	<ul>
		<li>ID of opened node (as id url parameter) will be added to URL specified in  initXMLAutoLoading(url) during the call</li>
		<li>No additional ID is added to the url specified in loadXML(url) method during the call</li>
		<li>Using loadXML() without parameters you load url specified in initXMLAutoLoading(url) method</li>
	</ul>
<XMP>
XML Syntax:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='iso-8859-1'?>
<tree id="0">
	<item text="My Computer" id="1" child="1" im0="my_cmp.gif" im1="my_cmp.gif" im2="my_cmp.gif" call="true" select="yes">
		<userdata name="system">true</userdata>
		<item text="Floppy (A:)" id="11" child="0"  im0="flop.gif" im1="flop.gif" im2="flop.gif"/>
		<item text="Local Disk (C:)" id="12" child="0"  im0="drv.gif" im1="drv.gif" im2="drv.gif"/>
	</item>
	<item text="Recycle Bin" id="4" child="0" im0="recyc.gif" im1="recyc.gif" im2="recyc.gif"/>
</tree>
</XMP>	
		<strong>&lt;tree&gt;</strong> node is mandatory. It specifies the parent of loading block of data. According to this its id parameter specifies the ID oth that parent. 
		To load root level you need to specify the ID you used when created tree object: new myObjTree(boxObject,width,height,<b>0</b>) <br>
		
		<strong>&lt;item&gt;</strong> can contain subitems (in order to load more than one level at once) or not.<br>
		Mandatory parameters for this tag are:<br>
		<ul>
			<li>text - label of the node</li>
			<li>id - id of the node</li>
		Optional parameters for this tag are:<br>
			<li>im0 - image for node without children (tree will get images from the path specified in setImagePath(url) method)</li>
			<li>im1 - image for opened node with children</li>
			<li>im2 - image for closed node with children</li>
			<!--- <li>top - </li> --->
			<li>select - select node on load (0/1)</li>
			<li>call - call function on select(0/1)</li>
			<li>checked - check checkbox if exists(0/1)</li>
			<li>child - spec. if node has children (1) or not (0)</li><br>
		To set userdata directly within XML use <strong>&lt;userdata&gt;</strong><br>
		It has just one parameter: <br>
			<li>name</li><br>
		and value to specify userdata value
		</ul>
		</div>
<!--- Setting custom icons to nodes --->
		<h4 onclick="openFull(this)">Setting custom icons to nodes</h4
		><div style="display:none" class="block">
			There are two ways to set custom icons for the node. And it depends on the way you add items.<br>
			<em>Important:</em> tree will get images for the nodes from the path specified in setImagePath(url) method.<br><br>
			
			Javascript way. Using arguments of insertNewChild(...) or insertNewNext(...) methods:
<XMP>
<script type="text/javscript">
	var im0 = "doc.gif";//icon to show if node contains no children
	var im1 = "opened.gif";//if node contains children and opened
	var im2 = "closed.gif";//if node contains children and closed
	tree.insertNewItem(0,1,"New Node 1",0,im0,im1,im2);
	tree.insertNewNext(1,2,"New Node 2",0,"txt.gif","opened.gif","closed.gif");
</script>
</XMP>	
			XML way. Using parameters of &lt;item&gt; tag:
<XMP>
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='iso-8859-1'?>
<tree id="0">
	<item text="My Computer" id="1" child="1" im0="doc.gif" im1="my_opened.gif" im2="my_closed.gif">
</tree>
</XMP>	
			<li>im0 - image for node without children (tree will get images from the path specified in setImagePath(url) method)</li>
			<li>im1 - image for opened node with children</li>
			<li>im2 - image for closed node with children</li>
		</div>
<!--- Dynamical loading --->		
		<h4 onclick="openFull(this)">Building dynamic tree</h4
		><div style="display:none" class="block">
		If your tree should contain large amount of nodes (or you simply do not want to waist time loading hidden nodes), it would be better to load them on demand, not at once. 
		For this purpose we made the tree to load levels dynamically using XML.  <br>
		See chapter <em>"Loading data with XML"</em>
		</div>
		
		
		
		<h4 onclick="openFull(this)">Manipulating nodes</h4
		><div style="display:none" class="block">
		A few examples of manipulating node with tree object methods:
<XMP>
<script type="text/javscript">
	tree=new dhtmlXTreeObject('treeboxbox_tree',"100%","100%",0);
	...
	var sID = tree.getSelectedItemId();//get id of selected node
	tree.setLabel(sID,"New Label");//change label of selecte node
	tree.setItemColor(sID,'blue','red');//set colors for selected node's label (for not selected state and for selected state)
	tree.openItem(sID);//expand selected node
	tree.closeItem(sID);//close selected node
	tree.changeItemId(sID,100);//change id of selected node to 100
	alert("This node has children: "+tree.hasChildren(100));//show alert with information if this node has children
