Is it possible to search treeview nodes using text and expand node that matches search?


I have built a document management system that is interfaced into Access using treeview. It works fine but when I add files to the system I want to refresh the treeview and expand the node to which the files were added to display the added files.

Is it possible to search treeview nodes using text and expand node that matches search?

You could use something like this
 For Each nodNode In tv.Nodes
                If nodNode.Text= YOURCriteria Then
                    nodNode.Expanded = True
                End If
            Next nodNode

You probably should add Exit For after line 3 to save a very small bit of processing time.

It is certainly possible, but I prefer to search the table that the tree is based upon to get the PK associated with whatever I'm searching for.

Then use the PK to construct the key that is used for that node and then select the node based upon the key.
