TreeNodeCollection Class

Represents a collection of TreeNode objects.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public class TreeNodeCollection : IList, ICollection, IEnumerable
public class TreeNodeCollection implements IList, ICollection, 
	IEnumerable
public class TreeNodeCollection implements IList, ICollection, 
	IEnumerable
Not applicable.

The Add, Remove, and RemoveAt methods enable you to add and remove individual tree nodes from the collection.

NoteNote:

Enumerating the collection and removing nodes is not supported.

You can also use the AddRange or Clear methods to add or remove all the tree nodes from the collection.

Classes cannot inherit from the TreeNodeCollection class.

The following code example displays customer information in a TreeView control. The root tree nodes display customer names, and the child tree nodes display the order numbers assigned to each customer. In this example, 1,000 customers are displayed with 15 orders each. The repainting of the TreeView is suppressed by using the BeginUpdate and EndUpdate methods, and a wait Cursor is displayed while the TreeView creates and paints the TreeNode objects. This example requires that you have a Customer object that can hold a collection of Order objects. It also requires that you have created an instance of a TreeView control on a Form.

// Create a new ArrayList to hold the Customer objects.
private ArrayList customerArray = new ArrayList(); 

private void FillMyTreeView()
{
   // Add customers to the ArrayList of Customer objects.
   for(int x=0; x<1000; x++)
   {
      customerArray.Add(new Customer("Customer" + x.ToString()));
   }

   // Add orders to each Customer object in the ArrayList.
   foreach(Customer customer1 in customerArray)
   {
      for(int y=0; y<15; y++)
      {
         customer1.CustomerOrders.Add(new Order("Order" + y.ToString()));    
      }
   }

   // Display a wait cursor while the TreeNodes are being created.
   Cursor.Current = new Cursor("MyWait.cur");
        
   // Suppress repainting the TreeView until all the objects have been created.
   treeView1.BeginUpdate();

   // Clear the TreeView each time the method is called.
   treeView1.Nodes.Clear();

   // Add a root TreeNode for each Customer object in the ArrayList.
   foreach(Customer customer2 in customerArray)
   {
      treeView1.Nodes.Add(new TreeNode(customer2.CustomerName));
          
      // Add a child treenode for each Order object in the current Customer object.
      foreach(Order order1 in customer2.CustomerOrders)
      {
         treeView1.Nodes[customerArray.IndexOf(customer2)].Nodes.Add(
           new TreeNode(customer2.CustomerName + "." + order1.OrderID));
      }
   }

   // Reset the cursor to the default for all controls.
   Cursor.Current = Cursors.Default;

   // Begin repainting the TreeView.
   treeView1.EndUpdate();
}

// Create a new ArrayList to hold the Customer objects.
private ArrayList customerArray = new ArrayList();

private void FillMyTreeView()
{
    // Add customers to the ArrayList of Customer objects.
    for (int x = 0; x < 1000; x++) {
        customerArray.Add(new Customer("Customer"
            + ((Int32)x).ToString()));
    }
    // Add orders to each Customer object in the ArrayList.
    for (int iCtr = 0; iCtr < customerArray.get_Count(); iCtr++) {
        Customer customer1 = (Customer)customerArray.get_Item(iCtr);
        for (int y = 0; y < 15; y++) {
            customer1.get_CustomerOrders().Add(new Order("Order"
                + ((Int32)y).ToString()));
        }
    }
    // Display a wait cursor while the TreeNodes are being created.
    get_Cursor().set_Current(new Cursor("MyWait.cur"));
    // Suppress repainting the TreeView until all the objects have
    // been created.
    treeView1.BeginUpdate();
    // Clear the TreeView each time the method is called.
    treeView1.get_Nodes().Clear();
    // Add a root TreeNode for each Customer object in the ArrayList.
    for (int iCtr1 = 0; iCtr1 < customerArray.get_Count(); iCtr1++) {
        Customer customer2 = (Customer)customerArray.get_Item(iCtr1);
        treeView1.get_Nodes().Add(new TreeNode(customer2.get_CustomerName()));
        // Add a child treenode for each Order object in the current
        // Customer object.
        for (int iCtr2 = 0; iCtr2 < customer2.get_CustomerOrders().
            get_Count(); iCtr2++) {
            Order order1 = (Order)customer2.get_CustomerOrders().
                get_Item(iCtr2);
            treeView1.get_Nodes().
                get_Item(customerArray.IndexOf(customer2)).get_Nodes().
                Add(new TreeNode(customer2.get_CustomerName() + "."
                + order1.get_OrderID()));
        }
    }
    // Reset the cursor to the default for all controls.
    get_Cursor().set_Current(Cursors.get_Default());
    // Begin repainting the TreeView.
    treeView1.EndUpdate();
} //FillMyTreeView
