    I would like to collapse all of the nodes in the treeview and then expand the treeview to a specific node. I have found that when i call the collapse function like treeview.collapse('.k-item') and then try to call treeview.expandTo(dataItem) the treeview closes and does not expand to the node. In order to get it to work I have to delay the expandTo by using setTimout. This is not ideal. Any help would be appreciated.

    Dojo example: http://dojo.telerik.com/ATiXUbuC

                    var node = treeView.findByText('Sofas');

    Hello Josh,

    Thank you for reporting the problem.

    There is similar issue logged in our GitHub repository. Based on your example, I added additional scenario for reproduction to the issue. I also increased the priority of the bug. You can track our progress on resolving it on the following link. Until the bug is getting fixed, you could set a delay in order to expand the needed node, the way it is on clicking the 'Collapse then expand to node (with delay)' button.

    As a small sign of gratitude for reporting a bug I have updated your Telerik points.
