I'm using VB .net 2008

I have a custom Group Class that I use as a custom node. It has a textnode and a rectangle.

I want to know the method for programmatically changing the text that is displayed in the textnode.

Thanks in advance

Actually, I do not even know how to obtain the text from a textnode programmatically.

Can you please explain?

Hi Ameel,

The textnode's text can be changed programmatically using the TextNode's "text" property.

I am attaching my sample file herewith for your convenience.

Update me of your experiences.

Happy Coding!

Thanks for that, but its not helping.

But actually it was accessing the textnode within a group that i had trouble with.

But i figured out i could use:
Directcast(group.getchild(i), textnode)

thanks anyway

Hi Ameel,

The code file that demonstrates the dynamic change in the text of the text node is here at:

I am interested in the sample code discussed in this post but it is no longer available. Can you give me an updated link to it?
