Treeview with ImageList...

I want to have a TreeView that shows an image on some items, but not
all. Basically, if a certain condition is true, a caution icon is
placed next to the treeview item. The problem is that, by adding a
ImageList to the TreeView, the ImageIndex property of the items in the
TreeView defaults to 0. I could put a blank icon in the ImageList and
make it the 0 index image, however, this makes an ugly space.

Would I have to create my own treeview class (inheriting from it) and
override certain methods to do this?

If so, are there any articles that describe how to do such a thing? As
in, an article describing how to change the way a inherited control
(such as treeview) draws (if drawing is where something like this would
take place)?

It is my understanding that if I did override functions like that, that
I'd have to code all the functionality it has by default; unless there
is a specific function within the treeview class that deals with
drawing the imagelist icons.

As opposed to an article, are there any books that discuss this
advanced topic of modifying the way existings controls work? One other
thing I wanted to do was have a treeview that was also a listview; a
treeview with columns of information. Thank you.

Check this article of mine. I think I did that with the state image list for
some icons (notice the picture):

For Multicolumn treeviews, it's VB6 code but it can help if you need to do
it yourself...

Hello, I'm going round and round on how to best handle images for a treeview control. These are all known at design time so there is no dynamic aspect. That said, I want to associate the image with my project so I can easily edit them. It seems like I need to do this: - Create one bitmap per image.

Why in the heck does VB.NET want to set the SelectedImageIndex any time I set the ImageList for my treeview?!? Yes, I want to have images for the nodes, but I don't want an image to be displayed whenever I select a node. I simply want it to simply show the same image that is on the node. And once you set the ImageList, you can set the SelectedImageIndex to None/Nothing!!! I thought I could do it a hokey way by setting the...

Hi All, I have an array of 16x16 bitmaps (60 total). I've tried adding the array to the ImageList with the Add method, but the TreeView paints as if no BMP is present. The problem is the method does not 'break out' the bitmaps. If I specify Index 0, I get an unexpected result (horizontal compressing of the file).
