GetSibling Method

Gets the specified sibling of the UltraTreeNode.
Public Function GetSibling( _
   ByVal nodePosition As NodePosition _
) As UltraTreeNode
public UltraTreeNode GetSibling( 
   NodePosition nodePosition


Specifies which sibling to get relative to the node.

Return Value

A reference to the UltraTreeNode or Nothing if there is no matching sibling.

To determine if an UltraTreeNode has a Next/Previous sibling, use the HasSibling method.

The following sample code illustrates how to calculate the number of nodes in a tree.

Imports Infragistics.Win.UltraWinTree

Private Sub button18_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles button18.Click

    Dim totalNodesInTree As Integer
    Dim nonRootNodes As Integer
    Dim node As UltraTreeNode

    ' Call the tree control's 'GetNodeCount' method 
    ' with true to get the total numder of nodes
    ' in the tree.
    totalNodesInTree = Me.ultraTree1.GetNodeCount(True)

    Debug.WriteLine("Total nodes in tree = " + totalNodesInTree.ToString())

    ' Get the first root node
    node = Me.ultraTree1.Nodes(0)

    While Not node Is Nothing
        ' Add in root node's descendant nodes.
        nonRootNodes += node.GetNodeCount(True)

        ' Get the next root node
        node = node.GetSibling(NodePosition.Next)
    End While

    Debug.WriteLine("root nodes = " + Me.ultraTree1.Nodes.Count.ToString())
    Debug.WriteLine("non-root nodes = " + nonRootNodes.ToString())
    Debug.IndentLevel = 0

End Sub

	// Call the tree control's 'GetNodeCount' method 
	// with true to get the total numder of nodes

	int totalNodesInTree = this.ultraTree1.GetNodeCount( true );

	Debug.WriteLine( "Total nodes in tree = " + totalNodesInTree.ToString());

	Debug.WriteLine( "non-root nodes = " + nonRootNodes.ToString());
