TreeView.GetNodeCount(Boolean) Method

Definition

Retrieves the number of tree nodes, optionally including those in all subtrees, assigned to the tree view control.

public:
 int GetNodeCount(bool includeSubTrees);
public int GetNodeCount (bool includeSubTrees);
member this.GetNodeCount : bool -> int
Public Function GetNodeCount (includeSubTrees As Boolean) As Integer

Parameters

includeSubTrees
Boolean

true to count the TreeNode items that the subtrees contain; otherwise, false.

Returns

Int32

The number of tree nodes, optionally including those in all subtrees, assigned to the tree view control.

Examples

The following code example sets the PathSeparator property of a TreeView and displays the number of child tree nodes that are contained in the TreeNodeCollection of the SelectedNode. The percentage of child tree node to total tree nodes in the tree view control is also displayed. This example requires that you have a Form with a Button, and a TreeView control with a TreeNodeCollection that has several TreeNode objects (preferably with three or more levels).

void myButton_Click( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
{

   // Set the tree view's PathSeparator property.
   myTreeView->PathSeparator = ".";

   // Get the count of the child tree nodes contained in the SelectedNode.
   int myNodeCount = myTreeView->SelectedNode->GetNodeCount( true );
   Decimal myChildPercentage = ((Decimal)myNodeCount / (Decimal)myTreeView->GetNodeCount( true )) * 100;

   // Display the tree node path and the number of child nodes it and the tree view have.
   MessageBox::Show( String::Concat( "The '", myTreeView->SelectedNode->FullPath, "' node has ", myNodeCount, " child nodes.\nThat is ", String::Format( "{0:###.##}", myChildPercentage ), "% of the total tree nodes in the tree view control." ) );
}
private void myButton_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
   // Set the tree view's PathSeparator property.
   myTreeView.PathSeparator = ".";

   // Get the count of the child tree nodes contained in the SelectedNode.
   int myNodeCount = myTreeView.SelectedNode.GetNodeCount(true);
   decimal myChildPercentage = ((decimal)myNodeCount/
     (decimal)myTreeView.GetNodeCount(true)) * 100;

   // Display the tree node path and the number of child nodes it and the tree view have.
   MessageBox.Show("The '" + myTreeView.SelectedNode.FullPath + "' node has "
     + myNodeCount.ToString() + " child nodes.\nThat is "
     + string.Format("{0:###.##}", myChildPercentage)
     + "% of the total tree nodes in the tree view control.");
}
Private Sub myButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, _
  ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles myButton.Click
   ' Set the tree view's PathSeparator property.
   myTreeView.PathSeparator = "."

   ' Get the count of the child tree nodes contained in the SelectedNode.
   Dim myNodeCount As Integer = myTreeView.SelectedNode.GetNodeCount(True)
   Dim myChildPercentage As Decimal = CDec(myNodeCount) / _
      CDec(myTreeView.GetNodeCount(True)) * 100

   ' Display the tree node path and the number of child nodes it and the tree view have.
   MessageBox.Show(("The '" + myTreeView.SelectedNode.FullPath + "' node has " _
      + myNodeCount.ToString() + " child nodes." + Microsoft.VisualBasic.ControlChars.Lf _
      + "That is " + String.Format("{0:###.##}", myChildPercentage) _
      + "% of the total tree nodes in the tree view control."))
End Sub

Remarks

If includeSubTrees is true, the result is the number of all the tree nodes in the entire tree structure.
