Treeview LabelEdit

Posted on 2002-05-06

Does anyone know how to intercept/monitor the editing of a treeview node?  For example, I want to be able to know what the text is at any given point during the editing, or what the selected text is.  I also want to be able to set a maxlength on the label text.  These are just a couple things I need to do.  I am not interested in doing input validation in the AfterEdit event!  It must be done while the editing is in progress.

Thanks for any help.

I guess that this might be possible using some API hooking the treeview edit, but I am not sure.
Another option would be that you place a textbox instead of letting the treeview handling the edit box...

Use subclassing:
Get full control on the text typed in a TreeView's node

or use API (SendMessage / SetWindowLong):
Limit the length of the text in a TreeView node
