    I am new to Telerik components, and this is probably a question which is easy to answer ;

    I have a treeview control on my page. All nodes in the tree have unique Ids. The treeview is not linked to a datasource; the nodes are static.

    I need to catch a node selected event, and get the node Id. This is to be forwarded to other functions to enable functionality. It seems to me that I need to have a ActionLink on the nodes for the onSelect event to trigger. (?) I do not want to use the treeview for ActionLink style navigation, how can I catch onSelect events and simply get the Id of the node?

    Hello Havard,

    If I understand correctly, you are rendering the TreeView nodes as list items with an ID attribute. If that is the case, you can get the id in the select event handler by accessing the e.node parameter. See the following example from the documentation. It shows how to access the id of a datasource-bound treeview, but the same approach (using the e.node parameter) can be used for any TreeView rendering.
