I'm trying to compile my project with the new TcxTreeList but I'm getting this error:
Undeclared identifier: 'Nodes'

About 20 of them, originating from lines such as:
ListGroup.Nodes.Clear;
ListGroup.Nodes.Items[2].AddChild;
etc, etc.. list goes on

Keep in mind that ListGroup = TcxTreeList


Anybody know what became of 'NODES'?

Thanks

Hi again jimy! Upon compiling I'm still getting an error,
for i := 0 to tree.Nodes.Count - 1 do
Changed to
for i := 0 to tree.AbsoluteItems.Count - 1 do
Getting
uXXXX.pas(98): '[' expected but '.' found

Any idea? Thanks

Also for this line:
for i := 0 to tree.AbsoluteItems.Count - 1 do

uXXXX.pas(951): '[' expected but '.' found

Sorry, I meant this line:
ListGroup.AbsoluteItems.Clear;

'[' expected but '.' found

No sir, you have to use the Items property

eg

ListGroup.Items.Clear;
ListGroup.Items[2].AddChild;

ListGroup is a Tree ?
a odd naming convention ...

use AddNode

var item: TcxTreeListNode;
begin
  item := TcxTreeListNode.Create(cxTreeList1);
  item.Texts[0] := 'First column';
  item.Texts[1] := 'Second column';
  cxTreeList1.AddNode(item, nil, nil, tlamAdd);

Actually, none of the above satisfies 100% of the problem, as on the following screenshot shows that there is no 'clear' property in there.

Correct, just call clear directly from the tree object

ListGroup.Clear;

you are probably looking for

ListGroup.Root.Items[n]

Confirming my post "TcxTreeList.Nodes has been updated to TcxTreeList.AbsoluteItems"
It is not just a word-to-word replacement, you have to use the appropriate "Absolute" property:

Your loop will be:
for i := 0 to tree.AbsoluteCount - 1 do

And for AbsoluteItems you have to provide an index (integer value):
AbsoluteItems[index].xxxx;
