Remarks

The text of a node in the TreeView control can be in one of two modes: selection mode or navigation mode. By default, a node is in selection mode. To put a node into navigation mode, set the node's NavigateUrl property to a value other than an empty string (""). To put a node into selection mode, set the node's NavigateUrl property to an empty string.

Note

When a node is in navigation mode, selection events are disabled for that node. Clicking a node will direct the user to the specified URL, rather than posting the page back to the server and raising an event.

When a node is in selection mode, use the SelectAction property to specify which event or events are raised when a node is selected. The following table lists the available options.

Selection action Description
TreeNodeSelectAction.Expand Toggles the node between expanded and collapsed. Raises the TreeNodeExpanded event or the TreeNodeCollapsed event as appropriate.
TreeNodeSelectAction.None Raises no events when a node is selected.
TreeNodeSelectAction.Select Raises the SelectedNodeChanged event when a node is selected.
TreeNodeSelectAction.SelectExpand Raises both the SelectedNodeChanged and the TreeNodeExpanded events when a node is selected. Nodes are only expanded, never collapsed.

Note

The HoverNodeStyle property is not rendered for a node with its SelectAction property set to TreeNodeSelectAction.None.

The value of this property is stored in view state.
