    I'm hoping someone else has run into this problem.  I have a simple page with a treeview and a button.  The button calls code that exports the treeview to a .csv file.  If a node is expanded then I want to export the child nodes as well.  For some reason in code behind it is telling me that all nodes at level 1 are collapsed even though I expanded them before I clicked the export button.  Any ideas?

    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>

    Hello Casey,

    This happens because you are rebinding the TreeView on each postback in the Page_Load event.

    There are two possible solutions.
    1. If you don't really need to rebind the treeview on each postback (the nodes will be persisted if you add them in the Page_Load event), you can bind it only on initial load. Like so:
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!Page.IsPostBack)
            //bind tree

    2. The second solution is to bind the TreeView in the Page_Init event instead.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  I knew it had to be something silly but I wasn't able to find it.
