multiple images in treeview

is it possible to add multiple images in a treeview-row with different actions?

as far as I know it is only possible to add only one custom image and even that image.

the idea would be
+ [image] [image] [image] itemname
+ [image] [image] [image] itemname

hope someone can help!
or is there an other tool for the job

ASP.NET or WinForms TreeView?
reinoutkoolAuthor Commented: treeview

the only way I can think of is:
node.txt = "text of node here"
node.txt = node.txt + "<a href='#'><img scr='path-to-img'></a>"
node.txt = node.txt + "<a href='#'><img scr='path-to-img'></a>"
node.txt = node.txt + "<a href='#'><img scr='path-to-img'></a>"

OK, that looks like ASP.NET TreeView.  Did that way work for you?

yes it works. but now the links are normal html links, not postback. isn't there a way to add multiple link buttons to the treeview?
Bob LearnedCommented:
When you create a LinkButton, it renders as a special anchor element, with a call to __doPostBack.

      <a id="LinkButton1" href="javascript:__doPostBack('LinkButton1','')">LinkButton</a>&nbsp;</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
var theForm = document.forms['form1'];
if (!theForm) {
    theForm = document.form1;
function __doPostBack(eventTarget, eventArgument) {
    if (!theForm.onsubmit || (theForm.onsubmit() != false)) {
        theForm.__EVENTTARGET.value = eventTarget;
        theForm.__EVENTARGUMENT.value = eventArgument;
	<input type="hidden" name="__EVENTVALIDATION" id="__EVENTVALIDATION" value="/wEWAgLGrYuuCwLM9PumD+FE4KFENnlaEGuQ4O6N7u//H6Ff" />
      <a id="LinkButton1" href="javascript:__doPostBack('LinkButton1','')">LinkButton</a>&nbsp;</div>

yes, but is it possible to mix strings with an imagebutton?

Dim lnk As New ImageButton()
lnk.ImageUrl = "path here"
lnk.PostBackUrl = "url here"
node.txt = "some string"
node.txt = node.txt + lnk

I would suggest when you have a simple question like "is it possible" to set up a small test web site and web page to test that theory.  That is all I do when I test out your question.

Here is what I would suggest from a small test with a HyperLink:

    <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" Text="Test" ImageUrl="~/im01.jpg" NavigateUrl="~/Default2.aspx" />

That was rendered like this:

   <a id="HyperLink1" href="Default2.aspx"><img src="im01.jpg" alt="Test" style="border-width:0px;" /></a>
You would need to replicate that HTML style in your code, if possible.

yes I'm aware of make a test page, and that's what I do often. the questions was if treeeview was the right tool foor the job and if so, is the solution I suggested the right thing to do. or if there is another, better, solution.
I tried to mix html and hard coded postback links as you suggested and that works fine.
problem solved!
