Hi All,

Can i find the full path of the selected node of a tree view on client side?

I am binding this treeview from dataset and populating a context menu on the treeview. But i want to show the full path(text of all parent nodes separated by some separator) both on node click and on context menu.

Is there any way around?

Please help!!

Whats the problem in it? You should be able to form the path and append. Whats the issue you are facing while trying it?

Are you trying to do this without post-back?

Hi All,

Seems no body is interested in this topic.
Anyway I have got some alternative to do this.

When we bind treeview through XML or dataset, each node is actually rendered as an anchor(a) tag.

So you get a client side function called on "OnContextMenu" or "OnClick" of the treeview and follow this code.

var obj = window.event.srcElement;
var fullpath = obj.href();

Here in fullpath, you can get your fullpath for the selected node, added to some extra information. You can just split it and get the full path. And in my treeview, I am not giving any path for the URL field of the nodes.

In my case, i am splitting it by ','.
