TreeNode.Selected Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the node is selected.

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

public bool Selected { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_Selected ()

/** @property */
public void set_Selected (boolean value)

public function get Selected () : boolean

public function set Selected (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the node is selected; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Use the Selected property to specify or determine whether the node is selected.

NoteNote

Although the property can be used to determine whether the node is selected, it is more common to use the SelectedNode property.

Only one node can be selected at a time in the TreeView control when using this property.

NoteNote

As an alternative, you can also select the node by using the Select method.

The value of this property is stored in view state.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Selected property to select a node in the TreeView control.


<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

<script runat="server">

  void Button_Command(Object sender, CommandEventArgs e)
  {

    // Iterate through the child nodes of the root node and find
    // the nodes for Chapter One and Chapter Two.
    foreach(TreeNode node in LinksTreeView.Nodes[0].ChildNodes)
    {

      // Select the appropriate node based on which button was clicked.
      switch(node.Text)
      {

        case "Chapter One":
          // If the button clicked was "Chapter One", select the node 
          // using the Selected property.
          if (e.CommandName == "Chapter One")
          {
            // Select the node using the Selected property.
            node.Selected = true;
          }
          break;

        case "Chapter Two":
          // If the button clicked was "Chapter Two", select the node 
          // using the Select method.
          if (e.CommandName == "Chapter Two")
          {
            // Select the node using the Select method.
            node.Select();
          }
          break;

        default:
          // Do nothing.
          break;

      }

    }

  }
