Field Value


  • Nodes with controls is available only in HierarchyWin control (not in HierarchyWeb control) and only in non-3D chart.
  • If you set this property to display .NET controls and want to make the node background visible, then set a transparent background for the container control.
    Panel_1.BackColor = Color.FromArgb( 1, Color.Azure );
  • You can set an opaque backcolor or background image for the container control, in which case the node background will not be visible.
  • There is no need to set anchor or autosize property for the container control or for child controls. Controls will be resized according to node size.

//Create a container control
Panel Panel1 = new Panel( );            
//If the node to be transparent, set the required alpha
Panel1.BackColor = Color.FromArgb( 1/*alpha*/, Color.Azure );

//Add a linklabel with its event handler
LinkLabel LinkLabel1 = new LinkLabel( );
LinkLabel1.Click += new EventHandler( LinkLabel1_Click );
LinkLabel1.Text = "Click";
Panel1.Controls.Add( LinkLabel1 );//add to container control 

//Add a textbox
TextBox TextBox1 = new TextBox( );
TextBox1.Top = LinkLabel1.Height + 5/*gap*/;
Panel1.Controls.Add( TextBox1 );//add to container control

hierarchyWin1.hpcData.Nodes["Node3"].Control = Panel1;
