[Visual Basic]
Public ReadOnly Property Node As TreeNode
[C#]

Property Value

The TreeNode that has been checked, expanded, collapsed, or selected.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example illustrates a customized TreeView. By inheriting the TreeView class, this custom version has all the functionality of a normal TreeView. A unique appearance is provided by changing various property values in the constructor. Because ShowPlusMinus is set to false, the customized control also overrides OnAfterSelect so that nodes can be expanded and collapsed when they are clicked.

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] A control that is customized in this way can be used throughout an organization, making it easy to provide a consistent interface without requiring the control properties to be specified in each individual project.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Class CustomizedTreeView
    Inherits TreeView

    Public Sub New()
        ' Customize the TreeView control by setting various properties.
        BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.CadetBlue
        FullRowSelect = True
        HotTracking = True
        Indent = 34
        ShowPlusMinus = False

        ' The ShowLines property must be false for the FullRowSelect 
        ' property to work.
        ShowLines = False
    End Sub 'New


    Protected Overrides Sub OnAfterSelect(ByVal e As TreeViewEventArgs)
        ' Confirm that the user initiated the selection.
        ' This prevents the first node from expanding when it is
        ' automatically selected during the initialization of 
        ' the TreeView control.
        If e.Action <> TreeViewAction.Unknown Then
            If e.Node.IsExpanded Then
                e.Node.Collapse()
            Else
                e.Node.Expand()
            End If
        End If

        ' Remove the selection. This allows the same node to be
        ' clicked twice in succession to toggle the expansion state.
        SelectedNode = Nothing
    End Sub 'OnAfterSelect
