I'm looking for a treeview component that is:

a) easy to use (I'm a relative newbie with ASP/VB.NET)
b) integrates/works with: Visual Studio .NET, ASP.NET 1.1, VB.NET & SQL and
c) is reasonably cheap! preferably free :)

Can anyone recommend from experience ?

That is strange it should be in there you are sure there is no treeview it should be between listview and tabcontrol

But most of them have a free trial, just try them and see which one you like. It shouldn't be much work to set up simple tree.

And easy of use is always in the eye of the beholder.

Can you define 'prettty good' ? e.g. does it integrate with Visual Studio well ? (deg rag n drop & properties window) Is it easy to fill from a multi table dataset ? Are there any performance issues ? What happens if there are more than 20 nodes ? etc

Ok, Obout,
It is a standard component (dll) which you can load into the toolbox (drag and drop, property window)
you can not load more than 20 nodes in the free version if you want more you have to purchase.
Very good help and samples (loads of them).
I haven't tried filling from a multitable dataset, but I don't think that should be any problem.

Most of your questions will be answers if you look here

I personally like
r.a.d.treeview
but if you need for SQL Server and XML binding
this would suit you

One of the best add-ons to VB.Net, I have used it very every program that I made. It has your treeview components, the only problem is that this software is not free.

Ooops sorry to have been so long in answering this one ... I am actually still interested but having looked at several of the ones recommended I decided to write my own for the particular use I had in mind. I may still get one of the others if I find I need more complicated functionality.

The links provided by RonaldBiemans (http://www.411asp.net/home/assembly/navigator/treeview) and Armoghan (http://www.asp.net/ControlGallery/default.aspx?Category=28&tabindex=2) were both very useful.

I would back up KGreg and Armoghan ...

- Infragistics does look very good, but it's beyond my budget!
- I discounted obout 'cos I was concerned about the 20 node limitation.
- Tree View for ASP.NET looked like a good option but I found it difficult to get it to work properly and when I uninstalled it again it left some sort of tail behind that caused VS to throw up an error every time I ran the site in debug mode.

This is as far as I got, but if/when I revew again R.A.D. will be my next choice - unless of course ASP.NET 2 comes along before then!

Many thanks to all of you who replied :)
