Hi there

[WebMethod]  
    public RadTreeNodeData[] GetManufacturers(RadTreeNodeData node, object context)  
    {  
        IDictionary<string, object> contextDictionary = (IDictionary<string, object>)context;  
        String sql = "";  
        String parentname = "";  
        if (node.Value == "HardwareType")  
        {  
            sql = "SELECT 'Manufacturer' as [value], manufacturer as [text], hardwareType as [parentName] from tHardwareCatalog WHERE hardwareType = '" + node.Text + "' GROUP BY hardwareType, manufacturer ORDER BY manufacturer";  
        }  
        else if (node.Value == "Manufacturer")  
        {  

            parentname = node.Attributes["parentName"].ToString();  

            sql = "SELECT id as [value], model as [text], manufacturer as [parentName] from tHardwareCatalog WHERE hardwareType = '" + parentname +"' AND manufacturer = '" + node.Text + "' ORDER BY model";  
        }  
 
        SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(sql, ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["RemoteSqlServerData"].ConnectionString);  
        DataTable data = new DataTable();  
        adapter.Fill(data);  
        List<RadTreeNodeData> result = new List<RadTreeNodeData>();  
        foreach (DataRow row in data.Rows)  
        {  
            RadTreeNodeData itemData = new RadTreeNodeData();  
            itemData.Text = row["text"].ToString();  
            itemData.Value = row["value"].ToString();  
            itemData.Attributes.Add("parantName",row["parentName"].ToString());  
            if (row["value"].ToString() == "Manufacturer")  
            {  
                itemData.ExpandMode = TreeNodeExpandMode.WebService;  
            }  
            result.Add(itemData);  
        }  
        return result.ToArray();  
    } 

When I create nodes with a web service, I also want to add attibutes to the node, so that I can read it some other stage.

It does not seem to work."The given key was not present in the dictionary" Error.

Please advise

Hi Guss,

Please try setting the Attributes of a node in this way:

node.Attributes["attr1"] = "attr1 value from webservice"
node.Attributes["attr2"] = "attr2 value from webservice"

I hope this helps.




Best wishes,

Hi there, its actually the other way round.
The web service to get the attribute from the selected node.

But i've figured it out.

In the web service I get it out of the context object (after making it a dictionary)

 

String hardwaretype = (string)contextDictionary["hardwaretype"];
String useinrefresh = (string)contextDictionary["useinrefresh"];
String refreshgroup = (string)contextDictionary["refreshgroup"];

and in the page, I pass the information into the context object:

function
NodePopulatingCatalogId(sender, eventArgs)
{
    var node = eventArgs.get_node(); 
    var context = eventArgs.get_context(); 
    if (node.get_value() == "Manufacturer")
    {
        var parentname = node.get_parent().get_text();  
        context[
"parentname"] = parentname; 
    }
    var hardwaretype = document.getElementById("<%= hardwaretype.ClientID %>"); 
    var useinrefresh = document.getElementById("<%= useinrefresh.ClientID %>"); 
    var refreshgroup = document.getElementById("<%= refreshgroup.ClientID %>"); 
    context[
"hardwaretype"] = hardwaretype.value;
    context[
"useinrefresh"] = useinrefresh.value; 
    context[
"refreshgroup"] = refreshgroup.value; 
 }
