    Hi there,
    I am new to the telerik controls and am testing the demo out at present. I would like some help if possible regarding the treeview control.

    I am still undecided if i should purchase the control package or if i should just use the ones you get with ajax. These look promising though :)

    Basically i would like to allow a user to select one of the nodes, which will in turn allow them to edit a page. Could someone give me some guidance on how to do this please? 

    It's kind of similar to how umbraco allow users to edit pages. The page will load in a separate part of the page, depending on which node has been selected.

    Hope i have explained it ok lol :)

    Hi Alan,

    One suggestion is by using iframe to show the page and load the corresponding page in ' OnClientNodeClicked ' event of RadTreeView. Here is the example that I tried.

        <telerik:RadTreeView ID="RadTreeView1" runat="server" OnClientNodeClicked="OnClientNodeClicked"
             . . . 
        <iframe id="iframe1" height="400px" width="400px"

    <script type="text/javascript"
    function OnClientNodeClicked(sender, args) 
        var selected = args.get_node().get_value(); // Get the clicked node value 
        var if1 = document.getElementById("iframe1"); 
        if1.src = selected + ".aspx"// set the url for iframe

    Thanks for your response.

    I am actually trying to stay away from iframes. I would like to basically use the treeview as the layout of the site as i am writing a CMS. When a user click on the node it would then go off and load the edit page, and allow the user to edit the content.

    I have seen this done on a number of other CMS's and on some other controls similar to RadControls. Just wondering if its possible or not
