Can I selectively display check boxes for the nodes in a TreeViewAdv control?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: TreeViewAdv |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |

You can control the display of check boxes for each TreeNodeAdvs in the TreeViewAdv control with the TreeNodeAdv.ShowCheckBoxes property. The following code sample shows how you can display check boxes only for the first level of child nodes below the parent node:


//Show Checkbox only for the first level of child nodes

int i = 0;

while (i < this.treeViewAdv1.Nodes.Count)


int j = 0;

while (j < this.treeViewAdv1.Nodes[i].Nodes.Count)


this.treeViewAdv1.Nodes[i].Nodes[j].ShowCheckBox = true;






'Show Checkbox only for the first level of child nodes

Dim i As Integer = 0

While i < Me.treeViewAdv1.Nodes.Count

Dim j As Integer = 0


While j < Me.treeViewAdv1.Nodes(i).Nodes.Count

Me.treeViewAdv1.Nodes(i).Nodes(j).ShowCheckBox = True

j = j + 1

End While


i = i + 1

End While
