Building Dynamic Treeview 3 levels. C#

I have this sturcture in SQL SERVER 2005.

Table Name- Categories.
CatID       LangID    EngID      OwnerID   SubOwnerID      categoryName        Show      OrderBy       PopRating
1      ENG      1      0      NULL                Automobile               False         1                   null
2      ENG      2      0      NULL                Beauty               False         2                   null
3      ENG      NULL      2      NULL                Spa               False         1                   null
4      ENG      NULL      NULL      3                Facials               False         1                   null

I want the tree to look like ->
 - Automobile
 - Beauty
       -Spa
            -Facials


The problem is that I want the tree view to be built from a dataset or datareader...or whatever that is fast...there will be about 300 categories. and I don't want to have 300 database calls to build the table...

I thought about a stored procedure...but I don't really know how I would go about to implement that....Also I thought about maybe a 3 level nested loop....but that would involved making a database call every time...(Which is obviously not a good idea) I also thought about the nested loop but instead of many database calls...I can make one database call. get all the categories...then store it in a dataset or datareader ( I think datareader would be faster, not sure if I can have realtionships in a datareader though....) and then read it and populate my Tree view..


This is what I have so far... Stored procedure under it....which is really not that advanced...

Any help would be great..

Many thanks.

        SqlDataReader reader = dbobj.runStoredProc("usp_GetCategories", new string[,] { { "@langID", Session["lang"].ToString() } });
        if(reader.HasRows){
            while (reader.Read()) {
                TreeNode grandParentNode = new TreeNode(reader["CategoryName"].ToString(), reader["CategoryID"].ToString());
            
            }
        }
        reader.Close();
        dbobj.closeDB();
 
       /* foreach (string[] element in alCats) {
            //for (int i = 0; i < element.Length; i++) {
            TreeNode grandParentNode = new TreeNode(element[0]);
            tvPreview.Nodes.Add(grandParentNode);
            for (int i = 1; i < element.Length; i++) {
                TreeNode parentNode = new TreeNode(element[i]);
                grandParentNode.ChildNodes.Add(parentNode);

            }
            //    }
 
        }
 
        */
    }
 
 
 
And the stored procedure....

	@langID char(3)
AS
	SELECT * FROM categories where LanguageID=@langID;

You can try this:

1)  Drop OwnerId and SubOwnerId , Create a column called ParentCategoryId, Now the table could support more than 3 level of hierarchy.
2) Here is a sample query to retrieve the data in tree view order
------------------------------------------------------------------------
with result(catid,categoryname,level,orderby)
as
(
    select catid,categoryname,3,row_number() over (order by catid) * Power(10,3 * 2)
    from categories
    where parentid = 0
      union all
    select c.catid,c.categoryname,r.level - 1,r.orderby + row_number() over (order by c.catid) * Power(10,(level - 1) * 2)
    from categories c inner join result r on c.parentid = r.catid
)
select * from result order by orderby
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The query is hard coded to support 3 level in
select catid,categoryname,3,row_number() over (order by catid) * Power(10,3 * 2) (you can change the number if you want)
The query is hard coded to support every category can only have 99 immediate subcategories.
Power(10,(level - 1) * 2)  (if you can the 2 to 3 then it could support 999)
The max for t-sql is Power(10,9), so it's not support many levels. If you want to support more levels, use a varchar type for ordering.

Now you have the result something like
1      Automobile      3      1000000
2      Beauty      3      2000000
3      Spa      2      2010000
4      Facials      1      2010100

3) In your code
Add a Stack to track tree nodes and go through the result set one line by one line to build the tree. (Push a node to Stack when level goes smaller, Pop when it goes bigger)

Hope it's enough information for you

that sounds really good... So the structure would be??

Right now:

CatID       LangID    EngID      OwnerID   SubOwnerID      categoryName        Show      OrderBy       PopRating
1                ENG      1                    0               NULL                Automobile           False         1                   null
2                ENG      2                    0               NULL                Beauty                  False         2                   null
3                ENG      NULL              2               NULL                Spa                       False         1                   null
4                ENG      NULL            NULL              3                   Facials                   False         1                   null

Proposed:

CatID       LangID    EngID     ParentCategoryId      categoryName        Show      OrderBy       PopRating
1                ENG      1                       ???                     Automobile            False           1                   null
2                ENG      2                       ???                     Beauty                  False           2                   null
3                ENG      NULL                 ???                     Spa                       False           1                   null
4                ENG      NULL                 ???                     Facials                   False          1                   null


I will only ever need 3 levels..

Main category
    sub category
      sub sub category



>>3) In your code
>>Add a Stack to track tree nodes and go through the result set one line by one line to build the tree. (Push a >>node to Stack when level goes smaller, Pop when it goes bigger)

Do you have an example on how to I can do this? I'm not very familiar with pop and push...or even stack for that matter????


