Gets the depth of the node.

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

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public int Depth { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The depth of the node.

Use the Depth property to determine the depth of the node. The depth represents the number of levels of hierarchy between a node and the root node. For example, a root node has a depth of zero. A child of the root node has a depth of one, and so on.

The following code example demonstrates how use the Depth property to determine the depth of a node. It initializes all nodes with a depth of one to a selected state. For this example to work correctly, you must copy the sample XML data below to a file named Newsgroup.xml.
