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="Recycle Bin" id="4" child="0" im0="recyc.gif" im1="recyc.gif" im2="recyc.gif"/>
</tree>
</XMP>	
<br>
In <strong>PHP</strong> script use the following code for page header:<br>
<xmp>
<?php
	if ( stristr($_SERVER["HTTP_ACCEPT"],"application/xhtml+xml") ) {
  		header("Content-type: application/xhtml+xml"); } else {
  		header("Content-type: text/xml");
	}
	echo("<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"iso-8859-1\"?>\n"); 
?>
</xmp>
<br>
		<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>tooltip - tooltip for the node</li>
			<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>aCol - colour of not selected item</li>
			<li>sCol - colour of selected item</li>
			<!--- <li>top - </li> --->
			<li>select - select node on load (any value)</li>
			<li>style - node text style</li>
			<li>open - show node opened (any value)</li>
			<li>call - call function on select(any value)</li>
			<li>checked - check checkbox if exists(any value)</li>
			<li>child - spec. if node has children (1) or not (0)</li><br>
			<li>imheight - height of the icon</li>
			<li>imwidth - width of the icon</li>
			<li>topoffset - offset of the item from the node above</li>
		</ul>
<br><br>
To set <strong>userdata</strong> 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			
		</div>
<!--- Setting custom icons to nodes --->
		<a name="iconscust"><h4>Setting custom icons to nodes</h4></a>
		<div 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/javascript">
	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>
			<ul>
			<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>

<!--- Dynamical loading --->		
		<a name="dyntree"><h4>Building dynamic tree</h4
		></a><div 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 <a href="#xmlload">"Loading data with XML"</a><br>
		or for more details <a href="kb/dyn_loading.html">"Dynamical Loading in dhtmlxTree v.1.x"</a> article from our Knowledge Base. 
		</div>
		
		
		
		<a name="nodesman"><h4>Manipulating nodes</h4
		></a><div class="block">
		A few examples of manipulating node with tree object methods:
<XMP>
<script type="text/javascript">
	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
</script>
</XMP>	
		</div>
		
<a name="serialize"><h4>Serializing Tree</h4></a><div class="block">
Serialization methods allows getting tree in xml representation (xml string). Various levels of serializations define the number of tree parameters reflected in resulting XML:<br>

<XMP>
<script type="text/javascript">
	tree.setSerializationLevel(userDataFl,itemDetailsFl);
	var myXmlStr = tree.serializeTree();

</script>
</XMP>
<ul>
<li>no parameters - id,open,select,text,child</li>
<li>userDataFl true - userdata</li>
<li>itemDetailsFl true - im0,im1,im2,acolor,scolor,checked,open</li>
</ul>
</div>
	
	
<a name="tooltip"><h4>Tooltips</h4></a><div class="block">
There are three ways to set tooltip for the node:<br>
<ul>
	<li>Use node label ("text" attribute of item node) as tooltip - enableAutoTooltips(mode) - <em>false</em> by default</li>
	<li>Use "tooltip" attribute of item node for tooltip (it is used by default if this attribute was specified)</li>
	<li>setItemText(itemId,newLabel,<strong>newTooltip</strong>)</li>
</ul>
</div>

<a name="move"><h4>Moving Nodes</h4></a><div class="block">
To move Item programaticaly developer can use the following ways:	<br>
<br>
<strong>To move upp/down/left:</strong>
<XMP>
	tree.moveItem(nodeId,mode) 
</XMP>
<i>mode</i> possible values are:<br>
<ul>
<li>"down" - move node down in list of nodes (do not pay attention on hierarchy)</li>
<li>"up" - move node up in list of nodes</li>
<li>"left" - move node up in hierarchy</li>
</ul>
<br><br>

