Set SelectedNode in Treeview on RightClick

I have a treeview and a context menu. When I right click on a node, it becomes highlighted, and my a context menu appears. So far so good. However, when I msgbox the text of the node, it tells me that the selected node is not the one highlighted. IF YOU POPUP A CONTEXT MENU, THE HIGHLIGHTED NODE WILL CHANGE WITHOUT CHANGING THE SELECTED NODE.

How can I change the selected node to the node highlighted on right click?

put this code in the TreeView1_MouseUp event .. this code will select the rightclicked node and display the context menu at the point of right click

    Private Sub TreeView1_MouseUp(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles TreeView1.MouseUp

        If e.Button = MouseButtons.Right Then
            TreeView1.SelectedNode = TreeView1.GetNodeAt(e.X, e.Y)

        End If

        If TreeView1.SelectedNode Is Nothing Then
            Exit Sub
        End If

        Dim spot As Point = Me.PointToClient(TreeView1.PointToScreen(New Point(e.X, e.Y)))
        ContextMenu1.Show(Me, spot)
    End Sub
