How do I dynamically pouplate a treeview in 2.0 (visual studio 2005) from a sql 2000 stored procedure?
Number of child nodes changes.The database structUre is as below

ContenId ParentContentID Name
1             0                          Main
2             1                          Home
3              1                          News
This is to populate a treeview to get all the pages/menu in CMS and for users to allow add/edit pages and add new pages under existing pages as displayed in the Treeview.
Working on a deadline - so any help is appreciated.
Awaiting responsE
Thanks a Ton.

I have attached some code that I used to do something very similar.  Basically you establish a root node then you just recursively add children referencing the ParentID.

Hope this helps

	Private Sub FillTaskTree()

		Dim tn As TreeNode

		Dim i As Integer

		Dim dv As New DataView(dsUserAdmin.Tables("Task"))


		dv.RowFilter = "ParentTaskID IS NULL"

		dv.Sort = "DisplayOrder"

		For i = 0 To dv.Count - 1

			tn = tvTasks.Nodes.Add(dv(i)("Name").ToString)

			tn.Tag = dv(i)("TaskID")

			tn.ImageIndex = TaskIcon.ClosedContainer

			tn.SelectedImageIndex = TaskIcon.ClosedContainer




	End Sub

	Private Sub FillTaskChildNodes(ByVal tnParent As TreeNode)

		Dim tnChild As TreeNode

		Dim i As Integer

		Dim dv As New DataView(dsUserAdmin.Tables("Task"))

		Dim strfilter As String = "ParentTaskID = " + tnParent.Tag.ToString + _

		 " AND TaskTypeID <> " + CInt(TaskType.Action).ToString

		dv.RowFilter = strfilter

		dv.Sort = "DisplayOrder"

		For i = 0 To dv.Count - 1

			tnChild = tnParent.Nodes.Add(dv(i)("Name").ToString)

			tnChild.Tag = dv(i)("TaskID")

			Select Case CInt(dv(i)("TaskTypeID"))

				Case TaskType.Container

					tnChild.ImageIndex = TaskIcon.ClosedContainer

					tnChild.SelectedImageIndex = TaskIcon.ClosedContainer

				Case TaskType.Tool

					tnChild.ImageIndex = TaskIcon.Tool

					tnChild.SelectedImageIndex = TaskIcon.Tool

				Case TaskType.Report

					tnChild.ImageIndex = TaskIcon.Report

					tnChild.SelectedImageIndex = TaskIcon.Report

			End Select




	End Sub

Actually the code is fairly old and was written in VS2003 so I expect I was using .Net 1.1 but as long as you found something that works for you.
