Well, this is not a real question but maybe I can benefit from the experience of others. Here it goes: I use a TTreeView to represent my data. If the data changes I've got two options (beside others). A) Rebuild the whole tree. B) Just care about the changes.

Ad A: My representation is always consistent but performance is worse and I loose the focus of the selected node.
Ad B: Performance is high but I hold a copy of my data that may (due a bug) differ from the original data.

What do you prefer?

i would prefer C:

modify your tree(node),
actualize the data

who changes the data?
you within the tree, or someother in the data (file?)?

above is for
-you within the tree

>It is me but from somewhere else.
??? rephrasing the question
does your instance changes the data, or any other instance

if first, then C
if second, then B

A depends on the amount of data

The data can be changed from outside my form and from the form containing my tree view. Changing one node can lead to multiple changes in other nodes:

node: Main_1
     node: Child_1   ***
     node: Child_2
node: Main_2
     node: Child_3
     node: Child_1   ***

Renaming Child_1 must appear in the node in Main_1 and in the node in Main_2.

there is a possibility,
to store relevant data in the data-property.

doing so, it is possible that nodes can share
relevant data
(multiple nodes pointing to one data-reference).

then i fyou do drawing the caption byelf in the tree,
you can lookup to the shared data

you may take a look into
(using mike lischkes virtualtree)


well, could be i'm on a wrong track,
and misunderstand this q
