    First let me say I'm new to the the product and this forum, so if I make a mistake or ask a dumb question, please be gentle.

    I just upgraded to version 5.5 and then followed the Web instructions for downloading and installing the ControlsEx library. I opened a new project, created a blank new form and saved it. I copied the sample code from the TreeView help, replacing the default code you get with a new project.

    Running the program, I receive:

    Error compiling program,
    Error description: tv is not a nown control or object.
    Occurred on line: 10
    tv.New1("Form1", 5, 10, 200, 200)

    I'm sure I'm missing something simple here. Thanks in advance for your wise counsel.

    There are two things you should first do:
    1. Add the ControlsEx library to your project: Tools - Components - Add Both - ControlsEx.dll
    2. Add a TreeView control named tv: Tools - Add Object - TreeView - tv
    See this page for more information about external libraries: http://www.basic4ppc.com/help/externallibraries.html

    Erel,

    Thanks again for your quick response. I had added the component, but missed the add object. I also figured out that I had to add node objects as well. Can objects (i.e., new nodes) be added at runtime?

    Again, thanks

    Yes, using the AddObject keyword.
