Get next item in outline

Imagine that the outline is completely expanded. Pressing the down key will take you down on line to the next item. Now imagine that instead of expanding the outline and pressing the down key, you want to get to the items in the same sequence programmatically. Although the CTreeView control provides a GetNextItem() function, it does not provide direct support for our needs. Listed below is an overloaded version of GetNextItem() taking a single argument. Before we actually look at the function lets first look at the declaration of the function in the CTreeView derived class.
 
        HTREEITEM GetNextItem( HTREEITEM hItem, UINT nCode ){
                return CTreeCtrl::GetNextItem( hItem, nCode );
        }
        HTREEITEM GetNextItem( HTREEITEM hItem);
It is important that we override the original function taking two arguments otherwise our new version of the function will hide it. Now here is the listing of the overloaded GetNextItem() function.
 
// GetNextItem  - Get next item as if outline was completely expanded
// Returns      - The item immediately below the reference item
// hItem        - The reference item
HTREEITEM CTreeCtrlX::GetNextItem( HTREEITEM hItem )
{
        HTREEITEM       hti;

        if( ItemHasChildren( hItem ) )
                return GetChildItem( hItem );           // return first child
        else{
                // return next sibling item
                // Go up the tree to find a parent's sibling if needed.
                while( (hti = GetNextSiblingItem( hItem )) == NULL ){
                        if( (hItem = GetParentItem( hItem ) ) == NULL )
                                return NULL;
                }
        }
        return hti;
}

    I found that it was possible for the tree to return ItemHasChildren true, but GetChildItem returned zero,
    causing the walk to stop partway through the tree.  Here's a version which does this case right:
    
    

    HTREEITEM CSTreeCtrl::GetNextItem(HTREEITEM hItem)
    {
    HTREEITEM hti = NULL;

    if (m_ctrl->ItemHasChildren(hItem))
    hti = m_ctrl->GetChildItem(hItem);

    if (hti == NULL) {
    while ((hti = m_ctrl->GetNextSiblingItem(hItem)) == NULL) {
    if ((hItem = m_ctrl->GetParentItem(hItem)) == NULL)
    return NULL;
    }
    }
    return hti;
    }
