ASPxClientTreeView.GetSelectedNode Method

Returns the selected node within the ASPxTreeView control on the client side.


GetSelectedNode(): ASPxClientTreeViewNode


Type Description

An ASPxClientTreeViewNode object that represents the selected node.


If the ASPxTreeView.AllowSelectNode property is set to true, end-users are allowed to select nodes via mouse clicks. The selected node can be obtained on the client side by using the GetSelectedNode method. If there isn’t a selected node within a ASPxTreeView or selection is prohibited, the GetSelectedNode method returns null. In order to select a specific node on the client side, use the ASPxTreeView’s ASPxClientTreeView.SetSelectedNode method.

To learn more see the Selection topic.


The code example below shows how you can change a node’s text on the client side.

<dx:aspxtreeview id="ASPxTreeView1" runat="server" allowselectnode="True" clientinstancename="treeview" DataSourceID="XmlDataSource1">

<dx:aspxtextbox id="ASPxTextBox1" runat="server" clientinstancename="textbox" width="170px"></dx:aspxtextbox>

<dx:aspxbutton id="ASPxButton1" runat="server" text="Rename Node" AutoPostBack="False">
<ClientSideEvents Click="function(s, e) {treeview.GetSelectedNode().SetText(textbox.GetText());}"></ClientSideEvents>
