You can handle these events interchangeably to respond to node selection changes.

In versions prior to v21.1, the SelectionChanged event does not fire when a node receives focus.

Multiple Row Selection (treeList.OptionsSelection.MultiSelect option is true)

The SelectionChanged event fires every time a node is selected or deselected. Use the TreeList.Selection property to identify currently selected nodes.


The following sample code displays the number of currently selected nodes in a status bar. The TreeList.SelectionChanged event is used to respond to changing the selection.

Selections - Changed

using DevExpress.XtraTreeList;

private void treeList1_SelectionChanged(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    string s = (sender as TreeList).Selection.Count.ToString() + " node(s) selected";
    barStaticItem1.Caption = s;
