Treeview Parent

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Hello! Short version: How to get the visual parent of a bound treeviewItem? (not actually a treeviewitem but my own object)   Long version: I know there are alot of posts about this problem, but I can't seem to get any of the solutions to work. I have this simple task(so I thought) to find the parent of an item in my treeview. The item is not a TreeViewItem it is my own type. The class I use to build the treeview has children of its own class, so its only one type of objects in the treeview. I want to be able to move any items into another so it becomes the child of the new item. This works well by adding it to the children property of my class. I do that by dragging a node onto another node. But how do I remove it from the original object? When I start dragging, the node becomes selected, and here is a perfect place to put the magic code. MagicTreeViewHelper.getTheFreakinParentNode(myDraggedObject). Please help me make this method!! ;) I cant go through the data and remove the child from all the other items because it is allowed for any item to be a child of multiple nodes. So I need to access the visual parent node which contains the bound object from which I'm dragging the item from. One solution that seems to be the answer everywhere I look is some variant of the code below: Already on the first line it fails, because I dont have TreeViewItems in my tree... Any s

Treeview: Select all children if Parent is selected etc...



I'm using a Treeview with  ShowCheckBoxes="All" , so basically I have a tree with all CheckBox Nodes. I'm using the TreeView inside an update panel, and populate the Tree code behind dynamically.

My requrements are the following:

1) Select all the children if parent is selected,

2) When parent is selected, and if we de-select a child, set parent unselected

3) Track if new nodes were selected and previously selected nodes were de-selected (becasue I need to update the database according to the selections in the Tree)

For above 1, I do the following:

protected void TreeView1_TreeNodeCheckChanged(object sender, TreeNodeEventArgs e)
        foreach (TreeNode node in TreeView1.Nodes)
            TreeNodeCollection col = node.ChildNodes;
            //select all children when the parent is checked
            if (col != null && node.Checked)

Composite Control which contains arbitrary content defined in .aspx of parent and thier ViewState


I want to write own control which can contain other. And I want to define content of the control in the .aspx file where the control is defined. I have written such control.

TreeView Help


Why the label.text is not showing the correct result after clicking three time on treeview.

I have TreeView1 and TreeView2 on my webpage and a label1
TreeView1 a list of items and TreeView2 contains another list of items

Now the first time I click on TreeView1 on the first item which is "Hello" label1.text show me Hello
the second time when I click on TreeView2 on the first item which is "World" label1.text show me World
the third time I clicked on TreeView1 on the first item again which is "Hello" label1.text show me World.  label1.text suppose to show me Hello, right?

What could be the problem what am I missing?

protected void TreeView1_SelectedNodeChanged1(object sender, EventArgs e)
Label1.Text = TreeView1.SelectedValue;
protected void TreeView2_SelectedNodeChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
Label1.Text = TreeView2.SelectedValue;

(Imperfect) Solution to TreeView Postback / Client-Side Node Selection Issue


I've seen this question posted on all corners of the web... "How do I disable "AutoPostBack" on the ASP.NET 2.0 TreeView control?!"  Unfortunately, most of the answers either don't work, miss the point (don't work right), or boil down to "You can't do it."  I happen to know that this behavior worked perfectly in the IEWebControls TreeView that Microsoft released as an add-on prior to ASP.NET 2.0, however.  So I set out to find a solution for the ASP.NET 2.0 TreeView issue.

In a nutshell, the behavior that I and others are looking for is to have a TreeView rendered in a page that allows the user to expand, contract, and select nodes within the TreeView without causing a PostBack to the server.  This implies two things: (1) the most recently-selected node should be recorded as the currently-selected node [i.e., at PostBack time, the most-recently selected node is actually represented as the SelectedNode]; and (2) the selected node should exhibit the SelectedNodeStyle as specified in the TreeView declaration.

It appears that the TreeView engineers saw only two possible outcomes from selecting a leaf node in a tree: (1) immediately posting back to the server, or (2) immediately navigating to another web page.  They apparently did not consider option (3) just allowing selection in-place on the client, while waiting for a click on so

Two modalpopups as a parent-child


When I  open two modalpopups, one over another, there is unexpected order.

After click on "Open Parent Panel", and click on "Open Child Panel",

Child Panel (newone) is under the Parent.

What should I do to get it in "normal order"?

The code is:

Refresh Parent on Pop Up Closed


This has probably been answered before but I was looking at some various posts but the needs I am trying to meet just don't see to work.

So here is the scenario:

User clicks the button and a javascript I have registered opens a pop up window and passes a query string

User then is presented with a gridview with a selection to make (the selection event is triggered again through javascript and mouseover event)

The data is updated in the table for the data being displayed in the parent which is all fine

When the page is done with this it closes and refreshes the parent


Now the problem:

All of this works fine up until the point that I close the window and after playing around with different snippets I have come across I just can't get the thing to refresh the parent properly because when I do the refresh I need to pass the current querystring as follows:

        Dim cScript As String
        cScript = "<script language='javascript'> opener.location.href = 'Workstations.aspx?ClientID=' & MyGUID & '&AddNew=' & 'False' & '&WksID=' & WksID'; </script>"
        Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "parentwindow", cScript)

Microsoft JScript runtime error: 'Parent' is null or not an object


Hi friends,

        I got This Error : Microsoft JScript runtime error: 'Parent' is null or not an object

 In runtime,after  click on the check box, It Show "Microsoft JScript runtime error: 'Parent' is null or not an object"

<script language ="javascript" type ="text/javascript" >

           var IsChecked = spanChk.checked;
           var items=0;
           var Chk = spanChk;
              Parent = document.getElementById('gvUsers');          
              var items = Parent.getElementsByTagName('input');                         
              for(var i=0;i<items.length;i++)
                  if(items[i].id != Chk && items[i].type=="checkbox")
                      if(items[i].checked!= IsChecked)

please verify it.
