Short Name: Edit Tree Items.Add Item to End

Requires: Base Development System

Class: TreeControl Methods

To Use: Create a method.

Adds an item after all existing items in the tree control.


Data typeNameRequiredDescription
Left Cell StringNoText to display in the leftmost cell for the new item. The default is an empty string.
Child TextNoArray of strings to display in the remaining cells for the new item. The default is an array of empty strings.
Child TagNoUnique tag for the new item. The default is the string you wire to Left Cell String. If an existing tag already uses that string, LabVIEW appends a number to the string to create a unique tag for the new item. You cannot create a tag that begins with TREE_. All tags that begin with TREE_ are reserved for use by LabVIEW. If the tag you wire to the method begins with TREE_, LabVIEW prepends an underscore (_) to create a valid tag for the new item. If the tag you wire to the method begins or ends with white space or non-printing characters, such as a tab or new line, LabVIEW removes the white space or non-printing characters.
New Item IndentationNoThe level in the hierarchy at which to place the new item. Wire a value of 0 (default) to place the new item at the highest level in the hierarchy, wire a value of 1 to indent the new item one level, and so on. If the value you wire to this input would indent the new item more than one level under its parent item, the method returns an error.
Child Only?NoIf TRUE, you cannot indent other items under the new item. The default is FALSE. This property is similar to the Child-Only Item item on the shortcut menu of a tree control.
