WPF TreeView Binding

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

Hello All,

I am having a heck of a time trying to get a TreeView control bounded to a List which is a member of Class which is a member of the MainWindow. Here is a contrived example similar to what I am trying today. Can anyone help me bind so that the Server Names show as Items in the TreeView. This would be a huge help.


Custom Classes:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace SystemsManagement
    public class ServerManager
        public List<Server> Servers { get; private set; }

        public ServerManager()
            Servers = new List<Server>();

            Servers.Add(new Server("Server1"));
            Servers.Add(new Server("Server2"));


    public class Server

Binding the sharepoint treeview to the quick launch data source

Is there any way i can bind the sharepoint treeview navigation to the same datasource as the quick launch bar? I'm trying to create a consistent navigation structure within a 4-site deep structure so the quick launch bar is rather clunky to use, but the treeview picks up on document libraries i don't want it to (i only want it to show subsites and pages).

Memory leak on binding to a WPF TreeView

We're having an issue with a TreeView hanging onto a viewmodel set that has been bound to it. We have a static treeview on the main window, and reset its ItemsSource to Nothing or a new viewmodel when new things need to be displayed. The problem seems to be that it's hanging onto the first item that it was bound to, even after the ItemsSource is set to nothing. The connection seems to be through some strange unknown binding that's in the EffectiveValues collection of the TreeView.   I was able to repro this in a test project, so I'll post the simplified code:   TreeView templates:   <Window.Resources> <HierarchicalDataTemplate DataType="{x:Type local:ParentViewModel}" ItemsSource="{Binding ChildVMs}"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding Name}"/> </HierarchicalDataTemplate> <DataTemplate DataType="{x:Type local:ChildViewModel}"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding Name}"/> </DataTemplate> </Window.Resources>   ViewModel definitions: (Shared Function to generate the itemssource for the treeview)   Public Class ParentViewModel Public Shared counter As Integer = 0 Public Shared Function GenerateViewModel() As List(Of ParentViewModel) Dim pvm As New ParentViewModel With {.Name = "Parent" & counter} ' Unique name pvm.ChildV

Binding to the TreeView control

My TreeView controls is rendering CheckBoxes on Leaf nodes. I want to bind to those nodes the ID of the underlying data item. I am not sure I can do this declaratively or if I need to hook up to the TreeNodeDataBound event. If the latter, how would I go about achieving this?   _hector

Binding a treeview to a LinqToSQL class...


Hi all,

I have a LinQtoSQL class which encapsulates a table with the following relationship:

Id (int)
Parent ID(int)
Name (string)

Here, the parent ID is the id of another row int he same table. So, the table could look like:

1, null, grandpa
2,1, mom

What I want to do is the create a treeview that binds to the table so that it looks like this:


Also, I should be able to add or delete nodes/rows...

Any ideas on how to do this? Is this even possible without writing the code to do all the population and the edit etc?





Binding a TreeView to a collection of objects



I want to achieve this:


through data binding. That is, I've got this collection of objects of the same class (currently stored in a ArrayList), and I want to display them in a treeview, so that when you expand them you can see the values of their attributes.

Is it possible to do it via DataBinding?





Binding a Treeview to an exception...

I'm not too familiar with Hierarchal DataTemplates yet, but here's what I want to do. 

I have a message box that has a small expander on the bottom with a treeview inside.  I want to hook the treeview up so that during runtime when an error occurs it can be caught, loaded into this treeview and displayed (including all the inner exceptions). 

How would I go about doing this? 

I'm fairly familiar with wpf and I can get everything into the message box correctly it's just the final display that I can't do yet. Also, I'm using VS 2010 Ultimate Beta 2.  Thanks in advance!!

WPF Treeview - Binding to a collection with different depths, and styling differently


Apologies for the long post -- Read a few threads about this, but still find it hard to implement. Basically, I have a collection of objects, defined as:

public class LibData
  public string Name { get; set; }
  ObservableCollection<LibObject> _list;
  public ObservableCollection<LibObject> List { get { return _list; } }

  public LibData(string name, LibDataType type)
    this.Name = name;
    _list = new ObservableCollection<LibObject>();

Nonstandard Treeview Binding


I am currently binding a Treeview to an Entity Framework objectset, which is working just fine. However I would like to organize the nodes in the treeview differently.

For example, if I bind so the root nodes represent the Students collection and the leaf nodes are that student's Subjects collection, that is just fine, but can I change the arrangement so that there are two root nodes, say Male and Female students, according to a property of the Student, and underneath those, the leaf nodes are say Bob, Dave, Steve under the Male root. And Jane, Sheila and Gertrude under the Female root?

In other words, instead of binding to Students and a collection belonging to Students, can I set up the treeview in such a way that the root nodes are manually specified, and the leaf nodes are under the correct root based on a property of the Students?

Thanks for any advice.

Binding Nested Listviews in MVC ViewPage


I am a longtime .NET developer but for big applications and services.  This is my first asp.net project and I have chosen MVC.   I have a need for nesting a ListView within a ListView.  In this simple catalog app, I have EF 4 Entities that are Categories, SubCategories, ItemTypes, and Items.

My goal is to display a 5 column layout of SubCategories with their ItemTypes below them in a ViewPage.  I did just fine with it done out in C# as server directives such as:

    var subcats = Model.SubCategory.ToArray();
    var nrSubCats = subcats.Count();
    var rows = (nrSubCats/5) + (((nrSubCats % 5) > 0) ? 1 : 0);
    for (var row = 0; row < rows; row++)
    { %>
        <div style="width: 100%; float: left; clear: right;">
        var start = row * 5;
        for (var i = start; (i < start + 5) && (i < nrSubCats); i++)
        var subcat = subcats[i];
            <div style="float: left; clear: right; width: 20%; margin-left: 5;">
                <h2> <%:subcat.Name%></h2>
                    foreach (var its in subcat.ItemType)