<strong>To move directly into position (within tree)</strong>
<XMP>
	tree.moveItem(nodeId,mode,targetId) 
</XMP>
<i>mode</i> possible values are:<br>
<ul>
<li>"item_child" - place node as child of node specified in third argument</li>
<li>"item_sibling" - place node as sibling of node specified in third argument</li>
</ul><br>
<i>targetId</i> - id of target node.
<br><br>	

<strong>To move node into position (to another tree)</strong>
<XMP>
	tree.moveItem(nodeId,mode,targetId,targetTree) 
</XMP>
<i>mode</i> possible values as above.<br>
<i>targetId</i> - id of target node (in target tree).<br>
<i>targetTree</i> - target tree object<br><br>

<strong>Cut/Paste way</strong><br>
Another way is to use doCut(),doPaste(id) - but this works with selected item only. Developer can also delete node in one place and create it in other (also the way ;-)).<br>
To give users the possibility to move items use drag-n-drop functionlity.
</div>

<a name="counter"><h4>Items Counter</h4></a><div class="block">
There is a possibility to display item children elements counter with the label of the node. To activate this feature use the following:	
<XMP>
<script>
	tree.setChildCalcMode(mode);
</script>
</XMP>	
Possible modes are:<br>
<ul>
	<li>"child"  - all childs on this level</li>
	<li>"leafs"  -  all childs without subchilds on this level</li>
	<li>"childrec" - all childs</li>
	<li>"leafsrec" all childs without subchilds</li>
	<li>"disabled" - nothing</li>
</ul>
<br>
Other related methods:<br>
<strong>_getChildCounterValue(itemId)</strong> - get current counter value<br>
<strong>setChildCalcHTML(before,after)</strong> - html around counter to change default [x]<br>
Use <em>child</em> attribute in xml if you need to set counter value when using dynamical loading.

</div>

<a name="smartxml"><h4>Smart XML Parsing</h4></a><div class="block">
The idea of Smart XML Parsing is simple - the entire tree structute loaded on client side, but only nodes which should be displayed are rendered. This helps to dramaticaly decrease loading time and general performance of large trees. Plus - in the contrary to Dynamical Loading - entrire tree structure is available for most of script methods (for example Search performed agains all nodes - not only rendered). To activate Smart XML Parsing use the following method:
<XMP>
<script type="text/javascript">
	tree.enableSmartXMLParsing(true);//false to disable
</script>
</XMP>	
Smart XML Parsing do not work if tree loaded fully expanded.
</div>
	
<a name="checkbox"><h4>Checkboxes in tree</h4></a><div class="block">
dhtmlxTree support two or three state checkboxes. Three state checkboxes means: checked/unchecked/some-child-checked (not all).
To enable three state checkboxes use the following method:	 	
<XMP>
<script type="text/javascript">
	tree.enableThreeStateCheckboxes(true)//false to disable
</script>
</XMP>	
Using three-state checboxes with smart xml parsing you need to specify third state manually (checked="-1"):
<xmp>
	<item checked="-1" ...>
		<item checked="1" .../>
		<item .../>
	</item>
</xmp>
Checkboxes can be disabled - <strong>disableCheckbox(id,state)</strong><br>
Some node can hide checkboxes - <strong>showItemCheckbox(id,state)</strong> (<strong>nocheckbox</strong> xml attribute)

</div>		

<a name="dnd"><h4>Drag-and-drop technics</h4></a><div class="block">
There are three modes of drag-n-drop (set with <strong>setDragBehavior(mode)</strong>):<br>
<ul>
<li>Drop as child - "child"</li><br>
<li>Drop as sibling - "sibling"</li><br>
<li>Complex mode (both previous are active) - "complex"</li> <br>
Plus two modes of each of them:<br>
<li>1. Common drag-n-drop</li><br>
<li>2. Copy with drag-n-drop - <strong>tree.enableMercyDrag(1/0)</strong></li><br>
</ul>

