Hello everyone.
Can anyone give a link to a good guide/tutorial on how to populate a treeview with the drives of a system. I am able to get the drives listed, but am i having a problem creating the child nodes for the drives and really have never used a tree view before. Any info is appreciated.

Below is what i have tried ( just to show my attempt). i know its wrong, so any tutorials or advice is appreciated.

Imports System.IO
Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        With tvDrives

            .BeginUpdate()
            For Each dr As DriveInfo In DriveInfo.GetDrives()
                .Nodes.Add(dr.Name)

            Next

            .EndUpdate()
        End With

    End Sub

    Private Sub tvDrives_AfterSelect(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.TreeViewEventArgs) Handles tvDrives.AfterSelect

        With tvDrives

            For Each dr As DriveInfo In DriveInfo.GetDrives()

                Dim dir As New DirectoryInfo(dr.Name) ' i want to try and use the selected node, but i am having trouble figuring this out and i just used this instead to make it work temporarily.

                .ShowPlusMinus = True

                For Each d As DirectoryInfo In Dir.GetDirectories()
                    Dim count As Integer = 0
                    .Nodes(count).Nodes.Add(d.Name)
                    count += 1
                Next

            Next

        End With

    End Sub
End Class

Look, you reached to very good phase.. what you need is to know how to go through nested directories. I believe you can do it on your own.

I Fully Agree Here... Learning Nested Directories Is an absolute must.

Thanks for the link and the encouragement. I will keep working on it hard. Thanks!
