NodeFont Property

TreeNode.NodeFont Property

 

Gets or sets the font that is used to display the text on the tree node label.

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

public Font NodeFont { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Font

The Font that is used to display the text on the tree node label.

If null, the Font used is the Font property value of the TreeView control that this node is attached to.

System_CAPS_noteNote

If the node font is larger than the Font property value that is set in the TreeView control, the tree node label text is clipped.

The following code example changes the size of NodeFont to the specified size and adjusts the ItemHeight of the tree node's parent TreeView control. This example requires that you have a Form with a TreeView control that contains a collection of TreeNode objects, and a ComboBox that contains font sizes.

private void Button1_Click(object sender,EventArgs e)
{
   myTreeView.ItemHeight = 5;
   myTreeView.SelectedNode.NodeFont = new Font("Arial",5);

   // Get the font size from combobox.
   string selectedString = myComboBox.SelectedItem.ToString();
   int myNodeFontSize = Int32.Parse(selectedString);

   // Set the font of root node.
   myTreeView.SelectedNode.NodeFont = new Font("Arial",myNodeFontSize);
   for(int i = 0; i < myTreeView.Nodes[0].Nodes.Count; i++)
   {
      // Set the font of child nodes.
      myTreeView.Nodes[0].Nodes[i].NodeFont =
        new Font("Arial",myNodeFontSize);
   }

   // Get the bounds of the tree node.
   Rectangle myRectangle = myTreeView.SelectedNode.Bounds;
   int myNodeHeight = myRectangle.Height;
   if(myNodeHeight < myNodeFontSize)
   {
      myNodeHeight = myNodeFontSize;
   }
   myTreeView.ItemHeight = myNodeHeight + 4;
}
