Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the BorderStyle enumeration and the TreeView.BorderStyle, TreeView.HideSelection and the TreeView.ShowRootLines properties. To run this example, paste the following code in a form and call the InitializeTreeView method in the form's constructor or Load method.

   // Declare the TreeView control.
internal:
   System::Windows::Forms::TreeView^ TreeView1;

private:
   // Initialize the TreeView to blend with the form, giving it the 
   // same color as the form and no border.
   void InitializeTreeView()
   {
      // Create a new TreeView control and set the location and size.
      this->TreeView1 = gcnew System::Windows::Forms::TreeView;
      this->TreeView1->Location = System::Drawing::Point( 72, 48 );
      this->TreeView1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 200, 200 );

      // Set the BorderStyle property to none, the BackColor property to  
      // the form's backcolor, and the Scrollable property to false.  
      // This allows the TreeView to blend in form.
      this->TreeView1->BorderStyle = BorderStyle::None;
      this->TreeView1->BackColor = this->BackColor;
      this->TreeView1->Scrollable = false;

      // Set the HideSelection property to false to keep the 
      // selection highlighted when the user leaves the control. 
      // This helps it blend with form.
      this->TreeView1->HideSelection = false;

      // Set the ShowRootLines and ShowLines properties to false to 
      // give the TreeView a list-like appearance.
      this->TreeView1->ShowRootLines = false;
      this->TreeView1->ShowLines = false;

      // Add the nodes.
      array<TreeNode^>^temp0 = {gcnew TreeNode( "Full Color" ),gcnew TreeNode( "Project Wizards" ),gcnew TreeNode( "Visual C# and Visual Basic Support" )};
      array<TreeNode^>^temp1 = {gcnew TreeNode( "Pentium 133 MHz or faster processor " ),gcnew TreeNode( "Windows 98 or later" ),gcnew TreeNode( "100 MB Disk space" )};
      array<TreeNode^>^temp2 = {gcnew TreeNode( "Features",temp0 ),gcnew TreeNode( "System Requirements",temp1 )};
      this->TreeView1->Nodes->AddRange( temp2 );

      // Set the tab index and add the TreeView to the form.
      this->TreeView1->TabIndex = 0;
      this->Controls->Add( this->TreeView1 );
   }

Remarks

Use the members of this enumeration to set the border style for controls that have a changeable border.
