Legacy Code Example

The following code example changes the size 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 that contains a TreeView control with 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;
