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

Raises the SelectedNodeChanged event of the TreeView control.

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

protected virtual void OnSelectedNodeChanged(
	EventArgs e


Type: System.EventArgs

An System.EventArgs that contains event data.

The SelectedNodeChanged event is raised when a node is selected in the TreeView control. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as updating the displayed content, whenever this event occurs.

You can optionally set the SelectAction property of a node to specify which event is raised when that node is selected.


The HoverNodeStyle is not rendered for a node with its SelectAction property set to TreeNodeSelectAction.None.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see NIB: Consuming Events.

The OnSelectedNodeChanged method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors:

When overriding the OnSelectedNodeChanged method in a derived class, be sure to call the OnSelectedNodeChanged method for the base class so that registered delegates receive the event.
