Custome Tree View Node crashes on .Clone()


I have a 2003 app,

On SortNode.clone the app throws this exception :

System.MissingMethodException - No parameterless constructor defined for this object.

SortNode is a custom control which inherits System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode, nothing fancy in it just a load of extra integer properties specific to the app.

Im totally lost on how to get this to work; do I need to create an override constructor? if so how as iv never done this before,

Do you have a Sub New (default constructor)?

   Public Sub New(ByVal strText As String)

Sorted, added additional sub new of

    Public Sub New()

    End Sub

And it now works,
