Hi, can you please tell how we can disable few CTreeCtrl items and few of them enable.
I shouldnt be able to perform any action on those disabled items, i shouldnt be able to check it's check box, i shouldnt be able to edit those items too.

I do not want to use this function:      
SetItemStateEx(l_hTempItem, TVIS_EX_DISABLED);


Regards and thanks for the help

You could keep a list of the HTREEITEMs that you wish to "disable"; then, whenever the user clicks on the tree control, you get the item that was clicked on, comparing it to the items in your list.  If the item exists in the list, then you prevent the click from going through.

I believe the function you want is OnNMClicked or similar...

Is there any other way of doing it other than storing the list of items to be disabled. something like setting the state of HTREEITEM, by setting some flags in SetItemState(),

The checkboxes are not actual checkboxes, but are in fact images from an image list; you can prove this by using Spy++ on a tree control with checkboxes.  Therefore, there is no "control" as such to "disable".  Your best bet is to create the illusion of a "disabled" checkbox, by perhaps using a three-state-checkbox tree control, like this one:

http://www.codeguru.com/cpp/controls/treeview/misc-advanced/article.php/c3983/TreeView-with-Three-State-Checkboxes.htm

You still need to keep a list of the items to disable though, so can programatically alter the image being shown to the "disabled" one.

Oh, and to prevent the editing of the label text, you need to trap TVN_ITEMCHANGING, and return TRUE to prevent the edit from being initiated.  But again, you still need to keep a list of the items you don't want to be edited.
