TreeView.TreeNodeExpanded Event

Occurs when a node is expanded in the TreeView control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public event TreeNodeEventHandler TreeNodeExpanded
<asp:TreeView OnTreeNodeExpanded="TreeNodeEventHandler" />

The TreeNodeExpanded event is raised when a node is expanded in the TreeView control. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine whenever this event occurs.

NoteNote

If the SelectAction property for a node is set to TreeNodeSelectAction.Expand or TreeNodeSelectAction.SelectExpand, the TreeNodeExpanded event is also raised when that node is clicked in the TreeView control.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the TreeNodeExpanded event to update the content of a Label control when the user expands a node in the TreeView control.
