Hi All,

I am using the following code to populate a tree control. The dictionary currently I am using is ‘dictFolders’ and its structure is defined below.

lstFolders=[]
lstFolders = ["A","B","C","D"]
dictFolders={}
dictFolders = {"A":["Obj1","Obj2","Obj3","Obj4","Obj5","Obj6","Obj7","Obj8","Obj9"],
"B":["Doc1","Doc2","Doc3","Doc4","Doc5","Doc6","Doc7","Doc8","Doc9"],
"C":["Link1","Link2","Link3","Link4","Link5","Link6"],
"D":["Obj1","Obj2","Obj3","Obj4","Obj5","Obj6","Obj7"]}


# Setting the root node text to the Action ID entered
self.treeAction.SetItemText(self.treeAction.GetRootItem(),”Parent Folder Name”)


# Loop to Populate the tree containing Action Objects
print "length of dictFolders=", len(dictFolders)
for intIndex in range (0,len(dictFolders)):


#If tree control does not have any children then append Items
if self.treeAction.ItemHasChildren(nodeFolders[intIndex])==False:


for intiLoopIndex in range (0,len(dictFolders[lstFolders[intIndex]])):
self.treeAction.AppendItem(nodeFolders[intIndex],(dictFolders[lstFolders[intIndex]][intiLoopIndex]))
self.treeAction.ExpandAllChildren(nodeFolders[intIndex])


# Collapsing all children after populating
for intIndex in range(0,len(dictFolders.keys())):
self.treeAction.CollapseAllChildren(nodeFolders[intIndex])

Now I want to implement the same with a new dictionary whose structure is given below:

dictFoldersNew = {"A":{"XYZ": [["Name1", "UID1"], ["Name2", "UID2"]],
"PLM": [["Number1", "UUID1"], ["Number2", "UID2"]],
"RST": [["ID1", "UUID1"], ["ID2", "UID2"]]},
"B": [["IDB1", "UID1"], ["IDB2", "UID2"]],
"C": [["IDC1", "UID1"], ["IDC2", "UID2"]],
"D": [["IDD1", "UID1"], ["IDD2", "UID2"]]}

I want a second level of folders under A and the rest of the structure should remain the same. Under XYZ, PLM and RST I want to display UID1,Number1 and ID1 respectively. And under B,C and D, I want to display (IDB1,IDB2),( IDC1,IDC2). IDD1,IDD2) respectively.
How can I do this?... Presently I am unable to understand the new dictionary format.
Any help is much appreciated.

Regards,
Dinil

Sorry that I forgot to put tags to the code

lstFolders=[]
lstFolders = ["A","B","C","D"]
dictFolders={}
dictFolders = {"A":["Obj1","Obj2","Obj3","Obj4","Obj5","Obj6","Obj7","Obj8","Obj9"],
"B":["Doc1","Doc2","Doc3","Doc4","Doc5","Doc6","Doc7","Doc8","Doc9"],
"C":["Link1","Link2","Link3","Link4","Link5","Link6"],
"D":["Obj1","Obj2","Obj3","Obj4","Obj5","Obj6","Obj7"]}

# Setting the root node text to the Action ID entered
self.treeAction.SetItemText(self.treeAction.GetRootItem(),”Parent Folder Name”)

# Loop to Populate the tree containing Action Objects
print "length of dictFolders=", len(dictFolders)
for intIndex in range (0,len(dictFolders)):

#If tree control does not have any children then append Items
if self.treeAction.ItemHasChildren(nodeFolders[intIndex])==False:

for intiLoopIndex in range (0,len(dictFolders[lstFolders[intIndex]])):
self.treeAction.AppendItem(nodeFolders[intIndex],(dictFolders[lstFolders[intIndex]][intiLoopIndex]))
self.treeAction.ExpandAllChildren(nodeFolders[intIndex])

# Collapsing all children after populating
for intIndex in range(0,len(dictFolders.keys())):
self.treeAction.CollapseAllChildren(nodeFolders[intIndex])
Now I want to implement the same with a new dictionary whose structure is given below:
dictFoldersNew = {"A":{"XYZ": [["Name1", "UID1"], ["Name2", "UID2"]],
"PLM": [["Number1", "UUID1"], ["Number2", "UID2"]],
"RST": [["ID1", "UUID1"], ["ID2", "UID2"]]},
"B": [["IDB1", "UID1"], ["IDB2", "UID2"]],
"C": [["IDC1", "UID1"], ["IDC2", "UID2"]],
"D": [["IDD1", "UID1"], ["IDD2", "UID2"]]}

can you put your code in tags? I have failed to reconstruct exactly what you wrote and I gave up. Until I see your code, I will try figure out!

Thanks
Steve

The easiest way to understand it is to break each part down and give it a separate variable name.

You want to get away from the word processing thought pattern, where you have lines in documents in folders. None of that really exists. With programming you have one continuous stream of bytes, either in memory or on disk. Then you have pointers to the memory/disk location. So, you want to access the pointer to "A" and access the bytes at that location which gives the pointer to "XYZ", or on disk you want to access the pointer to the directory ('directs' you to a certain location), and then the pointer to a certain file, etc. The problem is viewing this data as discrete "lines in a document in a folder" instead of as a continuous stream of bytes which you have to subdivide and organize.

Hi All... Thanks for helping me out. Actually broke the new dictionary format and made the structure same as the old one. This is working perfectly fine for me.
Thanks again....
