TTreeView.Images, how to use

I added two bitmaps to the Images property of a TreeView. However, it appears that only even values of TTreeNode.ImageIndex / SelectedIndex make sense. What are the odd values good for. Maybe I'm completely wrong and it works just by coincidence?

Set ImageIndex property of every tree node to a image from the ImageList (zero based, i.e 0 for the first image, etc.). This image will apear when the node is not selected.

Set SelectedIndex property of every tree node to the same value as ImageIndex if you want to keep that image when any node becomes selected.

You may want one image for the selected node (i.e. a node has one image when it's not selected and another when it is selected). Usually the first image in the list (index 0) is that image and you don't have to explicitly set SelectedIndex in that case.
