Remarks

To provide multi-node selection support in the TreeView control, you can display check boxes next to the image for a node. Use the ShowCheckBoxes property to specify which node types will display a check box. For example, if this property is set to TreeNodeType.Parent, check boxes are displayed for each parent node in the tree. The following table lists the valid values for this property.

Node type Description
TreeNodeType.All Check boxes are displayed for all nodes.
TreeNodeType.Leaf Check boxes are displayed for all leaf nodes.
TreeNodeType.None Check boxes are not displayed.
TreeNodeType.Parent Check boxes are displayed for all parent nodes.
TreeNodeType.Root Check boxes are displayed for all root nodes.

The enumeration type that is used for the ShowCheckBoxes property is a flag enumeration, which allows you to combine values through bitwise operations. For example, to display check boxes for the parent and leaf nodes, use the bitwise OR operator to combine the TreeNodeType.Parent and TreeNodeType.Leaf values.

To determine which nodes have their check box selected, iterate through the nodes of the CheckedNodes collection.

Note

You can override the ShowCheckBoxes setting by setting the ShowCheckBox property for each node.

If you need to provide only single-selection support, consider using the SelectedNode property.

The value of this property is stored in view state.
