Treeview help needed

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;
