    How can I change the style of the selected node in Javascript? The treeview has a set_cssClass method but that changes the style of the node and not the selection itself. If you use set_cssClass and change the style using set_cssClass and then select a different node, I will see the node has changed its style. What I want though is that WHILE the node is selected, I change the style of the selection itself. As soon as the selection is made on a different node, the style of the selection needs to revert back to its original css while the node that had the style changed remains changed. This is needed to implement a cut/paste function where the node being cut has a different style. When the user cuts the node using ctrl-x, I need to modify the selection immediately so that the user sees right away that the selected node is being cut.

    Hi Polaris431,

    You can set the selectedCssClass. Here is a short demo:

        <style type="text/css">
            .Selected .rtIn
                color: red !important;

        <telerik:RadTreeView runat="server" ID="RadTreeView2" Height="100px" Width="200px"
            Style="overflow: hidden">
                <telerik:RadTreeNode Text="Node1" />

        <script type="text/javascript">
            function pageLoad() {
                var treeView = $find("<%=RadTreeView2.ClientID %>");
                var node = treeView.get_nodes().getNode(0);
