ExpandImageUrl Property

TreeView.ExpandImageUrl Property

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

Gets or sets the URL to a custom image for the expandable node indicator.

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

public string ExpandImageUrl { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_ExpandImageUrl ()

/** @property */
public void set_ExpandImageUrl (String value)

public function get ExpandImageUrl () : String

public function set ExpandImageUrl (value : String)

Property Value

The URL to a custom image to display for expandable nodes. The default is an empty string (""), which displays the default plus sign (+) image.

Use the ExpandImageUrl property to specify a custom image for the expandable node indicator. This image is displayed next to an expandable node and is usually a plus sign (+).

When the ShowExpandCollapse property is set to true, the TreeView control displays a plus sign (+) or minus sign (-) or a placeholder image next to a node to indicate whether the node is expandable, collapsible, or non-expandable, respectively. You can specify custom images by first setting the ImageSet property to TreeViewImageSet.Custom, and then setting the NoExpandImageUrl, ExpandImageUrl, and CollapseImageUrl properties to the URLs for the custom images. If no images are specified, the default images are used. To hide the expansion node indicators, set the ShowExpandCollapse property to false.

NoteNote

To ensure that nodes align correctly in the TreeView control when using custom images, make sure that all the images that are specified by the NoExpandImageUrl, ExpandImageUrl, and CollapseImageUrl properties have the same dimensions.

When using a custom image for the expandable node indicator, you should also consider setting the ExpandImageToolTip property to specify a ToolTip for the image.

The value of this property is stored in view state.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ExpandImageUrl property to specify a custom image for the expandable node indicator. For the code example to display and the image to appear in the control, you must provide your own image and the ImageSet property must be set to TreeNodeImageSet.Custom.
