Dear experts,

I have received a code from an expert and it works just fine.
But with this code your not able to create a folder in a folder.

What do I have to change:

Peter Kiers
(*----------------------------------------*)
procedure TMainForm.NewFolder1Click(Sender: TObject);
var aText: string;
begin
  if InputQuery('New Folder', 'New Folder Name:', aText) then
    AddItem(aText, 0, nil);
end;
(*----------------------------------------*)
procedure TMainForm.NewItem1Click(Sender: TObject);
var aText: string;
begin
  if (TreeView1.Selected <> nil) and (Treeview1.Selected.ImageIndex = 0) then 
  begin
    if InputQuery('New Item', 'New Item Name:', aText) then
      AddItem(aText, 1, TreeView1.Selected);
  end else 
    ShowMessage('Select a folder in the treeview first.');
end;
(*----------------------------------------*)
procedure TMainForm.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;

sorry, didn't test in Delphi, just typed it in firefoxy
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);
var aText: string;
begin
  if InputQuery('Folder', 'Enter a folder name', aText) then
    AddItem(aText, 0, nil);
end;
 
procedure TForm1.btnAddSubFolderClick(Sender: TObject);
var aText: string;
begin
  if (TreeView1.Selected <> nil) and (TreeView1.Selected.ImageIndex = 0) then
  begin
    if InputQuery('New Sub Folder', 'New Sub Folder Name:', aText) then
      AddItem(aText, 0, TreeView1.Selected);
  end else 
    ShowMessage('You must select a folder first !');
end;

You made for adding a subfolder in a folder a new button
But I want to use the same add folder button
and I know its possible.
I have send an example.

begin
  aParent := nil;
  if TreeView1.Selected <> nil then 
  begin
    if TreeView1.Selected.ImageIndex = 0 then // check for folder
      aParent := TreeView1.Selected
    //else 
    //begin
    //  ShowMessage('Select a folder first');

  end;
  if InputQuery('Folder', 'Enter a folder name', aText) then
    AddItem(aText, 0, aParent);

Much better, only the new created subfolder will not automaticly collapse
you have to press the + sign to see the created subfolder.
