TreeView.HoverNodeStyle Property

Gets a reference to the TreeNodeStyle object that allows you to set the appearance of a node when the mouse pointer is positioned over it.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
[PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty)]
public Style HoverNodeStyle { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.Style
A reference to the TreeNodeStyle that represents the style of a node when the mouse pointer is positioned over it.

Use the HoverNodeStyle property to control the appearance of a node when the mouse pointer is positioned over it. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the TreeNodeStyle object that it returns. The properties can be set declaratively in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the TreeNodeStyle object (for example, HoverNodeStyle-ForeColor). The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, HoverNodeStyle.ForeColor). This feature is supported only on script-capable clients.

NoteNote:

To use the HoverNodeStyle property, you must include a <head> element with a runat="server" attribute.

Common settings usually include a custom background color, foreground color, font properties, and node spacing. Style properties are applied in the following order:

  1. NodeStyle.

  2. RootNodeStyle, ParentNodeStyle, or LeafNodeStyle, depending on the node type. If the LevelStyles collection is defined, it is applied at this time, overriding the other node style properties.

  3. SelectedNodeStyle.

  4. HoverNodeStyle.

NoteNote:

The style settings for the HoverNodeStyle property override any corresponding node style settings that are in the NodeStyle, RootNodeStyle, ParentNodeStyle, LeafNodeStyle, or SelectedNodeStyle property.

The HoverNodeStyle property is not rendered for a node with its SelectAction property set to TreeNodeSelectAction.None.

Unlike the ParentNodeStyle and the LeafNodeStyle properties, which are TreeNodeStyle objects, the HoverNodeStyle property is a Style object.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the HoverNodeStyle property to control the appearance of a node when the mouse pointer is positioned over it. For this example to work, you must include a <head> element with a runat="server" attribute.
