Is there any easy way to save the expanded nodes so that when directed away from  the page and coming back, you still have the same nodes expanded as when you left?  I am using a sql database to populate the treeview and all methods i have tried i have been having problems with serialization because it is using SQL im assuming thats why.  I tried to store the expansion states in a session variable and had no luck.  So is there any really easy way to accomplish this?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi Ryan,

How exactly did you use the Session variable?
You can store the state of the treeview in the session like this:

Session["myTreeView"] = RadTreeView1.GetXml(); 

and later restore the treeview state from that session variable:

string treeViewState = (string)Session["treeViewState"];  
RadTreeView1.LoadXmlString(treeViewState); 

I hope this will get you started.

That works wonderfully but for right now i have the save to session code in a button since i can not figure out where to place it to have it save before the user clicks a link and navigates away from the page.  Any ideas?  Like is there an onexpand event that i can have a function handle it and just dump Session("treeViewState") = RadTreeView1.GetXml() there?

Basically, what technique can i use so that any time a node is expanded or collapsed, i can save the treeview to session?  Since it is client side right now for me, then what can i put into the jacascript in the HTML to catch the expansion or collapsing of a node and have the code behind see the event and trigger the save to session (Session("treeViewState") = RadTreeView1.GetXml())

Hi Ryan,

I guess you need to use a navigation control like LinkButton that will perform a postback on click and navigate after that:

asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" OnClick="LinkButton1_Click">Click Here to navigate</asp:LinkButton> 
 
    protected void LinkButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)  
    {  
        //save the session. Alternatively you can save the XML string in a temporary table in the DB  
        Session["myTreeView"] = RadTreeView1.GetXml();   
 
        //navigate  
        Response.Redirect("...");  
    } 

I hope this helps.

I am kind of confused at how to implement that concept.  Here is what i tried in 1.1 and it worked.

<radT:RadTreeView id="RadTreeView1"  BeforeClientClick="BeforeClickHandler" runat="server" NodeCssClassSelect=" "
                            NodeCssClassOver=" " NodeCssClassEdit=" " NodeCssClassDisable=" " NodeCssClass=" " Skin="TSA"></radT:RadTreeView>
                        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
                        </telerik:RadScriptManager>   
                        <telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="RadAjaxManager1" OnAjaxRequest="RadAjaxManager1_AjaxRequest" runat="server">
                        </telerik:RadAjaxManager>
                           
                            <telerik:AjaxSetting_AjaxControlID="RADAJAXMANAGER1"></TELERIK:AJAXSETTING>
                           
                            <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
                            function BeforeClickHandler()
                            {
                            <!--
                                RadAjaxManager1.AjaxRequest();
                                return false;
                            -->
                            }
                            </script>

But now in 2.0 it hangs with this error upon clicking a node to be redirected Microsoft JScript runtime error: Object doesn't support this property or method
and it is referring to the RadAjaxManager1.AjaxRequest(); call.  Any ideas?

Hi Ryan,

So, you are using the "classic" RadTreeView and the new RadAjaxManager? Why don't you use the new RadTreeView as well?

You need to call ajaxRequest() instead of AjaxRequest() method.

All the best,

Hi Ryan.
your approach is working well but it is costlier
one coz we have 7 trees in a single page and those are divided by
tabs. So how to do the same functionality without taking whole XML content into
a session object.

Thanks

Hi Ramakrishna,

You could try to use RadTreeView with RadPersistenceFramework. It allows you to preserve Selected, Checked and expanded nodes. Here is the online demo:

Hi Hristo,
Thank you very much for your reply.I gone through the Demo and saw the code but in the code Session object being used. My questions are 
1) Is it possible without using Session
2) In my case i have total of 7 RadTreeView controls in a single page. So i should use 7 different Session objects ? Absolutely it will hit the performance.


    Protected Sub SaveButton_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        Session("CustomPersistenceSettingsKey") = Me.Session.SessionID
        Dim fileId As String = Session("CustomPersistenceSettingsKey").ToString()
        LoadButton.Enabled = True
        RadPersistenceManager1.StorageProviderKey = fileId
        RadPersistenceManager1.SaveState()
    End Sub

Hi Ramakrishna,

I have replied to your question here:
http://www.telerik.com/forums/radtreeview-save-expanded-state-without-session-object#JgMUUf6GEk-Uw20sHj-TyA

Please do not write in different threads for the same question.

There is no need to have 7 different session objects. We are using the session, because in the demo we need to identify the anonymous users who browse the page.

Hi, I'm looking for help.
I saw the demo posted before using the persistence framework but i can't seem to be able to make it work.
I'm in a situation where I use a radtreeview as links sidebar in my webform, it's actually located in a master page.
The treeview is populated with RadTreeView.LoadContentFile(); method loading it from an xml file.
In which events should I put the load and save sessions?

Thanks, regards

Sorry I forgot some missing informations, I need that the state is saved when the tree nodes state is modified and loaded when the page is redirected to another one or refreshed.

Hi Shawa,

The LoadState(); method should be called, when page is loaded, but after the tree is populated with data. 
The SaveSate() method needs to be called, when you expand any node or when node is selected. Suitable events are NodeExpand and NodeClick.

I am sorry.  I am new to this forum and cannot find how to create a new post.  So, if you would be so kind to answer me in this thread. 
My issue is very similar to what is discussed in this post.  However, it has some peculiarities.I have to maintain an old application which uses RadTreeView.  This RadTreeView is defined as a menu in a master page and repopulated in Page_Init event handler for the master page.  I need to save the current expansion state of the tree and preserve it when the tree is recreated.

What makes my task difficult is that I do not have (or at least I do not know) an event when to catch and preserve the expansion status of the tree.  When tree is collapsed and/or expanded in the browser, I do not get the post back to save the status.  I cannot move the population of the tree from the master page Page_Init to Page_Load handler because it is used in Page_Load event of the content pages, which is triggered before Page_Load of the master page.

So, here is my question: how without changing user's experience (by introducing some bogus link buttons) capture RadTreeView expansion status?

Hi Richard,

The PersistenceFramework is a server control and to use it you will have to make a full post back or at least an ajax call. It is possible to store the expanded and selected nodes in a cookie without making any postbacks. You will have to handle the OnClientNodeExpanded and OnClientNodeSelected events. In these events save the data you need in a cookie. This way you will always have the latest changes.

Finally after you have selected and expanded nodes you will have to restore them somehow. This can be done in the pageLoad event.

function pageLoad() {
   //Restore tree state from the cookie
}

I hope this helps.

Hi,
Is that possible to save state of RadTreeView using "RadPersistenceManager " when expand a node on-demand base ?
I applied for one of the tree which is on-demand base using RadPersistenceManager  and its not working.

Please confirm.

Hello Rama,

The RadMersistenceManager applies state only to existing nodes. In case that the nodes are not loaded it is not possible to apply the saved state.

Hristo,

Thank you very much for your suggestion.  It was working fine... until I got a couple of menu options with the same text.
Unfortunately menu nodes do not have unique IDs so I was identifying the nodes by text.  When there are more than one node with the same text, preserving the menu state becomes impossible.

Would you have any suggestion on how to rectify this situation?

Hi Richard,

I would suggest that you try the following approach:
  • Enable the menu selection:
    <telerik:RadMenu runat="server" EnableSelection="true" ID="RadMenu1">
  • In the cookie store the item's text or value.
  • Use menu client api to find and select the item you want:
    function restoreSelectedItem() {
        //...
        var menu = $find('RadMenu1');
        var item = menu.findItemByText("Home");
        if (item != null) {
            item.select();
        }
    }

I hope this helps.
