    The TreeNode of TreeView in web version has a "Value" property that can be bound from XML files. Our colleagues cannot find the corresponding one in WinForm TreeView.

    Do you suggest any property as a substitute (that can be bound from XML files)?

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi Ricky,

    The Tag property of nodes can be used to serialize additional information in XML.
    For example the code bellow:
    this.radTreeView1.Nodes[0].Tag = 1; 
                this.radTreeView1.Nodes[0].Nodes[0].Tag = "String in tag"
                SaveFileDialog saveFileDialog = new SaveFileDialog(); 
                saveFileDialog.AddExtension = true
                saveFileDialog.DefaultExt = ".xml"
                saveFileDialog.Filter = "XML files (*.xml)|*.xml|All files (*.*)|*.*"
                if (saveFileDialog.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK) 

    Produces the following XML:

    <Nodes Expanded="true" Text="Node1"
    <Nodes Expanded="true" Text="Node7"
      <Nodes Text="Node15" />  
      <Nodes Text="Node16" />  
      <Tag xsi:type="xsd:string">String in tag</Tag>  
    <Nodes Expanded="true" Text="Node8"
      <Nodes Text="Node14" />  
      <Nodes Text="Node9" />  
      <Tag xsi:type="xsd:int">1</Tag>  

    Hope that helps.
