Displaying + on treeview node even when no child nodes are present

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

I have a treeview control that is working great, except that I would like the behavior of some nodes to display the + even though no child nodes exist yet. Meaning, I want my treeview control to look like this:

- RootNode
    + Node1
    + Node2
    + Node3

However, Nodes 1, 2, and 3 do not have any child nodes. From what I can see the + or - does not display if there are no child nodes, but I would like to see the + appear even though there are no child nodes. I want to do this because I want to create the child nodes upon expanding the parent node (Node1 for example).

Is this possible?

Display error if a treeview root node contains a child node

WPF TreeView child nodes - collection is not a member of the first level nodes object



I was wondering if i could use a TreeView to display data from 2 separate collections where both collections are members of the same object. For example i have a view model that has 2 observable collections:



Each model has a property Brand which specifies the brand for each model. What i want to do is bind the first level to the Brands collection and the second level to the Models collection and specify a filter.

Thanks in advance.

WPF Selected xml node from treeview, I want to populate a datagrid with that node and all child node

I have populated a tree view from a xml.  I know want to take the node and all children that has been selected by double clicking on the tree node and populate a data grid.

Child nodes not allowed.


Hi everyone.

I'm positive that, by now, a lot of people have run into this problem but even with all the forum posts with great answers, I still can't seem to get to the bottom of it. Here are some specs:

  • Windows Server 2008
  • Visual Studio 2008 x86

So here's the issue:

I have VS2008 installed on the server listed above. This is our development server and everything is created and tested here. I have created an asp.net application, tested it on the dev. environment and everything works great. When I try to migrate this application up to our Quality Assurance environment (which is Windows Server 2003), I get the error in the subject title.

I've read many things that can be the cause of this and I'm positive that I know 2 ways of fixing it. One is from this post: Simple web site problem on Vista, related to <providerOption>, and the other is making sure 3.5 framework is at least installed on the server in question. There are 2 reasons why I'm unable to use these 2 methods:

  • The patches from DVD that I'm supposed to install won't let me install them. Upon double clicking I recieve a message saying the "Update is not applicable to your computer"
  • I don't have permission to install 3.5 frame

(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

Treeview - how to change node icon depending on node contents

I have a treeview in an MVVM application: <TreeView ItemsSource="{Binding RootNodes}"> <TreeView.ItemContainerStyle> <Style TargetType="{x:Type TreeViewItem}"> <Setter Property="IsExpanded" Value="{Binding IsExpanded, Mode=TwoWay}" /> <Setter Property="IsSelected" Value="{Binding IsSelected, Mode=TwoWay}" /> <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Normal" /> <Style.Triggers> <Trigger Property="IsSelected" Value="True"> <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Bold" /> </Trigger> </Style.Triggers> </Style> </TreeView.ItemContainerStyle> <TreeView.ItemTemplate> <HierarchicalDataTemplate ItemsSource="{Binding Children}"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding NodeName}" /> </HierarchicalDataTemplate> </TreeView.ItemTemplate> </TreeView> The treeview is bound to an ObservableCollection called RootNodes. Elements in the RootNodes collection expose a member "NodeName" which is the text for the nodes in the treeview at runtime. They also expose a member called "NodeType", effectively an enumeration that indicates what type of icon should be displa
