TreeView.ImageList Property

Definition

Gets or sets the ImageList that contains the Image objects that are used by the tree nodes.

public:
 property System::Windows::Forms::ImageList ^ ImageList { System::Windows::Forms::ImageList ^ get(); void set(System::Windows::Forms::ImageList ^ value); };
public System.Windows.Forms.ImageList ImageList { get; set; }
member this.ImageList : System.Windows.Forms.ImageList with get, set
Public Property ImageList As ImageList

Property Value

The ImageList that contains the Image objects that are used by the tree nodes. The default value is null.

Examples

The following code example creates and assigns an ImageList to a TreeView control and fills the TreeView control with TreeNode objects. The tree nodes are assigned images from the ImageList that are displayed when in a selected or unselected state. This example requires that you have a Form that contains a TreeView, and an ArrayList that contains Customer objects that each contain Order objects.

ref class Customer
{
public:
   ArrayList^ CustomerOrders;
   String^ CustomerName;
   Customer( String^ myName )
   {
      CustomerName = myName;
      CustomerOrders = gcnew ArrayList;
   }

};

ref class Order
{
public:
   String^ OrderID;
   Order( String^ myOrderID )
   {
      this->OrderID = myOrderID;
   }

};

   void FillTreeView()
   {
      
      // Load the images in an ImageList.
      ImageList^ myImageList = gcnew ImageList;
      myImageList->Images->Add( Image::FromFile( "Default.gif" ) );
      myImageList->Images->Add( Image::FromFile( "SelectedDefault.gif" ) );
      myImageList->Images->Add( Image::FromFile( "Root.gif" ) );
      myImageList->Images->Add( Image::FromFile( "UnselectedCustomer.gif" ) );

Remarks

If the ImageList property value is anything other than null, all the tree nodes display the first Image stored in the ImageList. You can specify which images from the list are displayed for selected and unselected nodes by setting the ImageIndex and SelectedImageIndex properties. Individual TreeNode objects can specify which image is displayed by setting their ImageIndex and SelectedImageIndex properties. These individual settings will override the settings in the corresponding TreeView properties.

Note

In the .NET Framework version 1.1, there is an issue that prevents images from appearing on TreeView nodes when your application calls Application.EnableVisualStyles. To work around this issue, call Application.DoEvents in your Main method immediately after you call EnableVisualStyles. This issue is fixed in the .NET Framework 2.0.
