A CWaitingTreeCtrl-derived class to display network resources.

Sample Image - sample.gif

CNetworkTreeCtrl

This is just an example of a content provider class (see the article CWaitingTreeCtrl), which overrides the PopulateItem virtual function to show network resources only when the user wants to access them.

You may specify the network resource to be used as the root of the tree control, as well as what kind of resources to be shown in the last level. You may also get specific information about the network resource associated with an existing item. To communicate with the class you can use the standard NETRESOURCE structure and related flags.

User interface features are those offered by the base class and can be further personalized with custom animations.

Class Reference

CNetworkTreeCtrl::RefreshNetworkRoot
BOOL RefreshNetworkRoot(LPNETRESOURCE pRoot, DWORD dwStopAtDisplayType =
                                                  RESOURCEDISPLAYTYPE_GENERIC)

It associates a network resource with the root item and refreshes the tree items in the first level. It also sets what kind of container resources must not be further enumerated.

The first argument pRoot is the address of the network resource you want as the root of the tree control. A value of NULL means the network root.

The dwStopAtDisplayType argument could take the same values as the dwDisplayType field of the NETRESOURCE structure. It specifies the last level of network resources that will be visible in the tree control.

The return value is TRUE if you specified a valid resource, FALSE otherwise.

CNetworkTreeCtrl::GetItemResource
BOOL GetItemResource(HTREEITEM hItem, LPNETRESOURCE pNr)

It retrieves the network resource associated to the specified item. If successful, the return value is TRUE and the structure pointed by pNr contains valid data, otherwise the return value is FALSE.

Conclusion

Please note that this class is not fully functional. So far, it can be used only in a dialog, but I will work on it when I have more time. I released this version to provide an example of a content provider for my CWaitingTreeCtrl class (see the article).

Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated. I plan to use this control in a new version of our NetSend utility, see this. Also, the latest beta releases of this class could be found here, for test only purpose.
