Single node in a TreeView without a checkbox

Hi Experts

I have a TreeView control with two main nodes (Parent1 and Parent2), each of which has children, they have children, etc. I have enabled the checkboxes for the TreeView and everything is fine. The only little problem is, that the Parent1 and Parent2 nodes are actually just grouping and the logic is that they cannot be selected. Is it possible that only those two nodes have NO checkboxes, whilst all others have?

Thanks

I've done this in the past, but it's not a very tidy solution.. and I'm sure you've thought of this already.

What you can do is not have checkboxes, but apply an image to each treenode, one of those images would be a square with a cross in it, the other just a square, and the other nothing.. Then, when you click an item, toggle it's checked property and change to the relevant image.

Hmm, does not seem like the perfect solution. Still 10x for the suggestion.

Have you come accross any custom TreeView control, that is reacher than the one from MS?

TheAvenger,

Might want to take a look at http://www.codeproject.com/cs/miscctrl/treelistview.asp?df=100&forumid=13572&exp=0&select=756432

It is a custom TreeView control, from which I know it for example supports custom checkboxes, and I believe you can disable checking a checkbox... so I hope it comes close to what you want.

HTH,

Razzie

You may be able to add a node which is a treenode
TreeNodepollNode =
     new TreeNode("Survey");
