On TreeViewAdv, if I set Node.LabelEdit = True then if a user selects a node and presses F2 it will go into edit mode where the user can edit the Node.Text.

How can I place an existing node into edit mode when the user (for example) clicks on a Rename button on a toolbar or toolstrip?

Hi Bob,


Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.


You can achieve your requirement by using the following code snippet and  also I have attached a simple sample that demonstrates the same.




    private void toolStripButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)



            this.treeViewAdv1.LabelEdit = true;

            SendKeys.Send(" {F2}");

Please let us know if you need any other details.
