TreeNodeCollection.Count Property

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

Gets the number of items in the TreeNodeCollection object.

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

public int Count { get; }
/** @property */
public final int get_Count ()

public final function get Count () : int

Property Value

The number of items in the TreeNodeCollection.

Use the Count property to determine the number of items in a TreeNodeCollection. This property is commonly used when iterating through a collection to determine the upper bound of the collection. The Count property is also commonly used to determine whether a collection is empty.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Count property to determine the number of items in the TreeNodeCollection. It then performs a preorder traversal of the TreeView control to display the text of each node.


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

<script runat="server">

  void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
  {

    // If the TreeView control contains any root nodes, perform a
    // preorder traversal of the tree and display the text of each node.
    if(LinksTreeView.Nodes.Count > 0)
    {

      // Iterate through the root nodes in the Nodes property.
      for(int i=0; i<LinksTreeView.Nodes.Count; i++)
      {

        // Display the nodes.
        DisplayChildNodeText(LinksTreeView.Nodes[i]);

      }
      
    }
    else
    {
    
      Message.Text = "The TreeView control does not have any nodes.";
    
    }

  }

  void DisplayChildNodeText(TreeNode node)
  {
  
    // Display the node's text value.
    Message.Text += node.Text + "<br>";

    // Iterate through the child nodes of the parent node passed into
    // this method and display their values.
    for(int i=0; i<node.ChildNodes.Count; i++)
    {

      // Recursively call the DisplayChildNodeText method to
      // traverse the tree and display all the child nodes.
      DisplayChildNodeText(node.ChildNodes[i]);

    }

  }

</script>
