Simple Tri-State TreeView

TriStateTreeView

Introduction

Microsoft provides a TreeView control which isn’t able to display tree state checkboxes. There are many ways to implement this feature such as window proc hooking and the other stuff. This article will show you another, more simpler way using techniques provided by the .NET Framework only.

This control only inherits the original tree view control replacing CheckBoxes property usage with usage of the StateImageList and primarily overriding the node click event procedure to handle setting the tri-state.
To conform to all Windows UI styles, the state image list will be built dynamically using the CheckBoxRenderer class provided by the .NET Framework while the control is created.

Background

There may be needs to have a tree view control showing on parent nodes that check states its children aren’t all the same. Further there may be needs, refreshing check states up / down the tree while checking a sub-/super-node.

Using techniques such as window proc hooking isn’t the right way for everyone because it isn’t always easy to debug. Further using static images would avoid displaying right checkboxes on different Windows UIs.

Using the Control / Code

Add the TriStateCheckBoxTreeView.cs to your project and simply drop the control to a form. You’ll find the differences to the normal tree view control provided by the .NET Framework in the property grid. There is now a property to enable tri-state usage directly below the CheckBoxes-property.

Check state checking is done as normal using the Checked property from the tree node. To determine all three possible states, you may check the StateImageIndex giving the following three possible indexes:

  • 0 – Unchecked
  • 1 – Checked
  • 2 – Mixed

Rendering checkboxes using CheckBoxRenderer

Bitmap GetCheckBoxBitmap(CheckBoxState myState)
{
    Bitmap bmpCheckBox = new Bitmap(16, 16);
    Graphics gfxCheckBox = Graphics.FromImage(bmpCheckBox);
    CheckBoxRenderer.DrawCheckBox(gfxCheckBox, new Point(2, 2), myState);
    gfxCheckBox.Save();
 
    return bmpCheckBox;
}

Setting the tri-state

protected override void OnNodeMouseClick(TreeNodeMouseClickEventArgs e)
{
 Stack<TreeNode> stNodes;
 TreeNode tnBuffer;
 bool bMixedState;
 int iSpacing;
 int iIndex;
 
    base.OnNodeMouseClick(e);
    iSpacing = ImageList == null ? 0 : 18;			// if user clicked area
    if (e.X > e.Node.Bounds.Left - iSpacing ||		// *not* used by the state
        e.X < e.Node.Bounds.Left - (iSpacing + 16))		// image we can leave here.
    { return; }
 
    tnBuffer = e.Node;					// buffer clicked node and
    tnBuffer.Checked = !tnBuffer.Checked;			// flip its check state.
 
    stNodes = new Stack<TreeNode>(tnBuffer.Nodes.Count);	// create a new stack and
    stNodes.Push(tnBuffer);					// push buffered node first.
    do {							// let's pop node from stack,
        tnBuffer = stNodes.Pop();				// inherit buffered node's
	tnBuffer.Checked = e.Node.Checked;			// check state and push
        for (int i = 0; i < tnBuffer.Nodes.Count; i++)		// each child on the stack
            stNodes.Push(tnBuffer.Nodes[i]);			// until there is no node
    } while (stNodes.Count > 0);				// left.
			
    bMixedState = false;
    tnBuffer = e.Node;					// re-buffer clicked node.
    while (tnBuffer.Parent != null) {			// while we get a parent we
        foreach (TreeNode tnChild in tnBuffer.Parent.Nodes)	// determine mixed check states
            bMixedState |= (tnChild.Checked != tnBuffer.Checked);// and convert current check
        iIndex = (int)Convert.ToUInt32(tnBuffer.Checked);	// state to state image index.
        tnBuffer.Parent.Checked = bMixedState || (iIndex > 0);	// set parent's check state and
        if (bMixedState)					// state image in dependency
            tnBuffer.Parent.StateImageIndex = CheckBoxesTriState ? 2 : 1;
        else						// of mixed state.
            tnBuffer.Parent.StateImageIndex = iIndex;
        tnBuffer = tnBuffer.Parent;				// finally buffer parent and
    }							// loop here.
}

Limitations

This code has been written as simple as possible. There is one limitation you should keep in mind: If you’re adding nodes from code you have to call control’s Refresh() after adding has been completed to ensure all nodes got the right state.
