Hi.

The title is self-explanatory.

I need to list in a treeview the subfolders (not the subfolders of the subfolders  (Depth=1)) of a path in registry.

Example : ( List SubFolders of    HKEY_USERS\Default )
------------------------------------------
HKEY Users
|->Default
      |-> AppEvents
      |-> Console
      |-> Control Panel
      |-> EHelp
      |-> Environment

------------------------------------------

Thanks in advance :)

Hi, here is how you can do it.

var
  Reg : TRegistry;
  s : TStringList;
begin
  Reg := TRegistry.Create;
  s := TStringList.Create;
  Reg.RootKey := HKEY_USERS;
  Reg.OpenKey('.DEFAULT', False);
  Reg.GetKeyNames(s);
  Memo1.Lines.Assign(s);
  s.Free;
  Reg.Free;
end;

here is how to do it with ttreeview:

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, ComCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    TreeView1: TTreeView;
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

uses registry;

procedure addthem(key:HKEY; path:string; treeview1:TTreeView);
var t:TTreeNode; r:tregistry; s:tstringlist; i:integer;
begin
  t:=TreeView1.Items.Add(TreeView1.Items.GetFirstNode,path);
  r:=tregistry.Create;
  r.RootKey:=key;
  if r.OpenKey(path,false) and r.HasSubKeys then
  begin
    s:=tstringlist.create;
    r.GetKeyNames(s);
    for i:=1 to s.count do
      TreeView1.Items.Addchild(t,s[i-1]);
    s.free;
  end;
  r.free;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  addthem(HKEY_USERS,'.Default',TreeView1);
end;

end.

After retrieving the list to stringlist you can simply check / search into it.
e..g
s.IndexOf('2'); // will return the index if found -1 otherwise.

OR

var
  Reg : TRegistry;
begin
  Reg := TRegistry.Create;
  Reg.RootKey := HKEY_USERS;
  Reg.OpenKey('.DEFAULT', False);
  if Reg.KeyExists('2') then
     ShowMesasage('The key exists');
  Reg.Free;
end;
