    perhaps I discovered a new bug:
    I have a tree_ctrl on a dialog and if you do this

    wnd<tree_ctrl> tree = child<tree_ctrl> (IDC_TREE_FOLDER);   

    everything is ok and I'm happy :-).
    but if you do this

    wnd<tree_ctrl> tree = child<tree_ctrl> (IDC_TREE_FOLDER);   

    it should first delete all items and the insert a new rootitem but you can't see the item's text! I checked the TVM_-messages with the spy and the tree indeed receives all the necessary messages.

    can you check this please or am I doing something wrong?

      another bug related to tree_ctrl:

      string item_text = item(hItem, TVIF_TEXT).text();

      will give you the text of the item, BUT what's really annoying is that the string is something like this (i put some hex after the readable string):

      "some_text" 00 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 ....

      you know what i mean...the string is 128 chars long and you can't just do
      item_text += "some_string_to_append";

      you would first have to strip the garbage away which is annoying. responsible for this is this function:

      template<class result_type, class self_type> void get_item_ex(result_type & result, const self_type & self, UINT msg, WPARAM wparam, int text_tag) {
              if ( result.m_raw.mask & text_tag)

                  result.m_text.resize(128, ' ');  // <-- this line!

      here's the fix:

      string::size_type null_pos = result.m_text.find('\0');
      result.m_text.erase(null_pos, string::npos);

      at the end of the
      "if ( result.m_raw.mask & hd_item::text_tag) {"-block

        I'm not sure about this.

        I took another look at the code, and I think it's ok.
        I even tried some simple code, and it works as expected.

        Could you give me an example when my code fails?

          it fails everytime...look, i write this code

          wnd<tree_ctrl> tree = child<tree_ctrl> (IDC_FOLDER_TREE);
          string strPath = tree->item(hItem, TVIF_TEXT).text();
          strPath += "\\test.txt";

          the \\test.txt will indeed be appended to the string, BUT after the 00 20 20 20 20 20 20 .... and that's not the expected behaviour.

          i'm using the STL coming with vc++ toolkit 2003

      Yup, you're right - it's a but of the treectrl alright (that is M$'s bug)

      Check out:

      So, you can do something like this:


      Also, I've updated my code, so in v1.5 it'll happen by default.
