TreeView.GetNodeAt Method

Definition

Retrieves the tree node that is at the specified location.

Overloads

GetNodeAt(Point)

Retrieves the tree node that is at the specified point.

GetNodeAt(Int32, Int32)

Retrieves the tree node at the point with the specified coordinates.

GetNodeAt(Point)

Retrieves the tree node that is at the specified point.

public:
 System::Windows::Forms::TreeNode ^ GetNodeAt(System::Drawing::Point pt);
public System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode GetNodeAt (System.Drawing.Point pt);
member this.GetNodeAt : System.Drawing.Point -> System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode
Public Function GetNodeAt (pt As Point) As TreeNode

Parameters

pt
Point

The Point to evaluate and retrieve the node from.

Returns

The TreeNode at the specified point, in tree view (client) coordinates, or null if there is no node at that location.

Remarks

You can pass the MouseEventArgs.X and MouseEventArgs.Y coordinates of the MouseDown event as the X and Y values of a new Point.

GetNodeAt(Int32, Int32)

public:
 System::Windows::Forms::TreeNode ^ GetNodeAt(int x, int y);
public System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode GetNodeAt (int x, int y);
member this.GetNodeAt : int * int -> System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode
Public Function GetNodeAt (x As Integer, y As Integer) As TreeNode

Parameters

x
Int32

The X position to evaluate and retrieve the node from.

y
Int32

The Y position to evaluate and retrieve the node from.

Returns

The TreeNode at the specified location, in tree view (client) coordinates, or null if there is no node at that location.

Examples

The following code example lets the user edit nonroot tree nodes by using a ContextMenu. When the user right clicks the mouse, the TreeNode at that position is determined and stored in a variable named mySelectedNode. If a nonroot tree node was selected, it is put into an editable state, which allows the user to edit the node label. After the user stops editing the tree node label, the new label text is evaluated and saved. For this example, several characters are considered not valid in the label text. If one of the invalid characters is in the label string, or the string is empty, the user is notified of the error and the label is returned to its previous text.
