I was expecting that calling AddNodeByPath would automatically create the necessary parent nodes similar to how Directory.Create() works.


However, it just seems to add them all to the closest node it could find (if there are no nodes, then a bunch of "Report.txt" will be in the root node).

I have come up with the following to solve this issue, but I'm wondering if there's an easier way?

private RadTreeNodeCollection AddNode(string path)
    if (path == String.Empty)
        return treeView.Nodes;
    string node = Path.GetFileName(path);
    RadTreeNodeCollection parent = AddNode(Path.GetDirectoryName(path));
    if (parent.Contains(node))
        return parent[node].Nodes;
        return parent.Add(node).Nodes;

Is this a bug, or is it documented somewhere that AddNodeByPath() doesn't create the necessary parent nodes?

Hello Chris,

Thank you for contacting us.

We consider that the AddNodeByPath method should create parent nodes where they do not exist. That is why I have logged it in our Feedback Portal. You can find it on the following url: UI for Winforms Feedback Portal - FIX. RadTreeView - AddNodeByPath does not create parent nodes if they do not exist.
