TreeNode.FirstNode Property

Gets the first child tree node in the tree node collection.

[Visual Basic]
Public ReadOnly Property FirstNode As TreeNode
public TreeNode FirstNode {get;}
public: __property TreeNode* get_FirstNode();
public function get FirstNode() : TreeNode;

Property Value

The first child TreeNode in the Nodes collection.


The FirstNode is the first child TreeNode in the TreeNodeCollection stored in the Nodes property of the current tree node. If the TreeNode has no child tree node, the FirstNode property returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example selects the appropriate TreeNode after determining if the TreeNode passed in is selected and which TreeNode to select. This example assumes that you have a Form with a TreeView control that has a TreeNodeCollection containing several TreeNode objects. It is also assumed that you have a ComboBox with the following items: "Previous", "PreviousVisible", "Next", "NextVisible", "First", and "Last".

[Visual Basic] 
Private Sub SelectNode(node As TreeNode)
   If node.IsSelected Then
      ' Determine which TreeNode to select.
      Select Case myComboBox.Text
         Case "Previous"
            node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.PrevNode
         Case "PreviousVisible"
            node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.PrevVisibleNode
         Case "Next"
            node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.NextNode
         Case "NextVisible"
            node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.NextVisibleNode
         Case "First"
            node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.FirstNode
         Case "Last"
            node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.LastNode
      End Select
   End If
End Sub

private void SelectNode(TreeNode node)
        // Determine which TreeNode to select.
            case "Previous":
                node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.PrevNode;
            case "PreviousVisible":
                node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.PrevVisibleNode;
            case "Next":
                node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.NextNode;
            case "NextVisible":
                node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.NextVisibleNode;
            case "First":
                node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.FirstNode;
            case "Last":
                node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.LastNode;

void SelectNode(TreeNode* node) {
    if (node->IsSelected) {
        // Determine which TreeNode to select.

        String* str = myComboBox->Text;
        if (str->Equals(S"Previous"))
            node->TreeView->SelectedNode = node->PrevNode;
        else if (str->Equals(S"PreviousVisible"))
            node->TreeView->SelectedNode = node->PrevVisibleNode;
        else if (str->Equals(S"Next"))
            node->TreeView->SelectedNode = node->NextNode;
        else if (str->Equals(S"NextVisible"))
            node->TreeView->SelectedNode = node->NextVisibleNode;
        else if (str->Equals(S"First"))
            node->TreeView->SelectedNode = node->FirstNode;
        else if (str->Equals(S"Last"))
            node->TreeView->SelectedNode = node->LastNode;
