Adding Full Paths to a TreeView

Have you ever wanted to add nodes to a TreeView control using a full path instead of adding a node at a time? You can do it with this code:
 
Public Sub AddPathToTree(Tree As TreeView, Path As String)
	Dim PathItem As String
	Dim NewItem As String
	Dim PathLen As Integer
	Dim c As String * 1
	Dim i As Integer

	'ADD A BACKSLASH AS A TERMINATOR
	If Right$(Path, 1) <> "\" Then Path = Path & "\"

	PathLen = Len(Path)

	'RUN THROUGH THE PATH LOOKING FOR BACKSLASHES
	For i = 1 To PathLen
		c = Mid$(Path, i, 1)

		If c = "\" Then
			If PathItem = "" Then
				'ADD THE ROOT ITEM TO THE TREE
				On Error Resume Next
				Tree.Nodes.Add , , "\" & NewItem, NewItem
				PathItem = "\" & NewItem
			Else
				'ADD THE NEXT CHILD TO THE TREE
				Tree.Nodes.Add PathItem, tvwChild, PathItem _
					& "\" & NewItem, NewItem
				PathItem = PathItem & "\" & NewItem
			End If
			NewItem = ""100
		Else
			NewItem = NewItem & c
		End If
	Next i
End Sub
Simply call this routine passing the TreeView control and the full path as parameters. All the necessary nodes will be added if they don't already exist:
 
	AddPathToTree TreeView1, _
		"RootLevel\Child1\Child2\Child3\Child4"
