Sets the unique tag of a tree control item, which you use to modify the item or to gather information about the item programmatically.

You cannot create a tag that begins with TREE_. All tags that begin with TREE_ are reserved for use by LabVIEW. If the tag you wire to the method begins with TREE_, LabVIEW prepends an underscore (_) to create a valid tag for the item. If the tag you wire to the method begins or ends with white space, LabVIEW removes the white space.

This method is similar to the Tag text box in the Edit Tree Items dialog box.
