Examples

The following example illustrates a customized TreeView. By inheriting the TreeView class, this custom version has all the functionality of a normal TreeView. Changing various property values in the constructor provides a unique appearance. Because the ShowPlusMinus property is set to false, the customized control also overrides the OnAfterSelect method so nodes can be expanded and collapsed when they are clicked.

A control that is customized in this way can be used throughout an organization, making it easy to provide a consistent interface without requiring the control properties to be specified in each individual project.

public ref class CustomizedTreeView: public TreeView
{
public:
   CustomizedTreeView()
   {

      // Customize the TreeView control by setting various properties.
      BackColor = System::Drawing::Color::CadetBlue;
      FullRowSelect = true;
      HotTracking = true;
      Indent = 34;
      ShowPlusMinus = false;

      // The ShowLines property must be false for the FullRowSelect
      // property to work.
      ShowLines = false;
   }

protected:
   virtual void OnAfterSelect( TreeViewEventArgs^ e ) override
   {
      // Confirm that the user initiated the selection.
      // This prevents the first node from expanding when it is
      // automatically selected during the initialization of
      // the TreeView control.
      if ( e->Action != TreeViewAction::Unknown )
      {
         if ( e->Node->IsExpanded )
         {
            e->Node->Collapse();
         }
         else
         {
            e->Node->Expand();
         }
      }

      
      // Remove the selection. This allows the same node to be
      // clicked twice in succession to toggle the expansion state.
      SelectedNode = nullptr;
   }

        FullRowSelect = true;
        HotTracking = true;
        Indent = 34;
        ShowPlusMinus = false;

        // The ShowLines property must be false for the FullRowSelect 
        // property to work.
        ShowLines = false;
    }

    protected override void OnAfterSelect(TreeViewEventArgs e)
    {
        // Confirm that the user initiated the selection.
        // This prevents the first node from expanding when it is
        // automatically selected during the initialization of 
        // the TreeView control.
        if (e.Action != TreeViewAction.Unknown)
        {
            if (e.Node.IsExpanded) 
            {
