It seems that the only way to "catch" a check box click in a CTreeCtrl is to override the OnClick() method. The only problem is that it does not give you any info back as to whick hTree item's check box was clicked on.

Does anybody have an idea how this can be done?

I've read about the CCheckListBox control, which could probably also work, but it seems like such an effert to get it going.

Did you try to use HitTest after OnClick() ?

This code seems to work:

#include "windowssx.h"

// handler of NM_CLICK message
CMyDlg::OnClickTree(......)
{
  DWORD dw = GetMessagePos();
  CPoint pt(GET_X_LPARAM(dw),GET_Y_LPARAM(dw));
  m_Tree.ScreenToClient(&pt);
 
  UINT flags;
  HTREEITEM hItem = m_Tree.HitTest(pt,&flags);
 
  if(hItem)
    TRACE("%s\n",m_Tree.GetItemText(hItem));

  *pResult = 0;
}

Couple notes:  m_Tree member var. represents tree in your dialog.
I didn't copy/paste, so typos is possible...

Hope it helps...

Hi Friend,
Write the following code in OnClick()
{
    POSITION pos=GetFirstSelectedItemPos();
    if(pos != NULL)
    {
    int nIndex=GetNextSelectedItem(pos);
    //This Index will tell u.which item u click
    }
}

Thanks! Did not know about GetMessagePos()

The only typo in here is #include "windowsx.h" not #include "windowssx.h"

Thanks again!
