Property Value

Type Default Description


An integer value that specifies the node’s state image index.


Nodes can display the following icons:

  • Select Image - two icons that automatically switch when a node gets / loses the focus.
  • State Image - any custom icon.


State Image

State image: Specify image source

The TreeList.StateImageList property specifies an ordered (indexed) collection that stores images. You can use the following image collections:

State image: Assign images to nodes

To specify the index of the image displayed in a particular node, use the following properties and events:

If the index is out of range, no image is displayed.

State image: Respond to clicks

The TreeList.RowStateImageClick event fires when a state image is clicked.


The code below shows how to assign select and state images to nodes.

using DevExpress.XtraTreeList.Nodes;

// Data source for select (left) images.
treeList1.SelectImageList = imageCollection1;
// Use the data source to assign select images to nodes.
// Data source fields do NOT allow you to specify
// two images that depend on the focus.
// This property has priority over the node's
// ImageIndex and SelectImageIndex properties.
treeList1.ImageIndexFieldName = "ImageIndex";
// Data source for state (right) images.
treeList1.StateImageList = imageCollection1;
// Use the Load event to assign images to nodes.
treeList1.Load += TreeList1_Load;

private void TreeList1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    foreach (TreeListNode node in treeList1.Nodes) {
        // The left image displayed when the node is NOT focused.
        node.ImageIndex = 0;
        // The left image displayed when the node is focused.
        node.SelectImageIndex = 1;
        // The right image that does not depend on the focus.
        node.StateImageIndex = 2;
