ASPxTreeView.AllowSelectNode Property

Gets or sets a value specifying whether the node selection feature is available to end-users.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v20.2.dll

Declaration

[DefaultValue(false)]
public bool AllowSelectNode { get; set; }
<DefaultValue(False)>
Public Property AllowSelectNode As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean

false

true if nodes can be selected; otherwise false.

Remarks

If the AllowSelectNode property is enabled, end-users can select a node by clicking on it. Note that only one node at a time can be selected within an ASPxTreeView control. The currently selected node can be obtained by using the ASPxTreeView.SelectedNode property.

 

For more information see the Selection topic.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to find a node by its text on the client side.

In the example we use the GetNodeByText(text) method to search for the required node. If a node has been found, the code iterates through parent nodes to expand them using the SetExpanded(value) method. After that the found note is selected using the SetSelectedNode(node) method. Note, that the ASPxTreeView's AllowSelectNode property is set to true to allow node selection.

View Example

<script>
function FindNode(s, e) {

    //Check the input data
    if (textbox.GetText()==''){
        alert('Please, input name of a node');
        return;
    }
    if (treeview.GetNodeByText(textbox.GetText()) == null){
        alert('The ' + textbox.GetText() + ' node was not found');
        return;
    }
    var node = treeview.GetNodeByText(textbox.GetText());

    //Iterate through the parent nodes to expand them
    var nodesparent = node.parent;
    while(nodesparent != null) {
        nodesparent.SetExpanded(true);
        nodesparent = nodesparent.parent
    }

    //Select the found node
    treeview.SetSelectedNode(node);
}
