Now, the window info says this belongs to class listview. but it looks like a tree view. and Control tree view isn't working.

We've seen controls like this before.

The main problem is that they are usually custom controls, made up of a treeview and a listview together. A lot of people have made a lot of different versions, and so no two are ever the same.

Does it expand when you double click on the item outside of the + button? If so you may be able to use _GUICtrlListView_ClickItem or similar.

See if you can get hold of Spy++ (which is a more advanced version of the AutoIt Window Info tool, usually shipped with visual studio, but may be downloadable seperately). It should let you see the tree of controls, so you can see if there are any child controls of the tree/listview. Failing that, it will let you monitor messages for the window, so you can manually expand the tree and see what messages you are sending.

There is no easy or catch-all solution for custom controls like this unfortunately.
