public event TreeListInvalidNodeExceptionEventHandler InvalidNodeException

Event Data

The InvalidNodeException event's data class is TreeListInvalidNodeExceptionEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
ErrorText Gets or sets the error description.
Exception Gets the exception that raised the TreeListView.InvalidNodeException event.
ExceptionMode Gets or sets a value that specifies how an exception should be handled.
Handled Gets or sets a value that indicates the present state of the event handling for a routed event as it travels the route. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
Node Gets the processed node. Inherited from TreeListNodeEventArgs.
OriginalSource Gets the original reporting source as determined by pure hit testing, before any possible Source adjustment by a parent class. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
RoutedEvent Gets or sets the RoutedEvent associated with this RoutedEventArgs instance. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
Row Gets the processed row. Inherited from TreeListNodeEventArgs.
Source Gets or sets a reference to the object that raised the event. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
WindowCaption Gets or sets the error window’s caption.

The event data class exposes the following methods:

Method Description
InvokeEventHandler(Delegate, Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a way to invoke event handlers in a type-specific way, which can increase efficiency over the base implementation. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
OnSetSource(Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a notification callback entry point whenever the value of the Source property of an instance changes. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.


Use the TreeListView.ValidateNode event to validate entered values. After this event is handled, the InvalidNodeException event occurs and allows you to specify how to display validation errors.

Use the TreeListInvalidNodeExceptionEventArgs.ExceptionMode property to specify which action to perform when a user enters an invalid value. You can display a message box with an error description, suppress an action, throw an exception, or ignore the validation result.

If you want to maintain a clean MVVM pattern and specify an error presentation in a View Model, create a command and bind it to the InvalidNodeExceptionCommand property.

Refer to the following help topic for more information: Row Validation.
