In this video, we will discuss, displaying organization employee chart using TreeView control. 

We will use the following table tblEmployee in this demo
table tblEmployee



We want to display above data in a TreeView control as shown below. A check box should be displayed next to every TreeNode. On clicking the button, the selected employees must be added to the listbox.

SQL script to create and populate table tblEmployee
Create table tblEmployee
(
   ID int identity primary key,
   Name nvarchar(50),
   ManagerId int foreign key references tblEmployee(ID)
)

Insert into tblEmployee values('David', NULL)
Insert into tblEmployee values('Sam', 1)
Insert into tblEmployee values('Pam', 1)
Insert into tblEmployee values('Mike', 1)
Insert into tblEmployee values('John', 2)
Insert into tblEmployee values('Tara', 2)
Insert into tblEmployee values('Todd', 4)

Stored procedure to retrieve data from table tblEmployee 
Create Proc spGetEmployees
as
Begin
Select ID, Name, ManagerId from tblEmployee
End

  2. Please help help help!!!

    I am building nodes dynamically from a DB table. When I run the code the node root node also appears which wont go away. I have tried everything. Looked up on the internet but haven't find a specific solution for this problem.

    My ProductCategory table looks like this http://imgur.com/xUvKK28

    here's the code in .cs file



    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

    if (!IsPostBack)
    {
    GetTreeViewItems();
    }
    }

    private void GetTreeViewItems()
    {

    string cs = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["DBCS"].ConnectionString;
    SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(cs);
    SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter("select * from ProductCategories where ParentId in (0,1,2)", con);
    DataSet ds = new DataSet();
    da.Fill(ds);

    ds.Relations.Add("ChildRows", ds.Tables[0].Columns["ProductCategoryId"],
    ds.Tables[0].Columns["ParentId"]);



    foreach (DataRow level1DataRow in ds.Tables[0].Rows)
    {
    if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(level1DataRow["ParentId"].ToString()))
    {
    TreeNode parentTreeNode = new TreeNode();
    parentTreeNode.Text = level1DataRow["ProductCategoryName"].ToString();
    parentTreeNode.Value = level1DataRow["ProductCategoryId"].ToString();
    parentTreeNode.NavigateUrl = "?catid=" + level1DataRow["ProductCategoryId"].ToString();

    int i = (int)level1DataRow["ProductCategoryId"];
    GetChildRows(level1DataRow, parentTreeNode);

    TreeView1.Nodes.Add(parentTreeNode);
    }
    }
    }

    private void GetChildRows(DataRow dataRow, TreeNode treeNode)
    {
    DataRow[] childRows = dataRow.GetChildRows("ChildRows");
    foreach (DataRow row in childRows)
    {
    TreeNode childTreeNode = new TreeNode();
    childTreeNode.Text = row["ProductCategoryName"].ToString();
    childTreeNode.Value = row["ProductCategoryId"].ToString();
    childTreeNode.NavigateUrl = "?catid=" + row["ProductCategoryId"].ToString();


    treeNode.ChildNodes.Add(childTreeNode);

    if (row.GetChildRows("ChildRows").Length > 0)
    {
    GetChildRows(row, childTreeNode);
    }
    }
    }
    }