All modes can be changed on the fly.<br>
<br>
<h5>Event handlers</h5>
To process drag-n-drop before drop occured use onDrug event handler - <strong>setDragHandler(func)</strong>. If func doesn't return <em>true</em>, drop will be canceled.<br>
After drop occured there is another event - onDrop - handle it using setDropHandler(func).<br>
Both event handlers pass 5 parameters into the func object:<br>
<ul>
<li>id of node which was dragged</li>
<li>id of target node</li>
<li>id of target-before node (if drop as sibling)</li>
<li>tree object source</li>
<li>tree object target</li>
</ul>
</div>	

<a name="dndifr"><h4>Drag-and-drop between iframes</h4></a><div class="block">
Drag-n-drop between iframes enabled by default. All you need to do additionaly is to insert the following code into the page where no tree exists:<br>
<xmp>
<script src="js/dhtmlXCommon.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	new dhtmlDragAndDropObject();
</script>
</xmp>
</div>	

<a name="guide_perf"><h4>Increasing Performance</h4></a><div class="block">
Taking into account the general low performance of DHTML we introducrd two ways of increasing performance of large trees:<br>
1. <a href="#dyntree">Dynamical Loading</a><br>
2. <a href="#smartxml">Smart XML Parsing</a><br>
3. <a href="#distparse">Distributed Parsing</a><br>
Also be sure your tree was organized well - putting a lot of items on one level of the branch makes tree difficalt for visual perception and decrease performance, although <a href="#distparse">Distributed Parsing</a> can help here. 
</div>	

<a name="context_menu"><h4>Context Menu</h4></a><div class="block">
There is built in context menu in dhtmlxTree. 
The content of this menu can be set with XML or script. 
For changing context menu content depending on tree item developer can implement function for hidding/showing items of the same menu or associate different menues with different items. 
To enable context menu do the following: 
<XMP>
<script type="text/javascript">
//init menu
		aMenu=new dhtmlXContextMenuObject('120',0,"Demo menu");
		aMenu.menu.setGfxPath("../imgs/");		
		aMenu.menu.loadXML("menu/_context.xml");				
		aMenu.setContextMenuHandler(onMenuClick);
		
//init tree	
		tree=new dhtmlXTreeObject("treeboxbox_tree","100%","100%",0);
		...
		tree.enableContextMenu(aMenu); //link context menu to tree
function onMenuClick(id){
	alert("Menu item "+id+" was clicked");
}
</script>
</XMP>	<br>
<strong>HTTPS compatibility</strong>
<br><br>
For HTTPS compatibility we added two more parameters to context menu constructor:<br>
<ul>
<li>Images URL</li>
<li>Dummy page URL (url of the page to use for iframes src /now they are empty as iframes are used to make menu be positioned under selectboxes in IE/ in menu to make it compatible with https)
</ul>
<XMP>
<script type="text/javascript">
//init menu compatible with sHTML
	aMenu=new dhtmlXContextMenuObject('120',0,"Demo menu","imgs/","empty.html");
	...
</script>
</XMP>
</div>	

<a name="refresh"><h4>Refreshing nodes</h4></a><div class="block">
<li>refreshItems(itemIdList,source) to refresh only items from the itemIdList (not their children)</li>
<li>refreshItem(itemId) - to refresh children of item with itemId. In this case auto loading should be activated.</li>
</div>	

<a name="sort"><h4>Sorting nodes</h4></a><div class="block">
You can sort nodes in dhtmlxTree Pro (necessary file: dhtmlXTree_sb.js) using follwoing ways:<br>
<strong>Sort by label text (if no custom comparator specified)</strong><br>
<XMP>
	tree.sortTree(nodeId,order,all_levels);
</XMP>
<li><em>nodeId</em> - parent of the level to start sorting from (id of superroot for entire tree) </li>
<li><i>order</i> - sort direction: "ASC"/"DES"</li>
<li><em>all_levels</em> - if true, then all sublevels will be processed as well</li>
<br><br>
<strong>Custom defined sorting</strong><br>
<XMP>
	//define your comparator (in our case it compares second words in label)
	function mySortFunc(idA,idB){
		a=(tree.getItemText(idA)).split(" ")[1]||"";
		b=(tree.getItemText(idB)).split(" ")[1]||"";
		return ((a>b)?1:-1);
	}
	tree = new ...
	//attach your comparator to the tree
	tree.setCustomSortFunction(mySortFunc);
</XMP>
Comparator function gets 2 nodes IDs. Use your tree object there and these IDs to return a comparison result.
<br>
If custome comparator was specified, then tree.sortTree(...) method uses it for sorting.

