Gets the tree node that has been checked, expanded, collapsed, or selected.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
The following example illustrates a customized TreeView. By inheriting the TreeView class, this custom version has all the functionality of a normal TreeView. A unique appearance is provided by changing various property values in the constructor. Because ShowPlusMinus is set to false, the customized control also overrides OnAfterSelect so that nodes can be expanded and collapsed when they are clicked.
A control that is customized in this way can be used throughout an organization, making it easy to provide a consistent interface without requiring the control properties to be specified in each individual project.
