Examples

The following example shows how to set the IsExpanded property.

<TreeViewItem Header="Employee1"
              Name="Employee1Data" 
              IsExpanded="True" 
              Collapsed="OnCollapsed" 
              Expanded="OnExpanded">
  <TreeViewItem Header="Work Days" 
                Name="EmployeeWorkDays"
                IsSelected="True">
    <TreeViewItem Header="Tuesday" />
    <TreeViewItem Header="Friday"/>
  </TreeViewItem>
</TreeViewItem>
<TreeViewItem Header="Employee2" 
              Name="Employee2Data">
  <TreeViewItem Header="Work Days" 
                Name="emp2WorkDays" 
                Selected="GetSchedule"
                Unselected="SetSchedule">
    <TreeViewItem Header="Monday" />
    <TreeViewItem Header="Wednesday"/>
  </TreeViewItem>
</TreeViewItem>
Employee1Data.IsExpanded = true;
Employee1Data.IsExpanded = True

Remarks

The appearance of the button that expands and collapses the TreeViewItem changes when the TreeViewItem is expanded or collapsed. When the IsExpanded property value changes from true to false, the Collapsed event occurs. Similarly, the Expanded event occurs when the IsExpanded property value changes from false to true.
