Treeview with recursive checkboxes?

HI, I am looking for a treeviewcomponent where you can enable checkboxes and they act recursive. I mean when you check the parent all the childnodes get checked as wel and visa versa. Anyone formiliar whit such a component?

You could use this one: http://www.lischke-online.de/TreeNT.html

It doesn't do the resursive action, but it is easy enough to do.

Cheers,

Raymond.

Well, Ray is right in that my TreeNT supports checkboxes, but is wrong about the recursive behaviour. Setting the check kind to tri-state causes dependent nodes (children or parents or both, whatever applies) to track check state changes of a node.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hello Mike,

I've added the following in the onchecked event and it works just fine.

procedure TForm1.TreeNT1Checked(Sender: TObject; Node: TTreeNTNode);
var t : integer;
begin
  if node.HasChildren then
   begin
    for t := 0 to Node.Count-1 do
     begin
       Node.Item[t].CheckState := csChecked;
     end;
   end;
end;

So my problem is solved.
Since it is your component i'd like to give you the credits.
Thanks alot,
Pascal

Mike - I'm sure TTreeNT won't do this recursive behaviour itself, will it? (ie: You need to right the handler above as I suggested...)

Cheers,

Well, the check concept is admittedly difficult to understand but it is as I said. When a node's check kind is tri-state (ctCheckboxGrayed), then changes to it are propagated down to all its children and up to its parent. Both ways are recursive. See also CheckParentCheckState for up-propagation and line 2122 ff. (method TTreeNTNode.SetCheckState) in TreeNT.pas (version 3.1 from Nov last year) for down propagation.

Ciao, Mike

Hi Mike,

Yes, I had a poke around in the source before I posted the comment. I saw what you mean about the tri-state behaviour...

Anyway, enough of this! TTreeNT rules OK! ;-)

Cheers,

Raymond.
