Hello,

I'm having a little trouble populating a DevExpress treelist (in vb.net 2005) that I created via code.  I can add it through the form design manually and it works fine.

However when I add it through code, it has no columns and no rows.  Likewise, the IsUnBoundMode shows True.  However, you can see that I assign a datasource.  This same datasource works fine when I add the treelist manually in form design.  So what am I doing wrong or what am I missing?

Please help.

Here is my code:

    Dim treelist2 As TreeList = New TreeList

            treelist2.Name = "TreeList2"
            treelist2.Dock = DockStyle.Fill
            treelist2.OptionsBehavior.PopulateServiceColumns = True
            treelist2.ParentFieldName = "fldcParentId"
            treelist2.KeyFieldName = "fldKeyId"
            treelist2.DataSource = dttHierDtl
            treelist2.SelectImageList = imgSmallIcon
            treelist2.StateImageList = imgSmallIcon

            treelist2.CustomizationFormBounds = TreeList1.CustomizationFormBounds
            treelist2.ImageIndexFieldName = "fldIconOpn"
            treelist2.PopulateColumns()
            treelist2.Visible = True

I figured it out.  There is one additional line of code (required to be the first row):

Me.Controls.Add(treelist4)
            treelist4.Name = "treelist4"
            treelist4.ParentFieldName = "fldcParentId"
            treelist4.KeyFieldName = "fldKeyId"
            treelist4.DataSource = dttHierDtl1
            treelist4.PopulateColumns()
            treelist4.Columns("fldTag").VisibleIndex = -1
            treelist4.Columns("fldKeyNm").OptionsColumn.AllowEdit = False
            treelist4.Columns("fldKeyNm").OptionsColumn.AllowFocus = False
            treelist4.OptionsSelection.EnableAppearanceFocusedCell = False
            treelist4.OptionsSelection.EnableAppearanceFocusedRow = False
