TreeNode.NextVisibleNode Property

Gets the next visible tree node.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public TreeNode NextVisibleNode { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode
A TreeNode that represents the next visible tree node.

The NextVisibleNode can be a child, sibling, or a tree node from another branch. If there is no next tree node, the NextVisibleNode property returns null.

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

	private void SelectNode(TreeNode node)
	{
		if(node.IsSelected)
		{
			// Determine which TreeNode to select. 
			switch(myComboBox.Text)
			{
				case "Previous":
					node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.PrevNode;
					break;
				case "PreviousVisible":
					node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.PrevVisibleNode;
					break;
				case "Next":
					node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.NextNode;
					break;
				case "NextVisible":
					node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.NextVisibleNode;
					break;
				case "First":
					node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.FirstNode;
					break;
				case "Last":
					node.TreeView.SelectedNode = node.LastNode;
					break;
			}
		}
		node.TreeView.Focus();
	}
