I am using  Telerik version: 2009.3.1208.0

My task is to add an arrow to the node (on the right side of the node) so people can left-click on it and access context menu. See picture attached.

I was able to to do that through creating a nodetemplate (subscribing to an interface) and then assigning my class to NodeTemplate property (on Page Init) 

Here is the code:

Imports System.Web.UI
Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls
Imports Telerik.Web.UI
    Public Class MyNodeTemplate
        Implements ITemplate
        Public Sub InstantiateIn(ByVal container As Control) Implements ITemplate.InstantiateIn
            Dim newLabel As New Label()
            newLabel.CssClass = "nodeLabel"
            newLabel.Text = DirectCast(container, RadTreeNode).Text
            Dim arrowDiv As New System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlGenericControl("DIV")
            arrowDiv.Attributes.Add("class", "nodeRightClickArrow")
            arrowDiv.Attributes.Add("onclick", "LeftClickContextMenuClick(event, this);")
        End Sub
    End Class

Everything seems fine EXCEPT:

When expanding one of the nodes, the NodeExpand Event sends the wrong value for the node that is being expanded. For example, if I expand Node 3, it gives me value (e.Node.Value)  for Node 1. See attached picture for more explanation. As a result wrong child nodes are loaded.


1) Why NodeExpand is broken when NodeTemplate is being added ?
2) Any way to achieve  adding an arrow to the node so people can left-click on it without overwriting NodeTemplate?

Hello Makhail,

I tested the issue and it worked properly at my side with the latest version of our controls so it may be a bug that have been fixed. I am attaching my test project. You can also consider the second way of using templates that is described in the bottom part of this help article.

Hope this will be helpful.
