Adding to the Treeview

I'm writing a vb.net application that will use the treeview control to display info to the users.  It works to add a node to the first level nodes, but when trying to add a node to the second level nodes, it adds a node but it has no information assigned to it.  The way I add a node to the tree is I create a tree node, then assign information to it, then add it to the tree.  I've displayed a message box with information about the treenode and all information is there before its added.  My code basically works this way below:

Get info for node0

Treeview.nodes.add(node0)

Get info for node1

Treeview.nodes(node0).nodes.add(node1)

Get info for node2

Treeview.nodes(node0).nodes(node1).nodes.add(node2)

Node2 doesn't get added correctly. All information is correct in Node2 and something does get added to the tree but with no information.  Has anyone had this problem before?  Thanks for any help.

have you tried to keep a reference to the node you just added:

mynode0 = Treeview.nodes.add(node0)
mynode1 = mynode0.nodes.add(node1)
mynode1.nodes.add(node2)

Hello, rcblevins,

I'm not sure what you mean by "information", but as far as I know Nodes requires an integer index, so an expression like:

    Treeview.nodes(node0).nodes.add(node1)

should cause an error.  If you can show the actual code that you are using to populate the TreeView we may be able to provide more help.

Cheers,
Randy

Here is the code.  The problem is where node2 is being used.  The stn node has information in it when its added to the tree, but the tree shows that a blank node is added.  The other wierd thing is that I also tried to show the name of the node refereced by node1 which should be node2's parent and it's name comes back empty.  Thanks for your help.

Dim node0 As Integer
        Dim node1 As Integer
        Dim node2 As Integer
        Dim node3 As Integer
        Dim node4 As Integer


        TreeView.Nodes.Clear()

        TreeView.BeginUpdate()

              Dim mddr As SqlDataReader

            mddr = Get Data

            If (mddr.HasRows) Then

                While (mddr.Read())


                    Dim mdtn As New TreeNode


                    mdtn.Tag = mddr.GetInt32(0)
                    mdtn.Text = mddr.GetString(1)
                    mdtn.ToolTipText = mddr.GetInt32(0).ToString

                    node0 = TreeView.Nodes.Add(mdtn)

                    Dim cdr = Get Data

                    If (cdr.HasRows) Then

                        While cdr.Read()

                            Dim ctn As New TreeNode

                            ctn.Tag = cdr.GetInt32(0)
                            ctn.Text = cdr.GetString(1)
                            ctn.ToolTipText = cdr.GetInt32(0).ToString


                            node1 = TreeView.Nodes(node0).Nodes.Add(ctn)


                                Dim sdr = Get Data

                                If (sdr.HasRows) Then

                                    While sdr.Read()

                                        Dim stn As New TreeNode

                                        stn.Tag = sdr.GetString(0)
                                        stn.Name = sdr.GetString(1)


                                        node2 = TreeView.Nodes(node0).Nodes(node1).Nodes.Add(stn)

                                   End While

                                End If

                                sdr.Close()

                            End If

                        End While

                    End If

                    cdr.Close()

                End While


            End If

            mddr.Close()


        End If

        TreeView.EndUpdate()

>>node1 = TreeView.Nodes(node0).Nodes.Add(ctn)

node1 cannot be an integer. you have mixed your variables. see how I fill a treeview at http://www.emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2006/04/The-Treeview-control.aspx

Hello, rcblevins,

I think that you just are missing a line that reads:

    stn.Text = ...

Cheers,
Randy

Lol!  I had looked and looked over that code.  I was thinking in the back of my mind that is was something simple.  I just needed someone else to see it I guess.  Thanks for the help.
