BeforeActivate Event

Occurs before a tree node is Activated.
Public Event BeforeActivate As BeforeNodeChangedEventHandler
public event BeforeNodeChangedEventHandler BeforeActivate
Event Data

The event handler receives an argument of type CancelableNodeEventArgs containing data related to this event. The following CancelableNodeEventArgs properties provide information specific to this event.

Cancel (Inherited from System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs) 
TreeNode The UltraTreeNode (read-only)

The CancelableNodeEventArgs.TreeNode property of the CancelableNodeEventArgs contains a reference to UltraTreeNode that will become the new ActiveNode.

Settng the System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs.Cancel property to true will prevent the node from activating.

The following sample code illustrates some of the information available in the BeforeActivate event.

For an overview of how to handle events in Visual Basic or Visual C#, see Event Handlers in Visual Basic and Visual C#. For specific information and code examples illustrating how to consume events in your application, see Consuming Events in the .NET Framework Developer's Guide.
