how to select next node in treeview control

P: n/a

I have a form with treeview control loaded from xml document,text box, two
buttons named "Find" and "FindNext" and my treeview which looks like below.
Details
|__ policy status
|__ created by
|__ cover type
Risk address
|__Line1
|__Line2
|__Line3
|__Line4
Proposers
|__ForeName
|__Initials
|__Surname
|__Company
|__DOB

Drivers
|__ForeName
|__Initials
|__Surname
|__Company
when user enters some text in text box like "Surname" and click "find"
button i need to select(highlight) the "surname" node in "proposers" node in
treeview which i have done by using the following code.

Dim blnSelectNode As Boolean = False

Private Sub btnFind_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles btnFind.Click
Try
Dim textval As String = ""
textval = Trim(txtFind.Text) 'textbox value
If Len(textval) = 0 Then
MsgBox("Please enter some text to find")
txtFind.Focus()
Else
' write code to find nodes or childs

blnSelectNode = False
LoopParents(textval, Me.TreeView1.Nodes)
If Not blnSelectNode Then MsgBox("Node not found",
MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Document Manager")
End If

Catch ex As Exception
MsgBox(ex.Message)
End Try
End Sub
Private Sub LoopParents(ByVal sValue As String, ByVal oNodes As
TreeNodeCollection)
Dim tnode
For Each tnode In oNodes
If InStr(LCase(tnode.Text), sValue) > 0 Then
Me.TreeView1.SelectedNode = tnode
Me.TreeView1.Select()
blnSelectNode = True
Exit Sub
End If
If Not blnSelectNode Then LoopChilds(tnode, sValue)
Next
End Sub
Private Sub LoopChilds(ByVal PNode As TreeNode, ByVal sValue As String)
Dim TNode As TreeNode
For Each TNode In PNode.Nodes
If InStr(LCase(TNode.Text), sValue) > 0 Then
Me.TreeView1.SelectedNode = TNode
Me.TreeView1.Select()
blnSelectNode = True
Exit Sub
End If
Next
End Sub


Now i need to select the next matching node(if found) i.e "surname" in
"Drivers" node when user clicks the "findnext" button. I am not sure how to
do this one. All i need to do is select(highlight) the next matching node in
treeview control.

Any help would be appreciated
Cheers

Me.TreeView1.SelectedNode = tnode should be selecting the node of interest
for you. To "scroll" that node into view use tnode.ensurevisible.

Here is something I threw together. Maybe it will help you out? Given a
