Deprecated - Provided for compatibility with earlier versions only - Use Items.Expand and Item.Expand instead

Syntax

VB.NETobject.Expand(ByVal ItemIndex As Integer, ByVal Preserve As Boolean, ByVal Depth As Boolean)
VBobject.Expand(ByVal ItemIndex As Long, ByVal Preserve As Boolean, ByVal Depth As Boolean)
C#.NETvoid object.Expand(int ItemIndex, bool Preserve, bool Depth);
VC++HRESULT object->Expand(long ItemIndex, VARIANT_BOOL Preserve, VARIANT_BOOL Depth);
CHRESULT object->raw_Expand(long ItemIndex, VARIANT_BOOL Preserve, VARIANT_BOOL Depth);

object

A SftTree object.

ItemIndex

The zero-based index of the item to expand. If -1 is specified, all items on level 0 are collapsed.

Preserve

Defines whether the expand/collapse state is restored. This argument is ignored if the Depth argument is True.

PreserveDescription
TrueRestores the expand/collapse state of dependent items made visible, as saved by a previous call to Items.Collapse or Item.Collapse.
FalseThe expand/collapse state is not restored. Only the item defined by ItemIndex is expanded and immediate dependents are made visible. They may be expanded or collapsed based on the Depth argument.

Depth

Defines the depth of the items to become visible.

DepthDescription
TrueExpands all dependent items, including non-immediate dependent items. Preserve is ignored as all dependents are expanded.
FalseExpands dependent items, based on the Preserve settings.

Comments

Deprecated - Provided for compatibility with earlier versions only - Use Items.Expand and Item.Expand instead

The Expand method expands an item so its dependents become visible.

The Expand method expands all dependent items of item ItemIndex and restores the expand/collapse state of all dependent items, as saved by a previous Items.Collapse or Item.Collapse method call.

If an item is already expanded when using Expand, the item remains unchanged. It does not make any indirect dependents visible. To make sure that an item's indirect dependents are shown, use the Item.Collapse method first, which collapses the item (and all dependents), followed by Expand. Now all dependents are visible.
