To create a threaded NNTP news reader

rikkinorway asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-05
I have created a newsreader with the Indy (10) components, and (almost) everything is going great, so far.
Except for one thing: I can't figure out how to build the message tree in a properly threaded layout (like the most commercial newsreader's do).
I know that the best way to do this, is to make use of the messageID and the reference parameter's, stored in the articleheader, but i can't figure out how. (I know that the reference is a list of messageID's)
I have tried for a long time, but i only get one level of childnodes to a top article (start of thread), and many articles are missing.

I really need a code example now.

(I use a modified TTreeView-component, with the ability of adding columns, so i know how to add nodes/childnodes to it)

Any help will be appreciated!
