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.
