Collapse all Open Nodes Of an ASP.NET TreeView when Another Node is expanded

Users have a very common requirement around the ASP.NET TreeView - that is to keep only one TreeNode expanded at a given point of time. So if a TreeNode in the TreeView is expanded, collapse the other open TreeNodes. Here's how to do so:


 <asp:TreeView ID="TreeView1" runat="server"


        ontreenodeexpanded="TreeView1_TreeNodeExpanded">


        <Nodes>


            <asp:TreeNode Text="Node1" Value="Node1">


                <asp:TreeNode Text="Node1.1" Value="Node1.1"/>


                <asp:TreeNode Text="Node1.2" Value="Node1.2"/>


                <asp:TreeNode Text="Node1.3" Value="Node1.3"/>


            </asp:TreeNode>


            <asp:TreeNode Text="Node2" Value="Node2">


                <asp:TreeNode Text="Node1.1" Value="Node2.1"/>


                <asp:TreeNode Text="Node1.2" Value="Node2.2"/>


            </asp:TreeNode>


            <asp:TreeNode Text="Node3" Value="Node3">


                <asp:TreeNode Text="Node3.1" Value="Node3.1"/>


                <asp:TreeNode Text="Node3.2" Value="Node3.2"/>


            </asp:TreeNode>


        </Nodes>


</asp:TreeView>




C#


protected void TreeView1_TreeNodeExpanded(object sender, TreeNodeEventArgs e)


{


    // Loop through all nodes


    foreach (TreeNode treenode in TreeView1.Nodes)


    {


        // If node is expanded


        if (treenode != e.Node)


        {


            // Collapse all other nodes


            treenode.Collapse();    


        }


    }


}




VB.NET


    Protected Sub TreeView1_TreeNodeExpanded(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As TreeNodeEventArgs)


        ' Loop through all nodes


        For Each treenode As TreeNode In TreeView1.Nodes


            ' If node is expanded


            If treenode IsNot e.Node Then


                ' Collapse all other nodes


                treenode.Collapse()


            End If


        Next treenode


    End Sub
