Renaming a Treeview node

Dear Experts,

I have made a little programm that has a Treeview, a RichEdit.
and 4 buttons on a Panel. 2 buttons are for loading and saving
the treeview nodes with its associating text on the RichtEdit
to a database. The other 2 buttons are for creating a Folder-node
and a File-node in the Treeview. Everything works perfect.

Now I want to make a new button on the panel for renaming
a node in the Treeview.

Who can help me with this?

I have put the example on my site:

You see a floppy disc.

Greetings, Peter Kiers

TreeViews have item indexes just like stringlists.

So to rename a node and if you know its absolute index, then it would be simple.

Try something like this after you click the item you want to change... (set X equal to the absolute index you are seeking. From 0 to items.count -1).

X := 2;

if TreeView1.Selected.AbsoluteIndex = X then
 TreeView1.Items[X].Text := 'BLAH BLAH';

For testing and learning, in the OnClick event of the Treeview, add the code above and set X to the index of the node you want to rename.

Did it rename it?

I guess I am not understanding what exactly it is you are wanting to do then.

procedure TForm1.Button3Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
if TreeView1.Selected.AbsoluteIndex = 0 then
 TreeView1.Items[0].Text := 'BLAH BLAH';
end;

This procedure above only renames the first treenode!
I want a procedure that the user can select a random treenode
from the treeview and then press the delete button and the
node than will be deleded.

Well... change 0 to the index of the treenode you want to rename.

If the absoluteindex is 5 or the 6th node, use 5!
