How to create a TreePath from a string and expand the Tree

Hi,
I have a string like "switch 0 , Blade 1"
where switch 0 is parent , blade1 is child and so on.

This string is generated dynamically but it represents
a valid treepath.

I want to expand the tree to show this particular
treepath.I am not able to create a valid TreePath
from this string.

I did something like this:

1) tokenize the string
2) make an object array of the tokens.
3) Treepath tp = new TreePath(object array);
4) Tree.expandpath(Treepath)

I get a "ClassCastException":java.lang.string

any suggestions?

I think you have to search the TreeNodes by name and then create
the treepath with these treenodes.

superschlonz is correct.
You need to create your tree path from an array of tree nodes.
