Right click on TreeView Node

How do I to get a right click on a treeview node to behave like a left click in that it will highlight the node selected by the right click action?  

Upon a right click I display a popup menu. Currently if I right click on a node which is not currently highlighted, it will display the menu for the node that is highlighted, and not the one I am clicking.

This would seem a reasonable thing to do as this is how it currently works in Windows explorer.  ie) if you click on  an item, then right click on a different item, the new item you right clicked will be highlighted, and the popup menu will be displayed for the new item.

Try this:
in TreeView1_MouseDown:
IF Button=2 then Set Treeview1.SelectedItem = TreeView.HitTest(X, Y).
'Display menu here

The proposed answer is good.  However, it still behaves differently than in Windows Explorer.  That is, if I right click and the menu appears, I can not right click on another node.  However, in Explorer, I can right click on a node, then immediately right click on another.  If I select the wrong node with the right click and then decide I need to select another node, I have to left on something else first, then right click.

Here is something that I worked up. This should help you:
    With TreeView1
        Set .SelectedItem = .HitTest(x, y)
    End With
    If Button = 2 Then
        PopupMenu mnu1, vbPopupMenuRightButton, x, y
    End If

The PopupMenu procedure only works with the left button by default. If you include the flag vbPopupMenuRightButton it will also work with the right button. This will allow the mousedown to event to fire on the treeview and will automatically hide the popup menu. Enjoy!
