When I Click on a treeview I only want a treenode selected if the node was clicked on it's Icon, it's Label, or the plus/minus symbol.

 All Those situations work, however when the treeview is clicked in a Blank Area, the treenode that is on the same Y-axis as where the mouse was clicked becomes the selected node.  How can I prevent that from happening and only have the treenode be the selected node when the Icon, Plus/minus, or label is selected??

I don't suppose setting FullRowSelect = False on the TreeView does it?  It's been a while since I've played extensively with a TreeView in .NET.

If not, you might try using the GetNodeAt() method to find the node at the point where the user clicked, though I'm guessing that would return a node for any locations that also result in selecting that node, so it wouldn't really gain you anything.

You're are right VoteyDisciple.  GetNodeAt() does exactly what I DO NOT want it to do.    

I made a change to my code and when I left click on the treeview it behaves as I want it to, but getNodeAt() does not.  I use getNodeAt to make a node the selected node if it is Right-Clicked.  I did that in my treeview mousedown event.  

Now I need to figure out how to Get the right click working correctly.
