All MagicTree tree nodes have a status. Node status can be used to flag data that needs further attention, data that should be ignored and so on. The following statuses are currently defined:
By default nodes have status set to "None". When XML data is merged into the tree, newly created nodes are assigned the status "New".
The status of a node is indicated by its display color. Nodes that have descendants with non-default statuses show the number of ancestor nodes with non-default status:
"testdata" node has 88 descendants with "New" status, 1 descendant with "To do" status and 4 descendants with "Interesting" status
Node status can be assigned manually. Right-click a node, select "Set object status" from the context menu and select the status you want to assign.
It is also possible to set or reset status for a whole subtree. Select a node, right-click on it to invoke the context menu, select "Set object status (recursive)" and select the status you want to set.
