I presume you use a CTreeCtrl with TVS_CHECKBOXES.
I couldn't find any standard notification message, but I have an workarround: you may wait NM_CLICK and verify wether the checkbos is checked or not  (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/shellcc/platform/commctls/treeview/treeview.asp ,the last example in "Working with state image indexes") .

I know it must be way too late now, but anyway, for the knowledgebase:
There is a better way - derive a class from CTreeCtrl and override with this one:

void CTreeCtrlEx::OnLButtonDown(UINT nFlags, CPoint point)
{
      UINT uFlags=0;
      HTREEITEM hItem = HitTest(point,&uFlags);

      if( uFlags & TVHT_ONITEMSTATEICON )
      {
            AfxMessageBox("Checked/unchecked");
            // determine by using GetCheck(hItem)
            // you can send a custom message if you want.
            return;
      }

      CTreeCtrl::OnLButtonDown(nFlags, point);
}

Hi Stilgar,

I was just looking over these responses - it's been a long time, but maybe you can remember...  I subclassed CTreeCtrl and provided the virtual function to override OnLButtonDown as you said to do, but my function is not being called.  Do I absolutely need a message map so that it is called?  I'm not sure what to use as a message map if that's the case - how do you determine which dialog ID to use and still have a generic class?

Thanks for your help,
Mike

Hi,

Its been a while since I touched MFC GUI controls... AFAIR just overriding the function should do, but I may as well be wrong. Try creating the OnLButtonDown function in your sub-class using the MFC wizards - this should create whatever is needed for this function to work. Also, make sure you're not overriding this message elsewhere (for example in PreTranslateMessage).
