Hi all--

New to the VB6 treeview control.  I've found that it is easy to get a node's Parent, but what is the best way to find the Parent of a node's Parent (or grandparent as it were).

In other words:

Level 1
     Level 2
          Level 3

How can I find the Level 1 Information when Level 3 is selected?


Thanks,
Damon

I suppose i should explain that better

[level3].parent as you know, gets the parent to the item in level3 (replace [level3] with whatever method you use to get that item).

but the parent of level3, is just another node, so therefore, you can use the parent property to get its parent. hence

[level3].parent.parent

i should have explained this better before.
