Tick-boxes ungray themselves if I change their state, I have fixed the problem mainly by moving all the bitmaps up by one, and some fixes to the code. anywone want it, just mail me. I am mailing it to author:JP Naughter.
I did not like the "edit-box" and combo-box mechanism, and instead put the edit control just below the tree, with a prompt, this is less messy, since the edit-box sometimes appears chopped off if the tree is wide, + the tree's own tooltip gets in the way!!!
I also have a problem with parent window notification, but worked around it in a nasty way, using sendmessage to the control parent since the parent dialog never got the TVN_SELCHANGED, and I wanted it in the parent, messy way to do lots of NOTIFY messages. MFC is at fault this time I know.

Always do badly to start off, that way when you get the hang of it suddenly, everyone is surprised.
I'd suggest you pull down the latest version from my web site at www.naughter.com as there has been numerous updates since I posted this article to codeproject (27 updates in fact since it was posted on codeproject).
