    I have a rad panel that I have put a rad tree view in. However, now that the rad tree is within the panel, I cannot get it to collapse. It is always expanded and won't collapse even if you click the button. The two other panels have static data in them and they collapse fine. Can anyone help me with this issue? Here is my code
