In a Tree View control how can I find out how many parents a selected node has?

For example:


Main  (has 0 "parents")
      Main Child  (has 1 "parents")
             Main Grandchild  (has 2 "parents")
                      Main Great Grandchild   (has 3 "parents")
                      Main Great Grandchild   (has 3 "parents")
                                Main Great Great Grandchild   (has 4 "parents")

Yes..

tvMain.PathSeparator="\t"; // Set this to something which doesn't occur in any of your nodes.

TreeNode TN=MySelection;
Parents=TN.FullPath.Length-TN.FullPath.Replace("\t","").Length;
