Hi Guys,


Could somebody please provide a documentation how to develop a Custom Web Part that can connect with PI TreeView Web part and receives meta data information from PI Tree View Webpart.


I want to achieve following:


I am reading data from AF in to PITreeView Webpart. Lets assume this data is CarModels. Treeview will display different Car Models.


I have one custom developed webpart that provides details for the given Car Model input.


Now I want to connect both the webparts so that if User selects a particular Car Model in TreeView then Custom webpart should display the details.


I spent a couple of hours to figure this out but could'nt.


Thanks in advance.
