Hi,

When using a node's Nodes.Clear() method the tree view scrolls up to the top and shows the tree view's first node.

If I load the Form2 and scroll down a bit so the first node is no longer visible, and check the check box, then double click on a node it will expand, and make the top node visible.

My work around is to remove each node individually, i.e.
If I load the Form2 and scroll down a bit so the first node is no longer visible, then double click on a node it will expand.

Public Class Form2
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form
  
    'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.
    <System.Diagnostics.DebuggerNonUserCode()> _
    Protected Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)
        Try
            If disposing AndAlso components IsNot Nothing Then
                components.Dispose()
            End If
        Finally
            MyBase.Dispose(disposing)
        End Try
    End Sub
  
    'Required by the Windows Form Designer
    Private components As System.ComponentModel.IContainer
  
    'NOTE: The following procedure is required by the Windows Form Designer
    'It can be modified using the Windows Form Designer.  
    'Do not modify it using the code editor.
    <System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThrough()> _
    Private Sub InitializeComponent()
        Me.RadTreeView1 = New Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeView()
        Me.CheckBox1 = New System.Windows.Forms.CheckBox()

Hi Clive,

The best way is to use the NodeExpandedChanging event in this way:

    Private Sub RadTreeView1_NodeExpandedChanging(sender As System.Object, e As Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeViewCancelEventArgs) Handles RadTreeView1.NodeExpandedChanging
 
        Dim selectedNode = RadTreeView1.SelectedNode
 
        If selectedNode Is Nothing Then Return
 
        Me.RadTreeView1.TreeViewElement.BeginUpdate()
 
        If CheckBox1.Checked Then
            selectedNode.Nodes.Clear()
        Else
            While selectedNode.Nodes.Count > 0
                selectedNode.Nodes.RemoveAt(0)
            End While
        End If
 
        For i = 0 To 10
            Dim node = selectedNode.Nodes.Add("Expando " + i.ToString)
        Next
 
        Me.RadTreeView1.TreeViewElement.EndUpdate(False, Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeViewElement.UpdateActions.ItemRemoved)
    End Sub
End Class

I hope this helps.

Hi,

Is there a public issue tracked on this?  Or Nodes.Clear() expected to always select the first node in the tree?  I'd like to vote on it if it there is an issue.

I have a similar problem. Every call of Node.Clear() scrolls TreeView to first node. This is thery annoying. Telerik version is 2011.3.11.1219. How can I at least remember and restore first visible node, before (I hope) you fix this?

Hello Alex,

You can save the scroll position and get it back after nodes are cleared. You can use the following code snippet as a sample:
int scrollValue = this.radTreeView1.VScrollBar.Value;
int maximum = this.radTreeView1.VScrollBar.Maximum;
 
this.radTreeView1.Nodes[0].Nodes[0].Nodes[9].Nodes.Clear();
 
this.radTreeView1.VScrollBar.Value = scrollValue - (int)Math.Abs(this.radTreeView1.VScrollBar.Maximum - maximum);
