Is it possible to change the color of the selected TreeNodeAdv if the TreeViewAdv control looses
the focus?
Now it gets a ligth grey color and I would like to change it to blue. So that I get the same color independently if
the treeview has focus or not.

Best regards,

Hi Michael


Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.


Yes, this reported requirement can be achieved by using properties named “HideSelection”, “InactiveSelectedNodeBackground” and “InactiveSelectedNodeForeColor” in TreeViewAdv. Please make use code snippet for your reference.


Code Snippet: [C#]



            this.treeViewAdv1.HideSelection = false;

            this.treeViewAdv1.InactiveSelectedNodeBackground = new Syncfusion.Drawing.BrushInfo(Color.MediumBlue);

            this.treeViewAdv1.InactiveSelectedNodeForeColor = Color.White;



We have also prepared sample for your reference and it can be downloaded from below location.
