I am using a "RadTreeView" control where I have declared an event which handles the formatting of the node and also have NodeExpandedChanged event.

The main purpose of the NodeFormatting event is to control the Expander image

private void tvwDocuments_NodeFormatting(object eventSender, TreeNodeFormattingEventArgs eventArgs) { RadTreeNode Node = eventArgs.Node; //Check if Node is the root node, else check if it has no children, and set expand/collapse state accordingly if (Node.Parent == null) { eventArgs.NodeElement.ExpanderElement.Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Collapsed; //Collapsed hides the element completely, hidden just makes it not visible but maintains spacing for it } else if (Node.Nodes.Count == 0) { //Disable drawing of the sign image, then set its size to 0 so that the lines are drawn underneath. eventArgs.NodeElement.ExpanderElement.SignImage = null; eventArgs.NodeElement.ExpanderElement.SignSize = new Size(0, 0); }

 

In my application I have a tree that looks something like the attached image (Tree Structure.png). From the image it will be evident that all nodes are expanded.

The issue what I am facing is, when all nodes are expanded and when the very first node of the parent is collapsed; all the respective nodes "ExpanderImage" is blank. (please refer attached screenshot (UpdatedTreeStructure.png))

Hi, Nishant,

If I understand your requirement correctly, you need to hide the expander item for nodes without any children. Please correct me if I am wrong.

For this purpose, it is necessary to handle the NodeFormatting event. However, please have in mind that node elements are created only for the currently visible nodes and they are being reused during operations like scrolling, expanding, collapsing. In order to avoid any undesired style applied to unexpected visual nodes, make sure that the applied style settings are properly reset. In other words, each statement should have its else clause for restting:

        public RadForm1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            this.radTreeView1.ShowRootLines = true;
            this.radTreeView1.ShowLines = true;
            this.radTreeView1.LineStyle = TreeLineStyle.Dot;
            this.radTreeView1.LineColor = Color.Black;
        }

        private void radTreeView1_NodeFormatting(object sender, TreeNodeFormattingEventArgs e)
        { 
             
            if (e.Node.Parent == null || e.Node.Nodes.Count == 0)
            {
                e.NodeElement.ExpanderElement.Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Collapsed;  
            }
            else if (e.Node.Nodes.Count == 0)
            { 
                e.NodeElement.ExpanderElement.Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Visible; 
            }
            else
            {
                e.NodeElement.ExpanderElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.VisibilityProperty, ValueResetFlags.Local);
 
            }
        }

I have attached my sample project for your reference. Please give it a try and see how it works on your end.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