</div>	

<a name="search"><h4>Search functionlity</h4></a><div class="block">
Search functionality of dhtmlxTree allows moving focus on node with label fitting searchString mask.<br> 
Has support for Smart XML Parsing.<br><br>
Script syntax:
<XMP>
	tree.findItem(searchString); //find item next to current selection
	tree.findItem(searchString,1,1)//find item previous to current selection
	tree.findItem(searchString,0,1)//search from top
</XMP>
Example of usage is included in Professional Edition package � samples/treeExPro2.html.
</div>	


<a name="multiline"><h4>Multiline tree items</h4></a><div class="block">
...allows displaying tree items in multiline mode. For now it is recommended to turn tree lines off for better appearance. To enable multiline feature you need to do the following: 
<XMP>
	tree.enableTreeLines(false);
	tree.enableMultiLineItems(true);
</XMP>
Example of usage is included in professional edition package � samples/treeExPro6.html.
</div>	

<a name="g_icons"><h4>Icons in Tree</h4></a><div class="block">
<h4>Set Icons</h4>
There is a way to set icons for the node explicetly using script (<strong>setItemImage,setItemImage2</strong>) or xml (<strong>im0,im1,im2</strong> attributes of item node):<br>
<li>im0 - item without children</li>
<li>im1 - closed item with children</li>
<li>im2 - opened item with children</li>
<h4>Set Icon Size</h4>
There is a way to set icon size for the whole tree or each node using script or xml:<br>

XML syntax for icon size per each item (optional):
<xmp><item ... imheight="Xpx" imwidth="Xpx"></item></xmp>

Script syntax:
<XMP>
	tree.setIconSize(w,h);//set global icon size
	tree.setIconSize(w,h,itemId)//set icon size for particular item
</XMP>	
</div>	

	</div>

<a name="keyboard"><h4>Keyboard Navigation</h4></a><div class="block">
By default dhtmlxTree doesn't have keyboard support, but you can add dhtmlxTree_kn.js file to you page
and enable keyboard support with just one javascript command: 
<XMP>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../js/dhtmlXTree_kn.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	tree.enableKeyboardNavigation(true);
</script>
</XMP>	
Default keys are:<br>
<li>Up arrow - select upper item</li>
<li>Down arrow - select lower item</li>
<li>Right arrow - open item</li>
<li>Left arrow - close item</li>
<li>Enter - call item's action</li><br><br>

But you also can assign your own keys for these:<br>
<XMP>
	tree.assignKeys([["up",104],["down",98],["open",102],["close",100],["call",101]]);
</XMP>	
where "up"/"down"/"open"/"close"/"call" are available actions and numbers are key codes.
</div>

<a name="distparse"><h4>Distrebuted Parsing</h4></a><div class="block">
Another way to increase big tree performance which has some levels with 
more than 100-200 nodes per level was introdused in v.1.3 of dhtmlxTree Professional Edition. 
This is  Distrebuted Parsing. The main advantage is that you get the level visible and 
ready to utilization before it completely parsed.<br>
To enable this functionlity use the following js command:
<XMP>
<script type="text/javascript">
	tree.enableDistributedParsing(mode,count,timeout);
</script>
</XMP>	
<strong>Parameters are:</strong>
<li><strong>mode</strong> - mandatory - true/false - enable/disable Distrebuted Parsing</li>
<li>count - optional - number of nodes in portion</li>

