Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example demonstrates how to change the collapse state of a TreeView so that all the checked nodes are visible. First, all the nodes are collapsed, and a handler is added to the TreeView.BeforeExpand event. Next, all the nodes are expanded. The TreeView.BeforeExpand event handler determines whether a given node has child nodes that are checked. If a node does not have checked children, the expansion is canceled for that node. In order to allow normal node expansion when the plus sign next to a node is clicked, the TreeView.BeforeExpand event handler is then removed.

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] This behavior can also be implemented by handling the TreeView.BeforeCollapse event, as illustrated in the example for that topic.

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] For the complete example, see the TreeView.CheckBoxes reference topic.
