SubClassing the Node type

Here is the problem I'm using the TreeView control to represent a system that is being developed be the customers, but I need to save more information then I can currently save in a node. ie currently I'm using the Text Property, Tag Property, and Icon Property.  But I need one more piece of information saved with each node.

What I was wondering is if it is possible to subclass the node class and make the TreeView control using this new node type.  The new node type would have an additional property called Number (or something more descriptive).

I need some examples on how this can be accomplished.

I'm using the treeview control that comes with VB5.0 not HTML.

Use Node as is, and set its Tag property to a key to a collection of objects having each one all the info you want.
