Asked On March 17, 2016 01:10 PM UTC

Hello. I'm now trying to use your GridTreeControl in my WPF Application. I used the sample from a dashboard, where collection of items was populated in ViewModel constructor. I made some changes into this sample and now I'm using EF context to get a list of objects for a collection from DB. Everything works pretty fine, and I see that GridTreeControl is populated after I start my app.
But now I'm wondering, how can I deal with:
1. Notifying GridTreeControl, when I add Items to the collection, because any changes to my collection aren'r rendereg in GridViewControl;
2. Getting the object, corresponding to selected node into my ViewModel, to pass some of it's properties into other controls and elements, using binding and INPC properties of my ViewModel.
Thank you.

Hi Dzmitry,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

Regarding query: Notifying GridTreeControl, when I add Items to the collection, because any changes to my collection aren'r rendereg in GridViewControl;

When you dynamically loading nodes in GridTreeControl then the underlying collection will be updated when you add/update the itemssource.

Please find the sample below,

Regarding Query: Getting the object, corresponding to selected node into my ViewModel, to pass some of it's properties into other controls and elements, using binding and INPC properties of my ViewModel.

You can get the selected node in selection changed event and getting this in viewmodel by using below code example:

this.treeGrid.Loaded += treeGrid_Loaded;

void treeGrid_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

        {

            this.treeGrid.InternalGrid.SelectionChanged += InternalGrid_SelectionChanged;

        }


        void InternalGrid_SelectionChanged(object sender, GridSelectionChangedEventArgs e)

        {

            //getting the selected node

            var viewModel = this.treeGrid.DataContext as ViewModel;

            viewModel.GridTreeNode = (this.treeGrid.SelectedNode as GridTreeNode).Item;

            var parentItem = (this.treeGrid.SelectedNode as GridTreeNode).ParentItem;
        }

Not sure if I am doing something wrong, but I tries the example mentioned above http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/forum/123440/ze/TreeGrid_DynamicallyAddingNodes1614716107 

Although it did add the new child item when you click the button, there seems to be a problem. The new node is added and an expander icon is added to the new parent node. The state of this icon is wrong though. It initially appears as "expanded" though you cannot see the new node. You need to click it twice of actually close and open the new branch and then you can see you new node.

What can be done to fix that?

Also, how would you change it so that the new node added becomes the selected node?

thanks

Hi Dzmitry,

In Our previous sample, we have added an item in parent node itself only and this item will not be added to the underlying collection. Hence this node is not reflected in view. We have modified the sample and you can see a newly added node without collapse/expand the tree grid.


Code Example:

var viewModel = this.treeGrid.DataContext as ViewModel;

         

            if (treeGrid.SelectedNodes.Count == 0)

            {

                viewModel.PersonDetails.Add(new PersonInfo() { LastName = "Sunil", FirstName = "Pradap", MyEyeColor = "Gray", DOB = new DateTime() });

                treeGrid.InternalGrid.SelectedNodes.Clear();

                treeGrid.InternalGrid.SelectedNodes.Add(this.treeGrid.InternalGrid.Nodes[treeGrid.InternalGrid.Nodes.Count - 1]);

                this.treeGrid.InternalGrid.Nodes[treeGrid.InternalGrid.Nodes.Count - 1].IsSelected = true;

            }

            else

            {

                var parentNodeItem = (treeGrid.SelectedNode as GridTreeNode).Item as PersonInfo;

                var parentNode = treeGrid.SelectedNodes[0];

                int parentIndex = this.treeGrid.InternalGrid.Nodes.IndexOf(parentNode);


                if (parentNodeItem.Children==null)

                {

                    parentNodeItem.Children = new ObservableCollection<PersonInfo>();

                }               

                parentNodeItem.Children.Add((new PersonInfo()

                {

                    LastName = "Sunil",

                    FirstName = "Pradap",

                    MyEyeColor = "Gray",

                    DOB = new DateTime()

                }));

               

                treeGrid.InternalGrid.SelectedNodes.Clear();

                this.treeGrid.InternalGrid.CurrentCell.Deactivate();

                this.treeGrid.InternalGrid.Model.Selections.Clear();

                treeGrid.InternalGrid.SelectedNodes.Add(this.treeGrid.InternalGrid.Nodes[parentIndex + parentNode.ChildNodes.Count]);

                this.treeGrid.InternalGrid.Nodes[parentIndex + parentNode.ChildNodes.Count].IsSelected = true;


            }



Regarding query: Also, how would you change it so that the new node added becomes the selected node?

You can set the new node as selected node by adding new node to selected nodes as shown in the following code example,

Code Example:

  treeGrid.InternalGrid.SelectedNodes.Clear();

 treeGrid.InternalGrid.SelectedNodes.Add(this.treeGrid.InternalGrid.Nodes[parentIndex + parentNode.ChildNodes.Count]);
 this.treeGrid.InternalGrid.Nodes[parentIndex + parentNode.ChildNodes.Count].IsSelected = true;


Please find the modified sample from the below location,
