How can I create 3 columns in a TreeView in VB6?

Posted on 2006-06-28

I would like to create 3 columns in a TreeView, where all the rows are Left justified one below the other, and the following is the sample code I used:

Set nodx = TreeView1.Nodes.Add(nodr, tvwChild, , "Rs.Name" & vbTab & "" & vbTab & "Rs.Amount")

The vbTab is not good, because it returns a character that is from a different language. To put in spaces will not either be good, because the rows will not be properly aligned.

Please advise me how to work around this.
Thank you.

Can u please explain a good reason why u want to use TreeView for this instead of using ListView or ms flex grid if u want hierarchical view of items ?

u can create as much columns as u want in ListView. TreeView, by it's nature, doesn't support columns. do the following for list view

    Dim lvwli As ListItem
    With ListView1
        .View = lvwReport
        With .ColumnHeaders
            .Add , "colName", "Name"
            .Add , "colDate", "Date"
            .Add , "colAmt", "Amount"
        End With
        Set lvwli = .ListItems.Add(, , "My Name")
        lvwli.SubItems(1) = "A Date"
        lvwli.SubItems(2) = "An Amount"
    End With

if u want hierarchical view, create a custom disconnected recordset with the hierarchy u want and bind it with a flex grid. it is much more powerful. if u want help on creating hierarchical disconnected recordset, lemme know.

in that case it's better to use msflex grid with disconnected hierarchical recordset as it'll give powerful control over UI.