<a name="edititem"><h4>Editable Items</h4></a><div class="block">
Since version 1.3 dhtmlxTree Professional got editable items. To make items text editable just 
add <em>dhtmlXTree_ed.js</em> to the page and enable this functionlity using one script line:
<XMP>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../js/dhtmlXTree_ed.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	tree.enableItemEditor(mode);
</script>
</XMP>	
<strong>Parameters are:</strong>
<li><strong>mode</strong> - mandatory - true/false - enable/disable Editable items</li><br><br>

<strong>Event:</strong><br>
You can process various stages of editing item using the event handler, which can be set  
by <em>setOnEditHandler</em> method. Event occurs on 4 different stages of edit process: 
before editing started (cancelable), after editing started, before closing (cancelable), 
after closed. The function specified as input parameter for this method will get the following arguments:<br>
<li><strong>state</strong> - 0 before editing started , 1 after editing started, 2 before closing, 3 after closed</li>
<li><strong>id</strong> - id of edited items</li>
<li><strong>tree</strong> - tree object</li>
<li><strong>value</strong> - only for stage 2, value of editor</li>

<a name="dataprocessor"><h4>Simultanious Server Update</h4></a><div class="block">
Common tree manipulations - like drag-n-drop (including d-n-d between trees), delete item, insert item, update item label - 
can be simultaniously reflected in server database now (since v.1.3) using dataProcessor module.<br><br>
<strong>Main features of it are:</strong><br><br>
<li>Updated/Inserted item, marked with bold text, deleted - with line-through </li>
<li>You can define the mode for data processing (automatic/manual).</li> <br>
Updated/deleted items' data sent to server to the URL you specified (we call it serverProcessor). 
serverProcessor should return simple xml of specified format (see below) 
to let tree know about successful or not successful processing. 
All necessary after-save procedures will be done automaticaly. 
<br><br>


To enable this feature you need to do the following:<br>
<li>include <em>dhtmlXDataProcessor.js</em> to the page</li>
<li>create dataProcessor object for the tree:</li>
<XMP>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../js/dhtmlXDataProcessor.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	...
	tree.init();
	myDataProcessor = new dataProcessor(serverProcessorURL);
	myDataProcessor.init(treeObj);
</script>
</XMP>	
<strong>Parameter for dataProcessor is:</strong>
<li><strong>serverProcessorURL</strong> - mandatory - url of the file which will process incomming data. 
If you use our server-side routines, then it is "dataLink/update.php?ctrl=tree", where  </li><br>
<strong>Parameter for myDataProcessor.init is:</strong>
<li><strong>treeObj</strong> - mandatory - tree object to assign dataProcessor to</li>
<br><br>
<strong>If you do not use our built-in serverProcessor</strong> and use your own file for processing 
data sent by dataProcessor you need to know the following:
<li>All data comes in GET scope:</li>
<br> - <em>tr_id</em> - node ID
<br> - <em>tr_order</em> - node sequense on the level
<br> - <em>tr_pid</em> - parent ID
<br> - <em>tr_text</em> - node text(label)
<br> - userdata blocks passed with their names<br>
<li>serverProcessor should return valid XML of the following format:</li>
<XMP>
	<data>
		<action type='insert/delete/update' sid='incomming_node_ID' tid='outgoing_node_ID'/>
	</data>
</XMP>
Where <em>incomming_node_ID</em> and <em>outgoing_node_ID</em> are different for insert action only. For other actions they are equel.
<br><br>
<strong>To use unified server-side routine</strong> (available for PHP5/mySQL) do the following:<br>
<li>use "dataLink/get.php?ctrl=tree" for yourTree.loadXML(url)</li>
<li>use "dataLink/update.php?ctrl=tree" for new dataProcessor(url)</li>
<li>configure connection in dataLink/db.php</li>
<li>specify table columns in dataLink/tree_data.xml for corresponding values</li>
