Tree Control Components

The above image shows the individual components that are available in a SftTree/OCX tree control. All components, except for the first column displaying an item's text, are optional. By turning all optional components off, the SftTree/OCX tree control can visually act as a simple list box.

Columns, Columns

Displaying multiple columns of data is a snap with SftTree/OCX. You don't have to worry about text alignment (how about those numbers?). Just tell SftTree/OCX the desired alignment for each column or cell, and move on to more important things. And, your users can even resize the columns so your application doesn't have to worry about the width of the columns. If a user wants to make a column wider, SftTree/OCX will do the work, and your job is done.


Multiple Selection?

Of course! SftTree/OCX fully supports single and multiple selection.


Cell Editing

Cells can be edited under program control, using most Windows controls and ActiveX controls. Using SftTree/OCX's built-in methods, your application can control cell editing and SftTree/OCX even notifies your application when data being entered should be validated. An application can easily implement "cell motion" allowing the tree control to function as a simple grid control.


Easy To Use

SftTree/OCX is not only very easy to use, it also includes a comprehensive documentation. And, SftTree/OCX is also backed by our technical support by telephone and email. Product support requires a current annual support subscription (the first year is included in the product's purchase price).

You also get complete help integration of the product's help into Visual Studio .NET, along with DynamicHelp and IntelliSense help (certain Visual Studio versions).

That's the good news. For the "not-so-good" news: If you like it, you will have to purchase the product to use it beyond the free 30 day trial. Of course, that's not all that terrible, considering all the features you'll get to use, along with the royalty-free distribution of the control with your completed end-user application.

And, don't forget, the product includes free support and all major updates for one entire year.

Please see our Product Overview page for included options and supported operating systems.
