Expanding a branch


The treeview has built in support for expanding expanding the outline one level at a time. If you want to completely expand a branch, the code below will help. It uses recursion to expand all items. The last line, that is, the call to EnsureVisible() is useful when this code is hooked up to a user interface. After expanding the outline branch, the previously selected item may have scrolled off and calling EnsureVisible() brings it back.
 
// ExpandBranch - Expands a branch completely
// hti          - Handle of the tree item to expand
void CTreeCtrlX::ExpandBranch( HTREEITEM hti )
{
        if( ItemHasChildren( hti ) ){
                Expand( hti, TVE_EXPAND );
                hti = GetChildItem( hti );
                do{
                        ExpandBranch( hti );
                }while( (hti = GetNextSiblingItem( hti )) != NULL );
        }
        EnsureVisible( GetSelectedItem() );
}

  • How do I check if the branch is expanded?

    void MyTreeCtrl::ExpandAll(HTREEITEM item, UINT nCode=TVE_EXPAND, bool siblings=false)

    if (item!=NULL)
    {
    Expand(item,nCode);
    ExpandAll(GetChildItem(item),nCode,true);
    if (siblings) ExpandAll(GetNextSiblingItem(item),nCode,true);
    }
    }

  • Expanding/Collapsing with numeric pad

    It seems to be a Tree Ctrl UI standard feature:

    Keyboard "*","+" on numeric pad allow to expand the branch
    under the selected item.
    Keyboard "-" on numeric pad allow to collapse the branch under the selected item.

    void CTreeCtrlEx::ExpandBranch(HTREEITEM hItem)
    {
    HTREEITEM hSelectItem=GetSelectedItem();

    SelectItem(hItem);
    SendMessage(WM_KEYDOWN,VK_MULTIPLY);

    if (hSelectItem==NULL)
    hSelectItem=GetRootItem();
    EnsureVisible(hSelectItem);
    SelectItem(hSelectItem);
    }

  • How about change like this?

    I think the bellow code occurs some problem when hti is NULL
    
    

    => if( ItemHasChildren( hti ) ){

    Because hti may be NULL if The tree has not Child Item

    => hti = GetChildItem(hti);


    So, How about rewrite the code like bellow

    // ExpandBranch - Expands a branch completely
    // hti - Handle of the tree item to expand
    void CTreeCtrlX::ExpandBranch( HTREEITEM hti )
    {
    => if( ItemHasChildren( hti ) && hti != NULL){
    Expand( hti, TVE_EXPAND );
    hti = GetChildItem( hti );
    do{
    ExpandBranch( hti );
    }while( (hti = GetNextSiblingItem( hti )) !
    = NULL );
    }
    EnsureVisible( GetSelectedItem() );
    }

  • Memory fault!!

    Because my TreeCtrl has so many tree item. So, Windows98's memory overflowed. I think so.

    Then, how can I solve this problem?

    Thank you for reading..
