BOOL TreeView_GetItem( 
pitem );


  • hwnd
    Handle to the tree view control.

    Pointer to a TVITEM structure that specifies the information to retrieve and receives information about the item. When the TVM_GETITEM message is sent, the hItem member identifies the item to retrieve information about, and the mask member specifies the attributes to retrieve.

    If the mask member specifies the TVIF_TEXT value, the pszText member must contain the address of the buffer that receives the item text and the cchTextMax member must specify the size of the buffer.

    If the mask member specifies the TVIF_STATE value, the stateMask member must specify the item state bits to retrieve. On output, the state member contains the values of the specified state bits.

Return Values

TRUE indicates success. FALSE indicates failure.
