The TreeViewCtl sample illustrates Windows Forms in a .NET Framework application, focusing on manipulating the properties of TreeView controls:

  • Sorting
  • Hot tracking
  • Display: showing lines, root lines, plus-minus sign, and check boxes
  • Hiding the selection
  • Attaching images
  • Amount of indent
