C++/RTL CTreeCtlr


hi, am trying to flip the CTreeCtrl to be from right to left. i looked in the MSDN and fround that i have to change the style to TVS_RTLREADING but i dont know how, where and which function to use.
thanks for ur time and if u have any other advices i'll be glade to know
best regards

Ahmad , Thank you for your question.

To set a Tree View Control style, either set it using the Resource Editor or from your program in your CTreeCtrl::Create function call.

Unfortunately, I have no experience with right-to-left text handling.
