Editing documentation

windows forms treeview editing


The style architecture employed by the advanced treeview control lets users define unique styles for different parts of a tree. Each node then inherits these different styles before being rendered. The different styles users can specify in the tree by order of inheritance are: Global (defined in advanced tree view instance), child (defined in a parent node that applies to all immediate children of the parent node), node Level (defined for nodes at a particular level in the tree), and node specific (defined in each tree node). In addition, users can define base styles that can be inherited when defining any of the above styles.

We do not sell the WinForms TreeView control separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion WinForms suite, which contains over 100 WinForms controls, including TreeView. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for WinForms suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, our 100+ WinForms controls, including TreeView, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their TreeView alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 100+ WinForms controls for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.
