Move a nodewith its subnode up/down in a treeview

Hi,

For example a treeview:

A
B
C
..D
....E
F

I would like to move for example C and its subnode just after A with a click of a button.  I'm already configured for drag and drop so I can change parent, but I just can't figure out how to move higher or lower (personalised sorting)

Thanks,

Martin

Just use

        Dim ND As TreeNode
        ND = TreeView1.Nodes(2) 'Index of Node to Move
        TreeView1.Nodes.RemoveAt(2)
        TreeView1.Nodes.Insert(0, ND) 'Index Where to Move

Works perfectly.

I first tried arif eqbal solution on a blank project and it worked perfectly.  however I haven't been able to make it work in my program (??)  .. always had "argument is not valid value: index".  So I went for Idle Mind solution and it worked.

Your help is greatly appreciated.
