Namespace: DevExpress.Web.ASPxTreeList

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.ASPxTreeList.v19.2.dll


public virtual object GetValue(
    string fieldName
Public Overridable Function GetValue(
    fieldName As String
) As Object


Name Type Description
fieldName String

A String value that specifies the name of the data source field.


Type Description

An object that represents the specified cell's value.


To specify node values, use the TreeListNode.SetValue method.


Assume that ASPxTreeList is bound to an "Order Details" data table (NWind data base), which contains "UnitPrice", "Quantity" and "Discount" fields. There is no field that represents the total sum, as this can be calculated manually as follows: UnitPrice*Quantity*(1-Discount). This example shows how to add an unbound column to the ASPxTreList control to represent the total sum of an order.

The image below shows the result.


protected void TreeList_CustomUnboundColumnData(object sender, TreeListCustomUnboundColumnDataEventArgs e)
    if (e.Column.FieldName == "Total")
        decimal unitPrice = Convert.ToDecimal(e.Node.GetValue("UnitPrice"));
        decimal quantity = Convert.ToDecimal(e.Node.GetValue("Quantity"));
        decimal discount = Convert.ToDecimal(e.Node.GetValue("Discount"));
        e.Value = unitPrice * quantity * (1 - discount);
