if the node is visible or not in the treeview at the moment you call it.  If a node is not shown because it's a child of a parent that is collapsed it will return false, or if the node is not within the visible portion of the treeview it will return false, otherwise it is seen on the screen and will return true.

If I need to do what you are wanting to do, I generally will write a routine that will load the treeview as needed based on some certain criteria.

Dear Sharmon
   Thank you for your comment. Because of the design of my program is hard to do like that, but if there is noway then I will modify my code. Thanks a lot.

Nope, there is not any way to use that property like you are wanting to.  Sorry, take care.

Your welcome for the info, but as far as the grade of B goes for this, did you decide I should get a B because I told you what you wanted to do couldn't be done?  Does seem a little unfair don't you think.  If you were not happy with my comment, you should have left the question open until you found something you liked better.

Sharmon,
    Sorry for that, I don't know too much about the meaning and important of the grade I gived. It seem you upset for grade B. I just know that if I gived grade B mean I am not happy with the comment. Sorry again if I did the wrong thing and thank you for answer my question.

Regards,
OrasaJ.