Also I need it to be very fast as it is for a web application. that's not going to be a problem is it?

thanks,
Ghost

You can put
0
0
2
3
in parent id for category 1 to 4

OK, I have a page with only a treeview called TreeView1, the following code will populate the treeview

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (!IsPostBack)
        {
            Dictionary<string, int> values = new Dictionary<string, int>();

            values.Add("Automobile", 3);
            values.Add("Beauty", 3);
            values.Add("Spa", 2);
            values.Add("Facials", 1);

            Stack<TreeNodeCollection> s = new Stack<TreeNodeCollection>();
            s.Push(TreeView1.Nodes);
            TreeNode lastNode = null;
            TreeNode currentNode;
            int currentLevel = 3;
            foreach (KeyValuePair<string, int> value in values)
            {
                currentNode = new TreeNode(value.Key);
                if (currentLevel > value.Value) //Move down
                {
                    s.Push(lastNode.ChildNodes);
                }
                else if (currentLevel < value.Value)//Move up
                {
                    s.Pop();
                }
                s.Peek().Add(currentNode);
                currentLevel = value.Value;
                lastNode = currentNode;
            }
        }
    }

your example worked..now I need to link it to my table in the database...another thing you might not of noticed..but the table is language independant...if I would want the category names in french for instance...would I just add... where langaugeID='Fre' at the end of your select?

Also wondering what is the purpose of the ParentCategoryId field.

and what does it's contents mean? since I'm going to be filling the database from a form I need to know how to properly insert the data.

thanks.

The query I put here is just for example.
You have to modify it according to your needs.
It does not select all columns and the orderby column does not need to be selected.
ParentCategoryId is the CatId of the row which is the parent of current row.
Use one parent idcolumn just to simplify the query. Your table structure could also be used as long as you can come up a query which returns the result in the right order.

What would the sql statement be if instead of ordering by the orderby field I just wanted to order them alphabetically?

This is what I have so far...

it's giving me an index out of bounds on the "ParentCategoyID" field...
Dictionary<string, int> values = new Dictionary<string, int>();
 
        SqlDataReader reader = beeDBobj.runStoredProc("usp_GetCategories", new string[,] { { "@langID", Session["lang"].ToString() } });
        while (reader.Read()) {
            values.Add(reader["CategoryName"].ToString(), Int32.Parse(reader["ParentCategoyID"].ToString()));
        }
        
        Stack<TreeNodeCollection> s = new Stack<TreeNodeCollection>();
        s.Push(CatTree.Nodes);
        TreeNode lastNode = null;
        TreeNode currentNode;
        int currentLevel = 3;
        foreach (KeyValuePair<string, int> value in values) {
            currentNode = new TreeNode(value.Key);
            if (currentLevel > value.Value) //Move down
                {
                s.Push(lastNode.ChildNodes);
            }
            else if (currentLevel < value.Value)//Move up
                {
                s.Pop();
            }
            s.Peek().Add(currentNode);
            currentLevel = value.Value;
            lastNode = currentNode;
        }
 
 
this is the procedure...
 
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[usp_GetCategories]
	@langID char(3)
AS
	with result(CategoryID,CategoryName,level,OrderBy)
as
(
    select CategoryID,CategoryName,3,row_number() over (order by CategoryID) * Power(10,3 * 2)
    from Categories
    where ParentCategoyID = 0
      union all
    select c.CategoryID,c.CategoryName,r.level - 1,r.OrderBy + row_number() over (order by c.CategoryID) * Power(10,(level - 1) * 2)
    from Categories c inner join result r on c.ParentCategoyID = r.CategoryID where LanguageID=@langID
)
select * from result order by OrderBy
 
 
THIS IS THE TABLE:
CategoryID  LanguageID    EnglishID     ParentCategoyID  CategoryName  Show   OrderBy   PopRating
2	     ENG	          1	    0	            Automobile   False   NULL	NULL
 
 
I would also like to know how to take out the Orderby and use the select to order it alphbetically.
 
 
THANKS

1) You don't need the generic dictionary in the code. You can loop through the data reader.
2) Unless you set the order statically in the table, you have to have the orderby column to get the right result.
The following might work for you:
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[usp_GetCategories]
      @langID char(3)
AS
      with result(CategoryID,CategoryName,level,OrderBy)
as
(
    select CategoryID,CategoryName,3,row_number() over (order by CategoryName ) * Power(10,3 * 2)
    from Categories
    where ParentCategoyID = 0 and LanguageID=@langID
      union all
    select c.CategoryID,c.CategoryName,r.level - 1,r.OrderBy + row_number() over (order by c.CategoryName) * Power(10,(level - 1) * 2)
    from Categories c inner join result r on c.ParentCategoyID = r.CategoryID where LanguageID=@langID
)
select CategoryName,level from result order by OrderBy

values.Add(reader["CategoryName"].ToString(), Int32.Parse(reader["ParentCategoyID"].ToString()));

should be

values.Add(reader["CategoryName"].ToString(), Int32.Parse(reader["level"].ToString()));


The result has order by the name of the category through "row_number() over (order by CategoryName )"
