Preventing editing item labels in tree view


This article was contributed by Marius Bakelis.

If we have created tree view control with the TVS_EDITLABELS style we can edit all its items labels. But sometimes we do need that not all tree view control items labels could be editable. So we must prevent editing of item labels we don't want to be editable. We can override the PreTranslateMessage() function:



BOOL CTreeCtrlX::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg) 
{
    if( pMsg->message == WM_LBUTTONDOWN )
    {
		UINT		flag = TVHT_ONITEMLABEL;
		CPoint		pt = pMsg->pt;

		ScreenToClient(&pt);
		
		if( HitTest( pt, &flag ) == GetSelectedItem() 
			// && there you can check is the item which cannot be editable
			)
		{
			SetFocus();	//We must set focus to the tree view control
					//becouse it can have no focus

			return TRUE ;   // DO NOT process further
		}
    }

    return CTreeCtrl::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);
}

    As before except;

    UINT flag = 0;


    if( ( ( tree.HitTest( pt, &flag ) == tree.GetSelectedItem()
    &&( flag & TVHT_ONITEMLABEL ) ) // new bit
    && ( FALSE ) ) // your check in here

    But I wouldn't have got this far without the original code(!)

    Thanks

  • Why not handle TVN_BEGINLABELEDIT notification?

    A more straightforward way to inhibit label editing would be to handle the TVM_BEGINLABELEDIT notification. Return FALSE to allow and TRUE to cancel label editing.

We have top-down mandate that our organizations should be "mobile first" and undergo "digital transformations" without a lot of additional insight as to how that should become a reality. In the meantime, members within our organizations inherently understand the benefits of mobile apps -- and, understandably, they want to benefit from them. But the resources to bring an app into existence …
