TreeView - Only Some Checkboxes


P

Phil Jones

The the [TreeView] I'm wondering if there is a way to set certain nodes with
a check-box, and leave other without one.

I can't see a way to do this. Setting "Checkboxes" to True seems to be all
or nothing....and I can't see a property on the TreeNode object (which seems
like the place this option should be).

Thank everyone!!

Hi Phil,

Based on my understanding, you want to exclude some checkboxes from several
treenodes in treeview.

Currently, there is not build-in support to get this done. But we can send
a TVM_SETITEM message to the treeview control, set TVITEM structure's state
field to 0, and TVITEM's hItem field to the treenode's handle. Then this
treenode will be got rid of the checkbox.

Sample code lists below:

public const int TVIF_STATE = 0x8;
public const int TVIS_STATEIMAGEMASK = 0xF000;
public const int TV_FIRST= 0x1100;
public const int TVM_SETITEM = TV_FIRST + 63;

public struct TVITEM
{
public int mask;
public IntPtr hItem;
public int state;
public int stateMask;
[MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.LPTStr)]
public String lpszText;
public int cchTextMax;
public int iImage;
public int iSelectedImage;
public int cChildren;
public IntPtr lParam;
}

[DllImport("user32.dll")]
static extern IntPtr SendMessage(IntPtr hWnd, uint Msg, IntPtr wParam,
IntPtr lParam);

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
TVITEM tvi=new TVITEM();
tvi.hItem=this.treeView1.SelectedNode.Handle;
tvi.mask=TVIF_STATE;
tvi.stateMask = TVIS_STATEIMAGEMASK;
tvi.state=0;
IntPtr lparam=Marshal.AllocHGlobal(Marshal.SizeOf(tvi));
Marshal.StructureToPtr(tvi, lparam, false);
SendMessage(this.treeView1.Handle, TVM_SETITEM, IntPtr.Zero, lparam);
}
This code hides the selected treenode's checkbox and it works well on my
side. You may copy and paste in your project to have a test.

Brilliant Jeffrey,

Just got one little question. I've been converting your code to VB.NET, and
I'm getting a compilation error complaining that the TVM_SETITEM constant
cannot be converted to an unsigned integer.

In your code there was a note: "'ToDo: Unsigned Integers not supported"

Not sure what to do here. I haven't dont anything with unsigned Ints
before. Can I do a conversion somehow, and if so - where and how.

Many thanks for your efforts Jeffrey!

Cool - thanks Claes. I see that is a VB version of the code Jeffrey
supplied - which is good for me.

Jeffrey, please ignore my dopy queston about unsigned Ints :)

Cheers!

Hello, Jeffrey, I'm trying to reuse your code and I've modified it a little. Everything goes without error, but the result is that nothing happens. Here are my changes:

class TreeViewExtensions
{
public const int TVIF_STATE = 0x8;
public const int TVIS_STATEIMAGEMASK = 0xF000;
public const int TV_FIRST = 0x1100;
public const int TVM_SETITEM = TV_FIRST + 63;

public struct TVITEM
{
public int mask;
public IntPtr hItem;
public int state;
public int stateMask;
[MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.LPTStr)]
public String lpszText;
public int cchTextMax;
public int iImage;
public int iSelectedImage;
public int cChildren;
public IntPtr lParam;
}

[DllImport("user32.dll")]
static extern IntPtr SendMessage(IntPtr hWnd, uint Msg, IntPtr wParam,
IntPtr lParam);

public static void hideParentBoxes()
{
List<TreeNode> parentNodes = GetAllParentNodes(frmRisk._frmRisk.treeAvailable);

TVITEM tvi = new TVITEM();
tvi.mask = TVIF_STATE;
tvi.stateMask = TVIS_STATEIMAGEMASK;
tvi.state = 0;
IntPtr lparam = Marshal.AllocHGlobal(Marshal.SizeOf(tvi));
Marshal.StructureToPtr(tvi, lparam, false);
//tvi.hItem = frmRisk._frmRisk.treeAvailable.SelectedNode.Handle;

foreach (TreeNode node in parentNodes) {
tvi.hItem = node.Handle;
SendMessage(frmRisk._frmRisk.treeAvailable.Handle, TVM_SETITEM, IntPtr.Zero, lparam);
}
//SendMessage(frmRisk._frmRisk.treeAvailable.Handle, TVM_SETITEM, IntPtr.Zero, lparam);
}

Basically I need to hide the checkboxes of all the nodes in an List of specific treenodes. Might the problem be that when I'm adding the selected nodes from treeAvailable to another list, I'm not getting the correct handles?
