The TreeViewHitTestLocations enumeration is used by the TreeViewHitTestInfo class.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the TreeViewHitTestLocations enumeration. To run this example, paste the following code into a Windows Form that contains a TreeView control named treeView1, and populate the TreeView with items. Ensure that treeview1 and the MouseDown event for the form are associated with the HandleMouseDown method in this example.

void HandleMouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
    TreeViewHitTestInfo info = treeView1.HitTest(e.X, e.Y);
    if (info != null)
        MessageBox.Show("Hit the " + info.Location.ToString());
