TreeNodeStates Enum

Definition

Defines constants that represent the possible states of a TreeNode.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

Fields

Checked 8

The node is checked.

Default 32

The node is in its default state.

Focused 16

The node has focus.

Grayed 2

The node is disabled.

Hot 64

The node is hot. This state occurs when the HotTracking property is set to true and the mouse pointer is over the node.

Indeterminate 256

The node in an indeterminate state.

Marked 128

The node is marked.

Selected 1

The node is selected.

ShowKeyboardCues 512

The node should indicate a keyboard shortcut.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to customize a TreeView control using owner drawing. The TreeView control in the example displays optional node tags alongside the normal node labels. Node tags are specified using the TreeNode.Tag property. The TreeView control also uses custom colors, including a custom highlight color.

You can customize most of the TreeView colors by setting color properties, but the selection highlight color is not available as a property. Additionally, the default selection highlight rectangle extends only around a node label. Owner drawing must be used to draw the node tags and to draw a customized highlight rectangle large enough to include a node tag.

In the example, a handler for the TreeView.DrawNode event draws unselected nodes by calling methods of the DrawTreeNodeEventArgs class. These methods provide the default appearance for TreeView elements that do not need customization. The handler draws the node tags and the custom selection highlight manually.

For the complete example, see the TreeView.DrawNode reference topic.

   // Draws a node.
private:
   void myTreeView_DrawNode( Object^ sender, DrawTreeNodeEventArgs^ e )

      // Draw the background and node text for a selected node.

      {
         // Draw the background of the selected node. The NodeBounds
         // method makes the highlight rectangle large enough to
         // include the text of a node tag, if one is present.
         e->Graphics->FillRectangle( Brushes::Green, NodeBounds( e->Node ) );

         // Retrieve the node font. If the node font has not been set,
         // use the TreeView font.
         System::Drawing::Font^ nodeFont = e->Node->NodeFont;
         if ( nodeFont == nullptr )
                  nodeFont = (dynamic_cast<TreeView^>(sender))->Font;

         // Draw the node text.
         e->Graphics->DrawString( e->Node->Text, nodeFont, Brushes::White, Rectangle::Inflate( e->Bounds, 2, 0 ) );
