Recommended Posts


Hi All,

I've a tree in my GUI design and I want to expand the tree to one/two level, read the names of the children.

How can I achieve this.

And where is your code?

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

AutoIt Version:

Author: myName

Script Function:

Template AutoIt script.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start - Add your code below here

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#include <TreeViewConstants.au3>

#include <GuiTreeView.au3>

Global $hTreeView, $fExpanded = 0

Global $ahRoot[5][2] = [[0, 0],[0, 0],[0, 0],[0, 0]]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 220, 250)

$hTreeView = GUICtrlCreateTreeView(10, 10, 200, 200, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)

$tree = ControlGetHandle("Configuration", "Configuration", "SysTreeView321")

MsgBox(4096,"Title", "Some text")

_GUICtrlTreeView_GetText($hTreeView, $ahRoot[0][0])

$ahRoot[1][0] = _GUICtrlTreeView_InsertItem($hTreeView, "RootItem1")

_GUICtrlTreeView_InsertItem($hTreeView, "SubItem1", $ahRoot[1][0])

$ahRoot[2][0] = _GUICtrlTreeView_InsertItem($hTreeView, "RootItem2")

_GUICtrlTreeView_InsertItem($hTreeView, "SubItem2", $ahRoot[2][0])

$ahRoot[3][0] = _GUICtrlTreeView_InsertItem($hTreeView, "RootItem3")

_GUICtrlTreeView_InsertItem($hTreeView, "SubItem3", $ahRoot[3][0])

$ahRoot[4][0] = _GUICtrlTreeView_InsertItem($hTreeView, "RootItem4")

_GUICtrlTreeView_InsertItem($hTreeView, "SubItem4", $ahRoot[4][0])


GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NOTIFY, "WM_Notify_Events")


This code infact creates the tree. But I want to read the tree like the "explorer tree" or any of the IDEs tree structure.
