  • A hierarchy browser tree node can only be displayed if passed to the Node Configurations parameter of the hierarchy browser tree.
  • The hierarchy browser tree component does not permit links in images in node configurations.
  • The variable fv!nodeValue is only available when the node is used in either the Node Configurations or Next Column Values parameters of the browser.
  • The Identifier field can be any value, but using long strings or large data types could cause performance problems. We recommended using a data type's primary key, if available.

For an example of how to configure a hierarchy browser tree node, see the example in the Tree Browser Component page.
