With VB.NET, adding a button to each node in a treeview

Is it possible to add a button in each node of a treeview next to the text or the display picture?  This is needed to eliminate the need to right click and display a menu or some other function.

you can add a checkbox to your treeview nodes instead of button which comes as a property of .net treeview control and wontbe much of a hastle either.

now based upon the selection/de-selection of these check boxes you can call any method you like.

if you wish i can also guide with some code to help you out on this.

I have my treeview populated with checkboxes already.  Is there a way to also add a button?
I don't think you can do it, at least in 2003, because I don't see any way to override the paint event in the TreeNode class, which is the only way I could think of doing this.  This would not be a trivial task even if it were doable.
