Are there plans to release a TreeView control that supports multiselect?

I was just wondering if there are any plans to release a WPF TreeView control that has multiselect support built-in, including support for control+clicking multiple items, shift+clicking, selecting multiple items via a mouse click and drag, etc... Oddly, I don't see any control vendors providing a real solution (using checkboxes in TreeView items is just a workaround IMO) and Microsoft seems uninterested in offering this. Even just an attached behavior for TreeView multiselect would be valuable.

Thanks,

-Craig

Hi Craig,

Thanks, I'll write down the suggestion.  We don't have such a control planned at this time.

I would like to wholeheartedly second this request. It seems very hard to find a professional quality multi select tree view, which is strange because there are many useful scenarios for it. I'm sure Actipro would make a lot of people happy with creation of one considering the high quality of your other controls, my company and I included.

Thanks for considering this!

Hi Daniel,

Our TreeListBox and TreeListView controls in the Grids product supports mult-select.  If you want to see this in action, take a look at the Grids / TreeListBox QuickStarts / Selection sample.

Also for the TreeListBox I would like for a selected item, only that item(Text) to be selected not the entire row. Is this possible ?

Hello,

The TreeListBox.HasTreeLines property was added in v20.1.1.

As for not highlighting the entire row for selection, we don't have an option for that.  You could clone our default style/template for TreeListBoxItem and alter it to achieve that.  Since your company is a WPF Studio customer, whoever is listed on the account can download our default styles/templates from their purchases list.  Then assign the updated TreeListBoxItem Style to the TreeListBox.ItemContainerStyle property.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
