I am filling a TreeView using the code below, how do I set the value property for each of the two add new node lines? Just having trouble with syntax.
' Add a root TreeNode for each Company object in the ArrayList.
Dim company2 As Company
For Each company2 In companyArray

   tvwPreAlert.Nodes.Add(New TreeNode(company2.CompanyLedgerType + " ~ " + company2.CompanyName))
      
' Add a child TreeNode for each PreAlert object in the current Company object.

Dim prealert1 As PreAlertNumber
   For Each prealert1 In company2.CompanyPreAlerts

   tvwPreAlert.Nodes(companyArray.IndexOf(company2)).Nodes.Add( New TreeNode(prealert1.PreAlertID))

   Next prealert1
Next company2

Open in new window

best way is to add a Node variable
like so (not tested
Dim xNode as Node
xNode =  tvwPreAlert.Nodes.Add(New TreeNode(company2.CompanyLedgerType + " ~ " + company2.CompanyName))
xNode.Value = "your value"

Infact you can do away with the (New TreeNode) statement prefix

Thanks for the help.

I have the following, however the Value property is not available, whereas Text is.

I may have to include record ID's as part of the text and parse it out for use, a bit like I had to do in MS Access VBA activeX treeview control.

Dim company2 As Company
Dim tvwNode As TreeNode
For Each company2 In companyArray

tvwNode = tvwPreAlert.Nodes.Add(company2.CompanyLedgerType + " ~ " + company2.CompanyName)

You may also wish to look at the .name property as well as the .tag property

Just the job I can give these node properties a value, I should be able to get to them fairly easily later on.
