TreeView duplicating nodes and also blowing up IE

I'm having some serious problems with the TreeView control.

I've got a control that inherits TreeView and has some methods that
firstly create a TreeNode then does some recursive procedure to add all
the children from a database of a sort. Then once this is complete I
clear the nodes, then add the TreeNode so it should be the only root

The only problem is that for some very VERY strange reason there are
two root nodes, with duplicate child nodes. This is very bizare as
this.Nodes.Coun t returns 1 and base.Nodes.Coun t also returns 1, so
there SHOULD be 1 root node but there are two.

Also, I created another TreeView inherited control that would act as
the base for this other TreeView which does all the painting by me, so
that I can have different colors for highlighting and some other things
and to make it double buffered and not flicker like mad but when I use
this control as the base instead of the .NET one when I do
this.Nodes.Add it basically blows the control up in Internet

So basically the TreeView is driving me slightly nuts, either I can
have a TreeView with duplicate nodes that flickers when it updates the
nodes, else I can have one thats flicker free and nice but only works
when I add the nodes in edit mode, if I try adding them in code it
kills Internet Explorer...

any ideas? I'm already invoking back on the UI thread if it's needed to
add the root node, so I know the problems not that...

Some code:

TreeNode rootNode = new TreeNode();
FormatNode(ref rootNode, service); // this passes a service class and
root and formats it text and color from the service classes details
rootNode = AddChildren(roo tNode); // add its children with recursive

base.Nodes.Clea r();
if (this.InvokeReq uired == true)
this.Invoke(new UpdateRootHandl er(AddRoot),
rootNode);//this.Nodes.Add( rootNode);
this.Nodes.Add( rootNode);


private void AddRoot(TreeNod e node)
this.Nodes.Add( node);


private TreeNode AddChildren(Tre eNode node)
if (node == null)
Trace.WriteLine ("AddChildre n method has been passed a null
return node;

Service parentService = (Service)node.T ag;
if (parentService == null)
Trace.WriteLine ("AddChildre n method has been passed a null
service instance");
return node;
// Retrieve list of child services
// & check the results returned are valid
ArrayList children = parentService.C hildren;
if (children == null || children.Count == 0)
Trace.WriteLine ("Service: " + parentService.N ame + " has no
return node;
// Increment each child service adding
// them one by one to the hierarchy
foreach (Service childService in children)
TreeNode childNode = null;

childNode = new TreeNode();
FormatNode(ref childNode, childService);
node.Nodes.Add( childNode);

// Recursively add a child's children
AddChildren(chi ldNode);

return node;

These issue's are starting to drive me slightly mad, I can't understand
why either of these problems are occurring... according to the nodes
collection there IS only one root, I really can't understand why two
are being displayed, it really is rather strange... and why the other
is blowing up I really don't know... I've spent ages debugging with
traces and attaching to Internet Explorer's process...

I am using a TreeView to display the hierarchy of a strongly-typed collection (inherited from CollectionBase). The order of the nodes in the TreeView is strictly tied to the order in which they appear in the underlying collection. However, the user must be able to reorder certain items in the collection--and, hence, the TreeView. I have created a context-sensitive menu that allows the user to move an item in the collection either up or...

Hello, I am trying to add sub items to a unique root node but it seems that it is duplicating the root node instead of placing subnode under it. Here is my code. Is ther anyone who can show me how to verify if the root node already exists and if it does add to the existing root node , else create a new one. Any help is GREATLY appreciated :)

Hi, Is there a way for TreeView to have multiple selections? But I am not talking about its checked boxes. I want a way similar to ListView with MultiSelect = True. So I can use or key and click to make multiple selections. Then when I simply click one item, all previous selections are gone. Thanks in advance.
