Treeview problem (Very Hard)

I have a drag and drop system from a treeview to a rich text box, which when you select and drag a node from the tree it places the tag value into the rich text box, however i want to just click on a node on the tree and click a button which will assign the value of its tag to a variable named puretext, this is a global variable which i am passing to another class file.


The code below is the drag and drop code, when you drag it assigns the tag of the selected node to PureText, however i dont want to have to drag the node into the text just click on it then press a button to load the other class and the tag value of the node will be in the global variable PureText.


Thanks.

If you need more code or clarrification just ask, please help asap

                        ((DragEventArgs)e).Effect = DragDropEffects.None;
            }
        
        
            private void richTextBox1_DragDrop(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs e)
            {
                  TreeNode
                        MyNode=(TreeNode)e.Data.GetData("System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode");
                  PureText = MyNode.Tag.ToString();

                  int i;
                  String s;

                  i = richTextBox1.SelectionStart;
                  s = richTextBox1.Text.Substring(i);
                  richTextBox1.Text = richTextBox1.Text.Substring(0,i);

                  richTextBox1.Text = richTextBox1.Text + PureText;
                  richTextBox1.Text = richTextBox1.Text + s;
            }




Load method for the class i want to load when i select a node from the tree then click a button



private void edit_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
                  editbib latexide = new editbib();
                  latexide.ShowDialog(this);


            }

in the Click event of the button:

if( treeView1.SelectedNode != null )
     PureText = treeView1.SelectedNode.Tag;

when you click the button, the Tag value of the selected TreeNode will be copied to the PureText variable

notes:
+ variable names should start with a lowercase letter (myNode instead of MyNode, pureText instead of PureText, ...)
+ in OO there's no such thing as a global variable :)
