Dear Experts,

I have received code from an expert that works just fine.

When an user create a new folder/file
the new created file/folder must be automaticly collapsed (and that works fine)
But the new created file/folder must also be selected (and the code doesn't do that)

Who can help me with this?

Greetings, Peter Kiers
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);

  item.MakeVisible;

end;

(*----------------------------------------*)

procedure TMainForm.NewFolder1Click(Sender: TObject);

var aText: string;

  aParent: TTreeNode;

begin

  aParent := nil;

  if TreeView1.Selected <> nil then 

  begin

    if TreeView1.Selected.ImageIndex = 0 then

      aParent := TreeView1.Selected

  end;

  if InputQuery('Folder', 'Enter a folder name', aText) then

    AddItem(aText, 0, aParent);

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;

first set TreeView1.HideSelection := False;
this will allways show the selection, even when the treeview is not focused
I sometimes set RowSelect := True as well
but this prevents editing.

and then you only need to add 1 line:




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);

  item.MakeVisible;

  TreeView1.Selected := item;

end;
