TreeView DoubleClick: Change Behavior

I need to change the behavior when I double-click on a node in tree view.

When a user double-clicks on any node in the tree, that element is added to a list.

Whatever the state of the node is before the double-click I want that to remain the same after the double-click.  So if the node is expanded I want it to stay expanded and if the node is collapsed I want it to stay collapsed.

How do I do this?

Currently my code adds the element to the list but the state of the node changes which is a bit confusing to the user.

Computron has provided a good suggestion: subclass. However, you should understand the problems that can arise from subclassing such as: It makes it extremly difficult to debug your applications. Perhaps you should consider a more robust tree view control. Such as one from VBAccelerator.
