I build a treeviews parent and 1st child nodes from a sitemap. so it looks like this:

- Cars
    - Ford
    - Nissan
 
Now I hit the database and generate a datatable, dt("Ford Models"). How do I bind the datatable to the "ford" child node so it looks like this?
- Cars
     - Ford
           - Taurus
           - Mustang
           - Fusion
Thanks!

Right now, I am just trying it like this, but when the page is finished loading it doesnt display the node as populated.
    Private Sub Page1_Unload(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Page1.Unload
        Dim dt As DataTable = popRootNodes()
        Dim parentNode As TreeNode = Nothing
        Dim currNode As TreeNode = Nothing
        Dim newNode As TreeNode = Nothing
 
        parentNode = Me.TreeView1.Nodes.Item(0)
        currNode = parentNode.ChildNodes.Item(0)
 
        newNode = New TreeNode("Taurus", "Taurus")
        currNode.ChildNodes.Add(newNode)
 
        newNode = New TreeNode("Mustang", "Mustang")
        currNode.ChildNodes.Add(newNode)
 
        newNode = New TreeNode("Fusion", "Fusion")
        currNode.ChildNodes.Add(newNode)
 
        currNode.Expanded = True
    End Sub

Is this ASP.Net?  Web TreeView has no Item collection...

If you are looking for a more complete answer, post more complete code.  BTW, why are you doing this in the Page Unload Event?

There is no PopulateOnDemand property/method for the Web TreeView.  Would not make sense in the PostBack (stateless) environment of the web.
