How to change the TextColor of the subitems of the selected node to highlight it?

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


This behavior can be acheived using TreeViewAdv''s MouseDown event.


private void treeViewAdv1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)


if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Left)

if (this.treeViewAdv1.PointToNode(new System.Drawing.Point(e.X, e.Y)) == null) return;

TreeNodeAdv node = this.treeViewAdv1.PointToNode(new System.Drawing.Point(e.X, e.Y));

if (node.HasChildren)


foreach (TreeNodeAdv n in node.Nodes)


n.TextColor= Color.Blue;





Private Sub treeViewAdv1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseEventArgs) Handles treeViewAdv1.MouseDown

If e.Button = MouseButtons.Left Then

If Me.treeViewAdv1.PointToNode(New System.Drawing.Point(e.X, e.Y)) Is Nothing Then


End If

End If

Dim node As TreeNodeAdv = Me.treeViewAdv1.PointToNode(New System.Drawing.Point(e.X, e.Y))

If node.HasChildren Then

For Each n As TreeNodeAdv In node.Nodes

n.TextColor= Color.Blue

Next n

End If

End Sub
