Get last item in branch


In my programming, I have often had to derive the last item in a branch. In fact some of the other topics I cover, uses this function to get the last item in the branch.
 
// GetLastItem  - Gets last item in the branch
// Returns      - Last item
// hItem        - Node identifying the branch. NULL will 
//                return the last item in outine
HTREEITEM CTreeCtrlX::GetLastItem( HTREEITEM hItem )
{
        // Last child of the last child of the last child ...
        HTREEITEM htiNext;

        if( hItem == NULL ){
                // Get the last item at the top level
                htiNext = GetRootItem();
                while( htiNext ){
                        hItem = htiNext;
                        htiNext = GetNextSiblingItem( htiNext );
                }
        }

        while( ItemHasChildren( hItem ) ){
                htiNext = GetChildItem( hItem );
                while( htiNext ){
                        hItem = htiNext;
                        htiNext = GetNextSiblingItem( htiNext );
                }
        }

        return hItem;
}

  • Little problem ???

    Please correct me if I'm wrong or if I am not using this method correctly.

    If I am searching for a string in the tree and this string is
    currently selected, the method will return NULL.

    Should I check before I call the method ?

    Here is what I did to correct it:

    // For the first pass, set the current item equal to the selection
    HTREEITEM htiSel = hItem ? hItem : GetSelectedItem();
    HTREEITEM htiCur = htiSel;

    ...
    ...
    // For the first pass only, we check to see if it
    // is the item we're looking for.
    BOOL bFirstPass = TRUE;

    while( htiCur && (htiCur != htiSel || bFirstPass) )
    {
    bFirstPass = FALSE;
    ...
    ...
    ...
    }

    ...
    ...
    ...

    Please, tell me if you have a better way to do it.
