Why can't I find the node

I have a need to change the navigate URL of a treenode depending on the user group.  Here is the code I am using to find the node.

Dim myNode As New TreeNode
Dim myTest As String = "Carpet/Vinyl Install Dates"
myNode = TreeView1.FindNode(Server.HtmlEncode(mytest))
myNode.NavigateUrl = "~/Inspections/frmInstallDates2.aspx"

Open in new window


When I look at the locals  I can see this.


treeview1.Nodes(6).ValuePath      "Carpet/Vinyl Install Dates"      String

Yet the code above does not find the node.  Any ideas.

thanks

Have you tried without the Server.HtmlEncode call?

Isn't that what I am doing in the code I sent?

myNode = TreeView1.FindNode(Server.HtmlEncode(mytest))


If it helps this code is on a master page

I am asking if you have removed that bit, and tried it simply as:

myNode = TreeView1.FindNode(mytest)

this is what I ended up doing and this works.

 If mWaterford = True Then
                For Each myNode In TreeView1.Nodes
                    If myNode.ValuePath = "Carpet/Vinyl Install Dates" Then
                        myNode.NavigateUrl = "~/Inspections/frmInstallDates2.aspx"
                    Else
                    End If
                Next
            Else
                For Each myNode In TreeView1.Nodes
                    If myNode.ValuePath = "Carpet/Vinyl Install Dates" Then
                        myNode.NavigateUrl = "~/Inspections/frmInstallDates.aspx"
                    Else

                    End If
                Next
            End If

I know you have got it working now but when you were trying to use FindNode, was PathSeparator property of the treeview set to "/"?
