Accessing the parent element of a tree node !


Hi All,

I’m building a tree application, in which the user has the option for creating a new node at any level he wants. But my problem is, If the user wants to create a node at the same level of the selected node, how do I retrieve the parent element? Can someone help me in this regard? I’ve done the following

1) Created a node “TreeNode” with the required attributes & the recursive node.

2) When the user clicks on any node, I am able to retrieve the selected element through recursive traversal (i.e. the instance of TreeNodeElement, say elmt)

3) I was able to retrieve the parent element through the function elmt.node().getParentElement(). But it returns an instance of IWDNodeElement, which does not have the recursive node. Ofcourse, I cannot typecast IWDNodeElement to “TreeNodeElement”.

Then How do I retrieve the “TreeNodeElement” instance of the parent element? Someone please help…..!

Thanks in Advance,

Best Regards,
