Treeview - setting node font / bold

Hi there,

I am trying to compare a node key in my treeview control (Excel 2010) to a value in a range. If the two values match, then make the node bold.

I am using the following piece of code:

Private Sub Highlight_Tree(ByVal highlight_node As Object)
' Parentnode previously declared as node - had to change to avoid type mismatch error.
Dim row As Range
Dim rngcomments As Range
Dim wkscomments As Worksheet
Dim n As Object
Set wkscomments = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Comments")
Set rngcomments = wkscomments.Range("Comments")

        Do Until highlight_node Is Nothing
            For Each row In rngcomments.Rows
                Debug.Print row.Columns(1).Value, highlight_node.Key
                If row.Columns(1).Value = highlight_node.Key Then
                    With highlight_node.Font
                        .Bold = True
                    End With
                    Exit For
                End If
            Next row
            
            Highlight_Tree highlight_node.Child
            Set highlight_node = highlight_node.Next
        Loop
End Sub

Open in new window


I works all the way up to setting the With highlight_node.Font property, when I get the error:
Object doesn't support this property or method.

Can anyone give me a push on this one ?

Thanks and regards,

Craig.

Nodes do not have a Font property. They do however have a Bold property... ;)

Hi rorys,

Well I changed my code but I'm still getting the same error.

Do Until highlight_node Is Nothing
            For Each row In rngcomments.Rows
                Debug.Print row.Columns(1).Value, highlight_node.Key
                If row.Columns(1).Value = highlight_node.Key Then
                    highlight_node.Bold = True
                    Exit For
                End If
            Next row
            Highlight_Tree highlight_node.Child
            Set highlight_node = highlight_node.Next
        Loop

Open in new window


The line "highlight_node.Bold = True" is where the error is occurring...

Any thoughts ? I don't understand when to use with... for each.... etc with regards to properties and methods.

Cheers,

Craig

Seeing no response from asker and not for points just to clarify, rorya meant for you to
replace this
With highlight_node.Font
     .Bold = True
End With

by this
With highlight_node
     .Bold = True
End With

Just noticed that we posted at the same time did not see your post first.

I suggest you simply remove from your original code the .Font and give it a try.

Ok - tried that but still the same error.

I am passing the treeview.nodes(1) parameter to the highlight_node procedure .

Would there be an issue here with passing NODES to a procedure and then trying to change the NODE.bold property ?

Rory ArchibaldCommented:
No - it works fine for me. Is there a reason why you are passing the node As Object rather than As Node?

Yes - setting

(highlight_node as node)

gives a "type mismatch" error when passing treeview.nodes(1) to the procedure.

setting it to object eliminated the error. But I can't get this to work at all. I have attached a copy of the entire spreadsheet. Maybe I am missing a reference ? This is driving me crazy.

Can you replace your Treeview control version 5 with version 6? I don't have version 5, which is what you appear to be using, so the treeview simply gets removed. This may be part of the problem, since you also have a reference to version 6 of the common controls.

When I do that, the code works - see attached version.

Thank you rorys.

I thought  - I really thought I had a version 6 treeview control. And I never thought to look at that.

This is a great relief.

Cheers,
