Examples

The following code example displays customer information in a TreeView control. The root tree nodes display customer names, and the child tree nodes display the order numbers assigned to each customer. In this example, 1,000 customers are displayed with 15 orders each. The repainting of the TreeView is suppressed by using the BeginUpdate and EndUpdate methods, and a wait Cursor is displayed while the TreeView creates and paints the TreeNode objects. This example requires that you have a Customer object that can hold a collection of Order objects. It also requires that you have created an instance of a TreeView control on a Form.

Remarks

The Add, Remove, and RemoveAt methods enable you to add and remove individual tree nodes from the collection.

Note

Enumerating the collection and removing nodes is not supported.

You can also use the AddRange or Clear methods to add or remove all the tree nodes from the collection.

Classes cannot inherit from the TreeNodeCollection class.
