Property Value

The Font used to display the text on the tree node's label.

If a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the Font used is the Font property value of the TreeView control that this node is attached to.

NoteNote:

If the node font is larger than the Font property value set in the TreeView control, the tree node label text is clipped.

The following code example changes the size NodeFont to the specified size and adjusts the ItemHeight of the tree node's parent TreeView control. This example requires that you have a Form with a TreeView control with a collection of TreeNode objects, and a ComboBox containing font sizes.

private void Button1_Click(object sender,EventArgs e)
{
   myTreeView.ItemHeight = 5;
   myTreeView.SelectedNode.NodeFont = new Font("Arial",5);

   // Get the font size from combobox.
   string selectedString = myComboBox.SelectedItem.ToString();
   int myNodeFontSize = Int32.Parse(selectedString);

   // Set the font of root node.
   myTreeView.SelectedNode.NodeFont = new Font("Arial",myNodeFontSize);
   for(int i = 0; i < myTreeView.Nodes[0].Nodes.Count; i++)
   {
      // Set the font of child nodes.
      myTreeView.Nodes[0].Nodes[i].NodeFont =
        new Font("Arial",myNodeFontSize);
   }

   // Get the bounds of the tree node.
   Rectangle myRectangle = myTreeView.SelectedNode.Bounds;
   int myNodeHeight = myRectangle.Height;
   if(myNodeHeight < myNodeFontSize)
   {
      myNodeHeight = myNodeFontSize;
   }
   myTreeView.ItemHeight = myNodeHeight + 4;
}

private void Button1_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    myTreeView.set_ItemHeight(5);
    myTreeView.get_SelectedNode().set_NodeFont(new Font("Arial", 5));
    // Get the font size from combobox.
    String selectedString = myComboBox.get_SelectedItem().ToString();
    int myNodeFontSize = Int32.Parse(selectedString);
    // Set the font of root node.
    myTreeView.get_SelectedNode().set_NodeFont(new Font("Arial",
        myNodeFontSize));
    for (int i = 0; i < myTreeView.get_Nodes().get_Item(0).
        get_Nodes().get_Count(); i++) {
        // Set the font of child nodes.
        myTreeView.get_Nodes().get_Item(0).get_Nodes().get_Item(i).
            set_NodeFont(new Font("Arial", myNodeFontSize));
    }
    // Get the bounds of the tree node.
    Rectangle myRectangle = myTreeView.get_SelectedNode().get_Bounds();
    int myNodeHeight = myRectangle.get_Height();
    if (myNodeHeight < myNodeFontSize) {
        myNodeHeight = myNodeFontSize;
    }
    myTreeView.set_ItemHeight(myNodeHeight + 4);
} //Button1_Click
