How to create custom painted nodes in TreeViewAdv control?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: TreeViewAdv |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


Custom painted nodes can be created by subscribing to the paint events of TreeViewAdv.To get the event fired ,we need to use OwnerDrawNodes property.Then We could apply any graphics style to nodes in BeforeNodePaint event.


// Creating custom painted nodes

private void treeViewAdv1_BeforeNodePaint(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.TreeNodeAdvPaintEventArgs e)


LinearGradientBrush lBrush = new LinearGradientBrush(e.Node.TextBounds, Color.Gold, Color.Beige, LinearGradientMode.Horizontal); e.Graphics.FillRectangle(lBrush, e.Node.TextBounds); e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(new Pen(Color.Red), e.Node.TextBounds);



' Creating custom painted nodes

Private Sub TreeViewAdv1_BeforeNodePaint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.TreeNodeAdvPaintEventArgs) Handles TreeViewAdv1.BeforeNodePaint

Dim lBrush As LinearGradientBrush lBrush = New LinearGradientBrush(e.Node.TextBounds, Color.Gold, Color.Beige, LinearGradientMode.Horizontal)

e.Graphics.FillRectangle(lBrush, e.Node.TextBounds) e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(New Pen(Color.Red), e.Node.TextBounds)

End Sub
