Yes, I've started fiddling with treeviews, too. The best replacement for
the menus so far, and W95 lookalike, too. Few problems to share with the
- can't get rid of the white background. Can't it be anything else?
- how to capture MouseMove event .or. are there any tooltips? I mean,
since it substitutes the menu, I want the message to appear on either
tooltip or a label caption (the label's near the main form bottom, so it
resembles the menu message). The help for TreeView.MouseMove method
indicates lots of screen coordinates recalculation, so the node being
currently beneath the mouse pointer is hardly predictable - it may be
higher or lower, depending on branches above it being expanded or
collapsed. I've even tried adding the message to the node text (hoping
I'll get something like InfoView on M$DN distribution disks behavior),
but no luck.
- how to move a treeview class from a temporary classlib into a new one?
I've accidentally created it as a member of the wrong form class, so I
simply pasted it into the proper form class definition, and got the
incredible original path to the temp classlib hard welded in. I tried
to "Add Class Tvw of tmp to myclasslib" and got the error message #1435:
"object class is invalid for this container", and it won't move. I don't
like the idea of going on forever with a thing called tmp.vcx - it looks
ugly, doesn't it? Worse - I have a class definition depending on a class
definition in another .vcx; well, that's dirty.
I've tried even this:
add class main_form of myclasslib to tmp
add class main_form of tmp to myclasslib over
....and it was OK, except that classlib of the treeview class was
still the tmp.vcx... ;(, and there it belongs to another form class.
Any ideas, except doing it from scratch and copy/pasting properties
