I would like to create two command buttons: one that scrolls a treeview to the top for viewing and the other that scrolls the treeview to the bottom.  How do I do this?  Please provide me with the code.

Thanks

Here is a very simple way to do this.  I have only tested it with 50 nodes so I don't know how fast it will be if there are many nodes.  There may also be a better way to do this.  I will keep checking.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   
    'Scroll bottom
    TreeView1.Nodes(1).Selected = True
    TreeView1.Nodes(TreeView1.Nodes.Count).Selected = True
   
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
   
    'Scroll top
    TreeView1.Nodes(TreeView1.Nodes.Count).Selected = True
    TreeView1.Nodes(1).Selected = True
   
End Sub

Here is a better way to do this.  Hope this helps.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   
   'Scroll bottom
   TreeView1.Nodes(TreeView1.Nodes.Count).EnsureVisible  
 
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
   
   'Scroll top
   TreeView1.Nodes(1).EnsureVisible      

End Sub

Hi,

Yes, you surely will use Select or EnsureVisible methods, but the algo gencross supposed is not good, since nodes indices are not guaranteed to be from top to bottom, but in order of their load.

So, you should use FirstSibling, LastSibling, Expanded and some other properties of the treeview control.

Also, it is quite difficult to scroll line by line from CURRENT position, since there is no "IsVisible" property for the node object.

By the way, why not to use standard treeview scrollbars?

Sincerely,
Crin

I'm not sure, but I believe the highest index of a control (treeview, combobox, listbox, collection, etc...) is going to be assigned to the last item (node).  You cannot, for example, assign index 10 to the first item in the treeview.  You can assign a key of "10" to the item, but the index should always start at 0 or 1 (1 in the case of the treeview) and the last item should have the highest index.  Not necessary the highest key, but that doesn't matter because key and index are two different things.  Please let me know if I am wrong.

Hi,

Simple test will show indices applying.
Open new project, add MS Windows Common Controls, place treeview on the form, paste the code and run the form.

The code is obvious, so you will simple see what is node  index for particular node.

Private Sub Form_Load()

Dim nd As Node


Me.TreeView1.Nodes.Add , , "a", "a"
Me.TreeView1.Nodes.Add , , "b", "b"

Me.TreeView1.Nodes.Add "a", tvwChild, "a1", "a1"
Me.TreeView1.Nodes.Add "a", tvwChild, "a2", "a2"
Me.TreeView1.Nodes.Add "b", tvwChild, "b1", "b1"
Me.TreeView1.Nodes.Add "a", tvwChild, "a3", "a3"

For Each nd In Me.TreeView1.Nodes
  nd.Text = nd.Index
Next

End Sub


Sincerely,
Crin

By the way - numeric key values are prohibited for the Node object as well as for ListItem object, so you can not assign "10" value to particular node key value, in spite of the fact key property is string.

Also, Index property is read-only for Node (and ListItem) and it achieve value while Add method execution for Nodes collection. So, you also cannot operate with it after node is loaded except to *get* its value.

Sincerely,
Crin
