    Tree-View Control

    I'm developing a simple Window application which tries to use Tree-View Control (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...w/treeview.asp).

    The main routines are (I don't write the full code because it would make the post a little bit unreadable):
    Code:
    hwndDialog = CreateDialog(GetModuleHandle(NULL), "DIALOG_0", hwnd, dialogProc);
    CreateATreeView(hwndDialog, "");
    ...
    ...
    HWND CreateATreeView(HWND hwndParent, LPSTR lpszFileName)
    {
        RECT rcClient;
        HWND hwndTreeView;
        
        InitCommonControls();
        GetClientRect(hwndParent, &rcClient);
    
        hwndTreeView = CreateWindowEx(
            0,
            WC_TREEVIEW,
            "Tree View",
            WS_VISIBLE | WS_CHILD | WS_BORDER | TVS_HASLINES, 
            0, 
            0, 
            rcClient.right, 
            rcClient.bottom,
            hwndParent, 
            (HMENU)ID_TREEVIEW, 
            hInstance, 
            NULL);
        
        return hwndTreeView;   
    }    
    
    BOOL InitTreeViewImageLists(HWND hwndTreeView)
    {
        HIMAGELIST himl;
        HICON hIcon;
        
        if ((himl = ImageList_Create(32, 32, FALSE, 2, 0)) == NULL) 
        return FALSE; 
        
        hIcon = LoadIcon(NULL, "folder.ico");
        if (hIcon==NULL) return FALSE;
        ImageList_AddIcon(himl, hIcon);
        
        hIcon = LoadIcon(NULL, "folder_closed.ico");
        if (hIcon==NULL) return FALSE;
        ImageList_AddIcon(himl, hIcon);
    
        TreeView_SetImageList(hwndTreeView, himl, TVSIL_NORMAL);
        
        return TRUE;
    }
    I'm using Dev-C++ 5.0 beta 9 (4.9.9.0) with Mingw/GCC 3.3.1.

    After including commctrl.h I tried to build de proyect and I got the following error:
    Code:
    Compilador: Default compiler
    Building Makefile: "C:\Mis C\treeviewcontrol01\Makefile.win"

    Somehow I concluded (I don't remember why, because I spent a lot of time trying and trying different things and reading tutorials and articles) that I had to add the comctl32.lib to the proyect. Was I right? I don't know. The first problem was that I had no idea about where I could find comctl32.lib. I searched my PC, just for trying, and since I got installed Microsoft Platform SDK (http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/...sdk/sdkupdate/), I found out that comctl32.lib was in the "\Microsoft SDK\Lib" folder.

    After including comctl32.lib to my proyect I got the following errors:
    Code:
    Compilador: Default compiler
    Building Makefile: "C:\Mis C\treeviewcontrol01\Makefile.win"
    Ejecutando  make clean

    make.exe: *** [treeviewcontrol01.exe] Error 1

    Then I said to myself that maybe I had to use the CommCtrl.h within the Platform SDK so I changed:
    Code:
    #include <commctrl.h>
    and I wrote:
    [code]#include "..\..\Archivos de programa\Microsoft SDK\include\CommCtrl.h"[code]
    ...and I got more and more errors:
    Code:
    Compilador: Default compiler

    What am I missing? Can't Tree-View control be used?

    As you can see by the length of my post, I'm going a little bit crazy. Any help would be wellcomed. Thanks in advance.

    If using MinGW(devcpp) then use its headers and libs; don't mix and match from different compilers as you'll almost certainly run into problems. For common controls, something like:
    Code:
    #if defined __MINGW_H
    #define _WIN32_IE 0x0400
    #endif
    #include <commctrl.h>
    ensures that most common controls and their associated structs and macros are available for use with MinGW (devcpp). You must also link with libcomctl32.a (-lcomctl32).
