The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets or sets the TreeNodeBinding object at the specified index in the TreeNodeBindingCollection object.

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

public TreeNodeBinding this[
	int i
] { get; set; }


Type: System.Int32

The zero-based index of the TreeNodeBinding to retrieve.

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.TreeNodeBinding

The TreeNodeBinding at the specified index in the TreeNodeBindingCollection.

Use the Item indexer to access a TreeNodeBinding object from the TreeNodeBindingCollection object located at i using array notation. The Item indexer allows you to modify or replace a TreeNodeBinding object in the collection directly.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Item indexer to access the items that are in a TreeNodeBindingCollection object. The TreeNodeBinding object for the third-level nodes is updated programmatically with new values. For this example to work correctly, you must copy the XML data that is located at the end of this section to a file called Book.xml.

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

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<script runat="server">

  void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)

    // Use the indexer to access the TreeNodeBinding object for
    // the third-level nodes (index 2) and change the value of 
    // its TextField property to "Subject".
    BookTreeView.DataBindings[2].TextField = "Subject";
