            <folder name="some text"><!-- show as child Node -->

                    <file name="some text" date="some text" size="some text"><!-- show 'name' attribute as child Node, show 'date' and 'size' as Column -->
                    <content>some text</content><!-- show in TextBox when parent file selected (I think this is easy for me to do -->

    Here is an example using treeview. To test you will need a form with a button, label, and treeview

    Code:
        Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            Dim file As XElement '= XElement.Load("path here") 'to load from file
            'file as testdata
            'remove file = if loading from a file
            file = <drives>
                       <drive name="C:\"><!-- show as root Node -->
                           <folder name="folder1"><!-- show as child Node -->
                               <folder name="folder1.1"><!-- show as child Node -->
                                   <file name="file1" date="some text" size="some text"><!-- show 'name' attribute as child Node, show 'date' and 'size' as Column -->
                                       <content>some text1</content><!-- show in TextBox when parent file selected (I think this is easy for me to do -->

    Re: TreeListView and XML

    Thanks for your answer, unfortunately it is not what i want, i'm talking about ObjectListView (see link in first post), the source code contains an example how to use TreeListView but with file system.

    After some analysis i found that the demo TreeListView uses a class named MyFileSystemInfo to read the file system, what i exactly want is how to make MyFileSystemInfo reads XML file (like the one described above) instead of file system.

    Subscribing... maybe if I get bored later I'll take a crack at it. Can't be all that hard.
