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

Removes the specified TreeNodeBinding object from the TreeNodeBindingCollection object.

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

public void Remove(
	TreeNodeBinding binding


Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.TreeNodeBinding

The TreeNodeBinding to remove.

Use the Remove method to remove the specified TreeNodeBinding object from the collection. All items that follow that node are then moved up to fill the vacant position. The indexes of the moved items are also updated.

As an alternative, you can remove a node at a specific index using the RemoveAt method. You can also remove every node in the collection using the Clear method.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Remove method to remove a TreeNodeBinding object programmatically from a TreeNodeBindingCollection object. 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.

<script runat="server">

  void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)

    // Use the Remove method to remove the TreeNodeBinding object
    // for the third-level nodes (index 2).
    TreeNodeBinding oldBinding = BookTreeView.DataBindings[2];

    // Create a new TreeNodeBinding object and set its properties.
    TreeNodeBinding newBinding = new TreeNodeBinding();
    newBinding.DataMember = "Section";
    newBinding.TextField = "Subject";

    // Use the Add method to add the TreeNodeBinding object to the 
    // DataBindings collection.
