public TreeListNode FocusedNode { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A TreeListNode object representing the focused node. null (Nothing in Visual Basic) if no node is focused.


The FocusedNode property allows you to determine the currently focused node or to move node focus. Note also that assigning an existing node to the FocusedNode property makes the specified node visible on screen. This may result in scrolling and expanding collapsed parent nodes.

When node focus changes, the TreeList.FocusedNodeChanged event is raised.

If you assign an invisible node (TreeListNode.Visible) to the FocusedNode property, the property resets to the null value.


The following example shows how to move focus to a specific node. To do this, the requried node is assigned to the TreeList.FocusedNode property.

// Move focus to the first root node.
treeList1.FocusedNode = treeList1.Nodes[0];
