Hi,

It's very simple -- I have a RadPanelBar hierarchy of items with 3 top-level items say), and I want to write code to change this for a hierarchy that instead has the children (i.e. Level 1 nodes) of the first item as its top-level items.  In other words, I want to replace the hierarchy tree with a subtree starting one level down, in code.  This *must* be simple, surely; yet I can't seem to do it!  Having seen no obvious method to use, I have resorted to manually copying the subtree to a temporary RadPanelBar and then swapping it for the original one, but I keep running into this error:

Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute.

What is the recommended way to do this?

Cheers,

Ed Graham

Hi Ed,

I couldn't understand your goal. Could you please be more specific? Are you trying to achieve the case demonstrated in this example?

The error you are getting is a generic .NET exception which occurs when you modify a collection which you are currently traversing.

Hello Albert,

Thank you for your reply.  What I am trying to do is to replace the root item of a my RadPanelBar with one of the child items, effectively replacing the tree with a sub-tree.  To illustrate with an example, supposing I have the following structure of items in my PanelBar:

                              A1 (root)
                       |                |
                      B1           B2
                    |       |       |       |
                  C1    C2   C3   C4

I would like to replace it with this structure of panel items:

                   B2 (root)
               |          |
             C3      C4

If I simply try to overwrite the lower-level items in the PanelBar with those further down the tree, I get the error mentioned above.

All advice gratefully received,

Ed

Hi Ed,

I suspect that you use foreach loop to achieve your task.

Then it is expected to receive the error.

I suggest you replace the foreach loop with for loop.

For Example:
 for (int i = 0; i < RadPanelBar1.Items.Count; i++)  
 {  
    if (RadPanelBar1.Items[i].Level == 1)  
    {  
            RadPanelBar1.Items.Remove(RadPanelBar1.Items[i]);  
    }  

Hope this helps.

Hi Rosi,

Thanks for your suggestion.  Unfortunately, this does not solve my problem.  I need to change the root element of the tree, as described in my post above.  I have tried this code:

    rpbLHNav.DataSource = sdsTree;
    rpbLHNav.DataBind();
    // first remove all unwanted top-level items
    for (int i = rpbLHNav.Items.Count; i > 0; i--)
    {
        RadPanelItem rpi = rpbLHNav.Items[i - 1];
        // we want the new top-level items to be the children of the item with ID newRootID
        if (rpi.Value != newRootID)
        {
            rpbLHNav.Items.Remove(rpi);
        }
    }
    // now copy the old tree to a new tree
    RadPanelBar rpb2 = new RadPanelBar();
    for (int i = rpbLHNav.Items[0].Items.Count; i > 0; i--)
    {
        // adding the children of the item with ID newRootID
        rpb2.Items.Add(rpbLHNav.Items[0].Items[i-1]);
    }
    // now replace the old tree with the new tree
    rpbLHNav = rpb2;
    // this looks as though it should be OK, yet the same old root keeps appearing ...
This looks like it should work, yet the old root element is still shown on the page (I don't know why).

Please help!  This is very frustrating, as I am sure it must be a simple operation yet I cannot work out how to do it.  (If we had access to pointers I would simply swap the pointer to old the root with the pointer to the new element ... !)

Regards,

Ed Graham

Hi Ed,

Simply changing the reference to the panelbar:
rpbLHNav = rpb2;

won't do nothing. You should remove the old panelbar from the controls collection of its parent control and then add the new panelbar in its place.
