<alert comment="newbie"> For a prospective freeware app, I've been attempting to get the Win32 native TreeView widget to work. The current phobos std.c.windows.windows.d only includes support for the basic widgets (buttons, text fields, checkboxes, etc.) I started with winsamp.d, and "cloned" std.c.windows.windows.d to windows_tree.d. This file defines the constants and structures to make calls to the Win32 api for creating and handling the native TreeView control. Eureka, it is starting to actually work ... Except ... for me but not everyone. Sigh. Another person is having problems getting winsamp3.exe to run. JCC experiences the error message noting that the "ChapSelectorTree was not created" which indicates that the call to std.c.windows.windows.CreateWindowA failed. winsamp3.exe is a 75kb file that should be self-contained except for calls to msvcrt.dll and gui32.dll. It runs fine on three of my home computers, including Xp-Home and Win2000 (one of which is a test computer with not much beyond a baseline installation). Has anyone had success or problems getting the winsamp.d code to work [comes with dmd download]? There is more description of the problem and a link to the Visual Studio 98 project at: http://dsource.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=351 http://berbible.sourceforge.net/misc/DmdTreeView.zip We would greatly appreciate it if someone would download the above and attempt to invoke winsamp3.exe. The zip file contains winsamp3.exe, as well as winsamp3.d, [dmd_install-dir]\src\phobos\std\c\windows\windows_tree.d, winsamp3.def, winsamp3.dsw, and winsamp3.dsp Did I do something wrong, or leave out something? </alert>

I think I discovered the problem: InitCommonControls() should be called. I presented details of my solution at dsource: http://www.dsource.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=2219#2219 -- Justin (a/k/a jcc7) http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/
