Sometimes a tree may contains some logic, like do things when user select/deselect an item, this can easily done by listening event like this.

    @Listen("onSelect = #tree")
    public void onSelect(SelectEvent<Treeitem, String> event) {
        Treeitem ref = event.getReference();
        if (ref.isSelected()) {
            // do things when item is selected
        } else {
           // do things when item is deselected

ZK provide function that user can using UP, DOWN, PageUp, PageDown, Home, End key on a Tree to "Move Selection". This action will also send out a select event about new selected item, but not about deselected items. Therefore, previous code snippets dose not works when user use these keys.

My questions are :

1. How should I do so I can know exactly which items are deselected when user "Move Selection"?
2. If not, can I disable these keys ?

Here's the example : Example@ZK fiddle

Hi rangilin,

You can keep original selected items at first onSelect event and compare them in next onSelect event as follows:

private Set<Treeitem> originSelectedItems;

@Listen("onSelect = #tree")
public void onSelect(SelectEvent<Treeitem, String> event) {
    Set<Treeitem> currentSelectedItems = event.getSelectedItems();
    if (originSelectedItems == null)
        originSelectedItems = currentSelectedItems;
    // compare originSelectedItems and currentSelectedItems here to get deselected items.
