How do assign a value to a treenode

Ok, im using a treeview to access a bunch of data from a database.... example..

Project
`----LEVEL
`----LEVEL
Project
`----LEVEL
`----LEVEL
`----LEVEL
Project
Project
Project

etc...

Now I have it all populating, but i can't assign the "ID" value to the "leveL' portion, so that when I click on the node I can open up that info pretaining to that level (that is in the database) in say another form, or a datagrid.

Is there away to assign an "ID" or a value that is hidden, and that I can use? sort of like databinding a listview?

This is basically how i fill the tree view..

Private void FillMyTreeView()
{
      ProjectInfo.ProjectInfoPD.GetAllProjectInfo(out ProjectArray);
       
      // Suppress repainting the TreeView until all the objects have been created.
      trvProjectSelect.BeginUpdate();
      
      // Clear the TreeView each time the method is called.
      trvProjectSelect.Nodes.Clear();
            
      // Add a root TreeNode for each Customer object in the ArrayList.
      foreach(ProjectInfo.ProjectInfoPD project in ProjectArray)
      {
            trvProjectSelect.Nodes.Add(new TreeNode(project.GetProjectName()));
         
            //trvProjectSelect.Nodes[ProjectArray.IndexOf(project)].ImageIndex = 1;

            BusinessLayer.Global.aNewProject = project;
            PanelControlSheetPD.GetAllPanelControlInfo(out PanelArray);
            
            // Add a child treenode for each Order object in the current Customer object.
            foreach(PanelControlSheetPD panel in PanelArray)
            {
                  trvProjectSelect.Nodes[ProjectArray.IndexOf(project)].Nodes.Add(
                  new TreeNode(panel.GetLevel() + " - " + panel.GetSubProject() + " - " + panel.GetLot()));
                  
                  trvProjectSelect.Nodes[ProjectArray.IndexOf(project)].Nodes[PanelArray.IndexOf(panel)].ImageIndex = 2;
                  trvProjectSelect.Nodes[ProjectArray.IndexOf(project)].Nodes[PanelArray.IndexOf(panel)].SelectedImageIndex = 2;
            }
      }
                  
      // Begin repainting the TreeView.
      trvProjectSelect.EndUpdate();
}


Thanks in advance...

Use the 'Tag' property of the TreeNode.  This assumes it's an int:

   TreeNode tn = new TreeNode(....);
   tn.Tag = <ID>; // get ID value from ???
   trvProjectSelect.Nodes[ProjectArray.IndexOf(project)].Nodes.Add(tn);

Then, when you need it back:

   int ID = (int)tn.Tag; // Where tn is chosen by whatever mechanism you are using
