    I am binding my tree with the collection.


    Now while adding an item to the tree view I want to set the header and the name of the Item node. 

    Currently I am able to set the header of the item added but when I try to set the name I get an error. 







    new RadTreeViewItem()



    Header = "Harsh",


    //Name = Convert.ToString(12)





    How can I set the name of an item added?

    Hi Harsh,

    I wasn't able to reproduce your issue - setting the name from the code-behind works on my machine. Can you create a small project that is just isolating the issue and send it to me so that I can take a look.

    By the way, why do you need to set the Name property in the code-behind? As you can read on MSDN, "The name provides a reference so that code-behind, such as event handler code, can refer to a markup element after it is constructed during processing by a XAML processor".
