How to expand all the child nodes of the selected TreeNodeAdv programatically in WinForms TreeViewAdv?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: TreeViewAdv

Expand the child nodes of selected TreeNodeAdv

In the TreeViewAdv, TreeNodeAdv can be expanded by using the Expand and ExpandAll functions.

1. Expand: This function helps to expand a particular TreeNodeAdv.

2. ExpandAll: This function helps to expand the node and all its sub nodes.


To expand all the child nodes under the selected TreeNodeAdv programmatically, follow the steps:

1. Handle AfterSelect event that is triggered when the TreeNodeAdv is selected.

2. Iterate the TreeNodeAdvCollection and invoke the Expand function.


//The event is raised on TreeNodeAdv selection.
private void treeViewAdv1_AfterSelect(object sender, EventArgs e)
    string selectedNode = this.treeViewAdv1.SelectedNode.Text;
    if (this.treeViewAdv1.Nodes.Count > 0)
        foreach (TreeNodeAdv treeNode in Collect(this.treeViewAdv1.Nodes))
            if (selectedNode == treeNode.Text)
                //Expands all the TreeNodeAdv.


'The event is raised on TreeNodeAdv selection.
Private Sub treeViewAdv1_AfterSelect(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles treeViewAdv1.AfterSelect
   Dim selectedNode As String = Me.treeViewAdv1.SelectedNode.Text
   If Me.treeViewAdv1.Nodes.Count > 0 Then
      For Each treeNode As TreeNodeAdv In Me.treeViewAdv1.Nodes
           If selectedNode = treeNode.Text Then
               'Expands all the TreeNodeAdv.
               Exit For
           End If
      Next treeNode
   End If
End Sub
