TreeView::ItemHeight Property

Gets or sets the height of each tree node in the tree view control.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
property int ItemHeight {
	int get ();
	void set (int value);

Property Value

Type: System::Int32
The height, in pixels, of each tree node in the tree view.

The assigned value is less than one.


The assigned value is greater than the MaxValue value.

If the item height is set to a value larger than the height of the tree view control, calling the TreeNode::EnsureVisible method will have unexpected results.

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 that contains font sizes.

   void Button1_Click( Object^ /*sender*/, EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
      myTreeView->ItemHeight = 5;
      myTreeView->SelectedNode->NodeFont = gcnew System::Drawing::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 = gcnew System::Drawing::Font( "Arial",(float)myNodeFontSize );
      for ( int i = 0; i < myTreeView->Nodes[ 0 ]->Nodes->Count; i++ )

         // Set the font of child nodes.
         myTreeView->Nodes[ 0 ]->Nodes[ i ]->NodeFont = gcnew System::Drawing::Font( "Arial",(float)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;
