Remarks

The SelectedNodeChanged event is raised when a node is selected in the TreeView control. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as updating the displayed content, whenever this event occurs.

You can optionally set the SelectAction property for a node to specify which event is raised when that node is selected. The following table lists the available options.

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

Note

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

The SelectedNodeChanged event is fired only on post back when a user clicks a node. The event is not fired if the SelectedNode property is changed programmatically.

For more information about how to handle events, see Handling and Raising Events.
