I have created, treeview with checkboxes, but if i select a folder it export the parent node to a listview/datagridview! but it didn't exporting the subfolders (child nodes). Can anyone give me idea to solve this?

What I have tried:

C#
private void treeView1_BeforeExpand(object sender, TreeViewCancelEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Node.Nodes.Count > 0)
            {
                if (e.Node.Nodes[0].Text == "..." && e.Node.Nodes[0].Tag == null)
                {
                    e.Node.Nodes.Clear();


                    string[] dirs = Directory.GetDirectories(e.Node.Tag.ToString());

                    foreach (string dir in dirs)
                    {
                        DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo(dir);
                        TreeNode node = new TreeNode(di.Name, 0, 1) { Checked = true };

                        try
                        {
                            node.Tag = dir;


                            if (di.GetDirectories().Count() > 0)
                                node.Nodes.Add(null, "...", 0, 0).Checked = node.Checked;
                        }
                        catch (UnauthorizedAccessException)
                        {
                            node.ImageIndex = 12;
                            node.SelectedImageIndex = 12;
                        }
                        catch (Exception ex)
                        {
                            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message, "Tree_to_Grid", MessageBoxButtons.OK,
                            MessageBoxIcon.Error);
                        }
                        finally
                        {
                            node.Checked = e.Node.Checked;
                            e.Node.Nodes.Add(node);
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
        }

        private void treeView1_AfterCheck(object sender, TreeViewEventArgs e)
        {
            button1.Enabled = false;
            TreeNode node = e.Node;
            bool is_checked = node.Checked;
            foreach (TreeNode childNode in e.Node.Nodes)
            {
                childNode.Checked = e.Node.Checked;
            }
            treeView1.SelectedNode = node;   
        }

Idea? Sure: the debugger.

You did not really explain what you want to achieve. Apparently, this is not a copy of folders. It looks more like virtual tree view which shows file system objects as you browse the tree...

When you tick any parent node, its child nodes also gets ticked automatically, you just need to copy them.
checkout below code, which gives you selected node of treeview
C#
List<string> CheckedNames( System.Windows.Forms.TreeNodeCollection theNodes)
{
    List<string> aResult = new List<string>();

    if ( theNodes != null )
    {
        foreach ( System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode aNode in theNodes )
        {
            if ( aNode.Checked )
            {
                aResult.Add( aNode.Text );
            }

            aResult.AddRange( CheckedNames( aNode.Nodes ) );
        }
    }

    return aResult;
}</string></string></string>

I have added this in my current application already!

so what is the issue, just you need to collect the checked node and copy them with System.IO namespace.

Ya! I want to copy all the treeview parent node as well as childnode to datagridview!

iterate all node and fill data table with it, then directly bind the datatable to gridview as datasource
