Help needed with TreeView

Dear Experts,
I want to use a treeview, but i don't know nothing about it.
And i need to make my treeview working asap.
So there will be lots of points to be earned.

I have 2 buttons on the toolbar, one is for to create a node as a folder in the treeview
and 1 is to create a file in a treeview. For every node there is a window appearing
where the user can enter the filename or foldername.
How can I do that?

Greeting, PeterKiers

you need to add a TImageList (you other Q) with a Folder icon and a File icon


unit Unit1;
 
interface
 
uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, StdCtrls, ExtCtrls, ComCtrls, ImgList;
 
type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    btnAddFolder: TButton;
    TreeView1: TTreeView;
    Edit1: TEdit;
    btnAddFile: TButton;
    ImageList1: TImageList;
    procedure btnAddFolderClick(Sender: TObject);
    procedure btnAddFileClick(Sender: TObject);
  private
    procedure AddItem(aText: string; aIndex: Integer; aParent: TTreeNode);
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;
 
var
  Form1: TForm1;
 
implementation
 
{$R *.dfm}
 
procedure TForm1.AddItem(aText: string; aIndex: Integer; aParent: TTreeNode);
var item: TTreeNode;
begin
  item := TTreeNode.Create(TreeView1.Items);
  item.Text := aText;
  item.ImageIndex := aIndex;
  item.SelectedIndex := aIndex;
  TreeView1.Items.AddNode(item, aParent, aText, nil, naAddChild);
end;
 
procedure TForm1.btnAddFileClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if (TreeView1.Selected <> nil) and (TreeView1.Selected.ImageIndex = 0) then
  begin
    AddItem(Edit1.Text, 1, TreeView1.Selected);
  end else
    ShowMessage('First select a folder');
end;
 
procedure TForm1.btnAddFolderClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  AddItem(Edit1.Text, 0, nil);
