VB TreeView - TreeView Control in Visual Basic 6

The purpose of a TreeView control is to display information in a hierarchy. A TreeView is made up of nodes that are related to each other in some way. Users can look at information, or objects, presented in a TreeView control and quickly determine how those objects are bound together.

Figure 4.4 shows a good example of TreeView in the Windows Explorer. The left side of Explorer shows information about drives in a hierarchical layout. Explorer starts its tree with a node called Desktop. From there you can see several nodes indented below the Desktop node. The indentation and the lines connecting nodes show that the My Computer node is a child of the Desktop node. My Computer also has children—the A: drive, C: drive, and so on. Children of the same parent are often referred to as siblings. The A: drive and B: drive, for example, both have My Computer as a parent and are called siblings.

The TreeView control is available as part of the Common Controls component in Visual Basic. You can use the TreeView anytime that you need to display data to a user as a hierarchy.
