Our goal has always been to provide an API that is very close to that of the common .NET UI controls, thus ensuring our customers will have a flat learning curve wherever possible. In the treeview control supplied with the .NET Framework
(please have in mind it does not support databinding out of the box), the nodes have a general purpose property called Tag
which gets/sets an object
. It is used to associate objects with tree nodes. In our RadTreeView we use the same property to associate objects with nodes. In the databinding case you will need to preload the underlying databound item there.
Let me know if you need additional assistance.
