Hi have a treeview with about 20 nodes total (4 deep) on a masterpage. I have the viewstate set to true and expand depth set to 0. But for some reason asp.net is not saving the tree's collapsed state. Every time I click on a link the treeview reset itself to default. How can I fix this?

A possible approach would be to save the text, value or id of the nodes that are expanded and expand them after the treeview is re-bound. You can find the nodes by their text, value or id (FindNodeByText(), FindNodeByValue(), FindNodeById()) and set their Expanded properties to true.

Hope this helps.

In your .asp page add EnableEventValidation="false"  in the @ page directive. Give a try  and find it works

I got this error:
Error parsing attribute 'enableeventvalidation': Type 'System.Web.UI.MasterPage' does not have a public property named 'enableeventvalidation'.

You have to add that to the asp page and not the master page. (You must be using your master page in asp page ?)

I looked at the above url's and the OnTreeNodeDataBound don't work because I am not binding any data to the treeview.

How do you populate Treeview control. Also from where you get data to populate Treeview. Is it used for Menu Navigation?

The treeview is not dynamic. I added them to the treeview in design view. That's why the OnTreeNodeDataBound don't work.

This what i could think about
In TreeNodeCollapsed keep the node value in a session
In reeNodeExpanded Collapse it. But it can go to collapse event agian. So you have to careful in implementing your logic

protected void TreeView1_TreeNodeCollapsed(object sender, TreeNodeEventArgs e)
    {
       add to session here .
    }
    protected void TreeView1_TreeNodeExpanded(object sender, TreeNodeEventArgs e)
    {
        //        if (e.Node.Text == "New Node")
        //{
            // e.Node.Collapse();
        //}
       
    }
}
