I have a simple TreeView that I would like to use as both a Navigation and File Manager tool. I have nodes with CheckBoxes that I would like to select without generating a PostBack but if I click the node (textual portion of the link) it opens up another page (the NavigateURL).

It seems that if I enable the AutoPostBackOnNodeSelect and click a checkbox I get a postback also. I do not what to do this. I want to only do a AutoPostback when I select the link and not the checkbox. I want to be able to select all the checkboxes at one time, then click a button to work with those selected items (such as delete them, print them, etc).

How can I mimic the AutoPostBack in client side for the select that uses the NavigateURL property and opens up the page? I am building the tree dynamically by the way.

Hi David,

My sincere apologies for the delay in responding to you.

You have to set AutoPostBackOnNodeCheckChanged as false to avoid postback when the checkbox is clicked. We noticed that node click event is called along with Checkbox click event. This is the cause of the issue. To avoid this we have to cancel the node click event in the clientside such as shown below.

$script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function nodeCheckChange(node)
//Avoids Node click event when the checkbox is Clicked
_sfTreeView1.OnClick(this, event.cancelBubble=true)

However we have attached one sample for your references.


We will get back to you tommorrow regarding your second query.

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

Hi David,

Attached is the sample which helps you to Check and UnCheck all the 'TreeView Nodes' on the button click event.


Please let me know if you have any other concerns.

Hi Shalini,

'Checking' or 'UnChecking' a ParentNode gets its ChildNodes to be checked or unchecked.

Attached is the sample illustrating the sample.


In the above sample 'AutoPostBackOnNodeCheckChanged' is set to true, which triggers a postback and call the serverside function TreeView1_NodeCheckChanged. In 'TreeView1_NodeCheckChanged' we can check or uncheck the subnodes of the TreeView node whose check status has been modified.

Please let us know if you have any further queries.

Thanks for the information. I was able to handle it by setting a flag when the checkbox was done (in the client-side). I then check to see if the previous event (onCheckClick) was true and did not handle the postback. If it was a node selection (and not a CheckBox Selection) I then did the __doPostBack(). Works like a charm.
