Returns the identifier associated with an element (node or leaf) in a TreeView control.
Example of TreeView control:
Vocabulary linked to a TreeView control
// Return the identifier of "Desserts" node in the "TREE_TVRecipe" TreeView control
Res = TreeIdentifier(TREE_TVRecipe, "Recipes" + TAB + "Desserts")
<Result> = TreeIdentifier(<TreeView control> , <Element path>)
<Result>: Character string
  • Identifier of specified element,
  • Empty string ("") if no identifier is associated with the element or if the element does not exist.
If the identifier (defined by TreeAdd or TreeModify) is not a character string but an integer, you may have to convert the result into an integer in order to handle this identifier (Val).
<TreeView control>: Control name
Name of the TreeView control to be used.
<Element path>: Character string
Full path of element to use. This parameter has the following format:
"<Root name>" + TAB + ["<Name of 1st node>" + TAB + ...
["<Name of 2nd node>" + TAB + [...]]]"<Leaf name>"

Retrieving the identifier of an element with management of duplicates

To retrieve the identifier of the selected element taking the duplicates into account, <Element path> must correspond to the following code:
TreeSelect(<TreeView control>, True)
For example:
Trace(TreeSelect(TREE_TreeView1) + "/" + ...
TreeIdentifier(TREE_TreeView1, TreeSelect(TREE_TreeView1, True)))
