TreeViewCancelEventArgs.Node Property

Definition

Gets the tree node to be checked, expanded, collapsed, or selected.

public:
 property System::Windows::Forms::TreeNode ^ Node { System::Windows::Forms::TreeNode ^ get(); };
public System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode Node { get; }
member this.Node : System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode
Public ReadOnly Property Node As TreeNode

Property Value

TreeNode

The TreeNode to be checked, expanded, collapsed, or selected.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to change the collapse state of a TreeView so that all the checked nodes are visible. First, all the nodes are collapsed, and a handler is added to the TreeView.BeforeExpand event. Next, all the nodes are expanded. The TreeView.BeforeExpand event handler determines whether a given node has child nodes that are checked. If a node does not have checked children, the expansion is canceled for that node. In order to allow normal node expansion when the plus sign next to a node is clicked, the TreeView.BeforeExpand event handler is then removed.

This behavior can also be implemented by handling the TreeView.BeforeCollapse event, as illustrated in the example for that topic.

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