ShellTreeView Properties

The ShellTreeView type exposes the following members.

Public propertyAllowDrag
Use this property to turn on or off drag support with the Windows Explorer.
Public propertyAllowDrop
Use this property to turn on or off drag and drop support with the Windows Explorer.
(Overrides ControlAllowDrop.)
Public propertyAutoExpandDelay
The delay in milliseconds after that a folder is expanded automatically during a drag and drop operation. A value of 0 disables the auto expand feature.
Public propertyAutomaticRefresh
Enables the automatic refreshes of the control, e.g. when a file is added or deleted in the current directory.
Public propertyAutoScrollDelay
The delay in milliseconds after that the control scrolls automatically during a drag and drop operation. A value of 0 disables the auto scroll feature.
Public propertyBackColor
A System.Drawing.Color that represents the background color of the control. The default is the value of the System.Windows.Forms.Control.DefaultBackColor property.
(Overrides TreeViewBackColor.)
Public propertyChangeDelay
Specifies the delay between when a node is selected and when the handling of this change is processed.
Public propertyCheckBoxes
Use this property to turn on or off the checkboxes for file and folder selection. The checkboxes will only work, if a ShellControlConnector instance has been assigned to the ShellControlConnector property of this component. It will automatically synchronize the selection state of the items in multiple shell controls linked together with this ShellControlConnector.
Public propertyCheckBoxMode
Use this property to display checkboxes for the control.
Public propertyCompactRoots
Reduces the space between the root nodes of the Tree.
Public propertyContextMenuStrip
The ContextMenuStrip is converted to an ordinary ContextMenu. This makes it possible to merge your ContextMenuStrip with the Default ShellContextMenu provided by the system. The "Opening" and "Closing" events of the ContextMenuStrip will be raised if the ContextMenu "Popup"/"Collapse" event occurs. For menu items only the "Click" event is available. All other events are not available. All ToolStripMenuItems are converted, and ToolStripSeparators are recognized. The ShortCut Keys defined in a ToolStripMenuItem are not converted. If you would like to have the ShortCut-Keys, leave this Property null, instead set the ContextMenu property to your menu explicitly.
Public propertyCopyMode
Copy mode allows you to control the behaviour when files or folders get dropped.
Public propertyCode exampleCustomImages
Contains an ImageList holding custom icons.
Public propertyDrawMode
The value of the DrawMode property must always be TreeViewDrawMode.OwnerDrawAll. This is why the Property is reimplemented here. A different setting is ignored, and a debug message is shown.
Public propertyCode exampleEmptyIconIndex
Gets the zero-based index of the empty icon.
Public propertyFileNameFormat
Specifies, whether filename are presented with file extensions or not. By default, this depends on the respective setting in Windows Explorer.
Public propertyFileSystemOnly
If FileSystemOnly is set to True, objects and virtual folders which do not have a file system path, will not be displayed. Exceptions are 'My Computer', 'Libraries' and 'Network'
Public propertyFilter
You can use a single pattern, e.g. '*.doc' or concatenate several patterns using semicolons to separate them, e.g. '*.exe;*.com'.
Public propertyFont
The font used to display text in the control.
(Overrides ControlFont.)
Public propertyHideSelection

Public propertyNodes

Public propertyNoFillOnStartup

Public propertyRootedAt

Gets or sets the tree node that is currently selected in the ShellTreeView control.
Public propertySelectedPath

If the currently selected path is not a file system folder, SelectedPath returns an empty string and you should use the SpecialFolder property to get the type of this path. If you`re looking for the path an operation was performed on (e.g. Drop), use the OperationPerformed event.
Protected propertyShellChangeNotifier
Returns the reference to the ShellChangeNotifier that is associated with this instance.
