    Question How do I use Tree-View with LB_DIR(PLEASE ANSWER & READ MORE)?

    I have seen programs with dir's in a LISTBOX. I was wondering how I use Tree-View or whatever I need to use to put dir's in a listbox, and when you DBLCLK one, how do I show the contents of that directory in the LISTBOX? Then, how would I use that to move through folders?

    Hey SyntaxBubble;

    it is easy to setup a list box to read the files of a dir, the hard part is navigating through directories.

    create a listbox with WM_NOTIFY in it.

    then set the dir you want to read and the type of files to show.

    SetCurrentDirectory ("c:"); //SET dir to c:
    SendMessage (LsthWnd, LB_DIR,0x0000 , (LPARAM)"*.*") ; //disp files

    case WM_COMMAND:
    switch(HIWORD(wParam))
    {
    case LBN_DBLCLK:
    i = SendMessage (LsthWnd, LB_GETCURSEL, 0, 0); //get selected sel into i
    SendMessage (LsthWnd, LB_GETTEXT, i, (LPARAM) szBuf); //Get the text
    MessageBox(NULL,szBuf,"File Selected",NULL);//disp file name


    to navigate directories, you need to get the current directory and
    read and set the directory the user wants to navigate to. If you want i can send you my source that does this, just ask me if you want to see it.

    i hope i helped
    arrh, i got nothing good to say.

    Here is some code. It is not my code because my code got rapidly changed to the point where it doesnt do what you want. But here is a sample program from Petzolds book. The exe is included with full source.
