    I have a TreeView instance that is bound to a SiteMapXmlData source.  All nodes have a bound NavigateUrl property.   I'm utilizing the tree view as a means to navigate a website.

    How do I avoid rendering the HTML mark-up for nodes that are not displayed (e.g. not expanded)? Currently all of these nodes are hidden via "display:none".  Since I'm posting back on every click there is no need to toggle node visibility client-side which creates a lot of extra mark-up which I like to avoid.

    Neither the NodeCreated and NodeDataBound events seem to help to determine what nodes get written out with "display:none" style.  The node "Visible" properties are always true and the attribute "display" is empty.

    Hi gfaus,

    RadTreeView renders all tree nodes added in the Nodes collection no matter if they are initially visible or not. If you want to hide nodes that are not expandable you should traverse their parent nodes to see if they are expanded.
