    In my TreeView, while I have a node selected and I click another node in the tree, if I cancel the select via "e.preventDefault()" in my Select event handler, the selection is cancelled but the node I clicked retains focus.  Is there a way of preventing this (removing focus from the node I clicked)?  I tried adding code to remove the "k-state-focused" class from the node, but it does not work...

    $("#treeview_tv_active span.k-state-focused").removeClass("k-state-focused");

    Hello Dave,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    In order to remove the focused styles from the clicked item you should wrap the code for removing the k-state-focused class within a setTimeout function:
        select: function (e) {
            setTimeout(function () {

    Could you please give the above approach a try and let me know if the result meets your exact requirements.

    I am looking forward to your reply.
