Which TreeView?

I tried to find a .net treeview [winforms component] for my app, so that it'll work with VS 2003 and be also compatible with .net framework 2005.

Only needed these features:
1. Multi-select (can select multiple sibling nodes)
2. Able to hide nodes selectively (so that some cihldren of a node may be visible while others not)
3. Serializable (can save tree and retrieve later)

It would be ideal if it was written in C#, with source code available.
Thank you for helping.

The one we use at my company is called 'Glacial TreeView' - I think it has everything you would need, by work with vs2003 and 2005 - do you mean you want to write the app in vs2003 and then run it in a .Net 2.0 environment, or write it in VS2003 and open that solution in VS2005?

write in vs2003 and run it on machines with .net frameworks, including those with only framework 2005.

can it hide nodes?

By hide do you mean leave them in the TreeView, but just not visible?

Hi there,

Sorry would have replied earlier, but I've been chasing up whether or not you can set them to visible or not, and whilst they have an 'IsVisible' property, I assume that it relates to whether a node is collapsed into another or not.

I certainly couldn't see a way to set the value of IsVisible to true, as it's a Getter only, and the member behind it is obsfucated unfortunately.

So, unless you want to email the guy who writes the treeview and ask if you can do it (support [a.t.] glacialcomponents.com) I think it may not be the control for you, sorry!

On the plus side, you can ask him if he will do it, and if it's possible he'll tend to add the code in for you...

Sorry again

Wint.

Thanks Wint,

Meanwhile I also found a great .net tree control, named TList. Its makers are called Bennet-Tec.
It has all the features I was looking for, plus much more tree-specific functionality, unlike any other such control from other makers.

The problem is they didn't update their software for quite a long time, and are not really reaponsive by email...
Is this company dying out? Anyone had any experience (positive or negative) with Bennet-Tec TList for .Net?

Hullo,

I've never had experience with Bennet-Tec, I hope it goes ok for you!
