Hi,
   There is tree control. Each node having some text.
    I want to check whether "abc" string exist in tree or not.
    You can say I just want to use find functionality.
    How can I do ?

The only way I know is to step through the tree and check each item.  Fortunately, it's easy to step through ignoring the tree structure (it's also easy to do it using the tree structure if you want to do something like find the most root-like item that matches):


HTREEITEM item = ctlTree->GetRootItem();
while ((item != NULL) && (ctlTree->GetItemText(item).CompareNoCase(strSearch) != 0))
{
    item = ctlTree->GetNextItem(item, TVGN_NEXTVISIBLE);
}
if (item != NULL)
    // Found the item.


Hope this helps.

Oh, and here's the method for searching if you want to check the non-visible items:


HTREEITEM GetMatchingItem(CString& strMatch, CTreeCtrl* ctlTree, HTREEITEM start /*= NULL*/)
{
    HTREEITEM item, child;

    if (start == NULL)
        item = ctlTree->GetRootItem();
    else
        item = start;

    while ((item != NULL) && (ctlTree->GetItemText(item).CompareNoCase(strMatch) != 0))
    {
        child = ctlTree->GetNextItem(item, TVGN_CHILD);
        child = GetMatchingItem(strMatch, ctlTree, child);
        if (child != NULL)
            return child;
        item = ctlTree->GetNextItem(item, TVGN_NEXT);
    }

    return item;
}


This was typed in on the fly, so watch out for bugs.

Hope this helps.
