TreeNode.BackColor Property

Gets or sets the background color of the tree node.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

Public Property BackColor As Color

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color
The background Color of the tree node. The default is Color.Empty.

If the BackColor property is set to Color.Empty, the Color used is the BackColor property value of the TreeView control that the tree node is assigned to.

The following code example highlights any TreeNode objects a TreeView control that has its Checked property set to true by setting its BackColor property to Yellow. This code requires that you have a TreeView control on a Form with a collection of TreeNode objects.

Public Sub HighlightCheckedNodes()
   Dim countIndex As Integer = 0
   Dim selectedNode As String = "Selected customer nodes are : " 
   Dim myNode As TreeNode
   For Each myNode In  myTreeView.Nodes(0).Nodes
      ' Check whether the tree node is checked. 
      If myNode.Checked Then 
         ' Set the node's backColor.
         myNode.BackColor = Color.Yellow
         selectedNode += myNode.Text + " "
         countIndex += 1
         myNode.BackColor = Color.White
      End If 
   Next myNode

   If countIndex > 0 Then
      MessageBox.Show("No nodes are selected")
   End If 
End Sub
