FilteredTreeView - NationalInstruments.Controls.Shell
The filtered tree view (FTV) control allows users to search and browse a deep hierarchy of items and make selections. The FTV provides options for single or multiple selections. It can be displayed in dialogs as well as flyout menus.
Use the FTV if you need to display and allow users to browse and search a hierarchy of more than 2 levels, not including the root node.
If the user needs different sorting options of the data set (e.g. alphabetically, file type, date), use a list view control.
When deciding between the FTV and another control, consider this question: Is the hierarchical data set large enough to require a search mechanism? If so, use the FTV.

If the items have no hierarchy and the data set is small, do not use the FTV.
Instead use a different way of providing the options to the user.
