Synatx Error Instantiating a New Class

I am converting some C# code to VB. I create the class below:
Public Class FileNode
        Inherits TreeNode
        Private _fileInfo As FileInfo
        Private _directoryNode As DirectoryNode

        Public Sub New(ByVal directoryNode As DirectoryNode, ByVal fileInfo As FileInfo)
            MyBase.New(fileInfo.Name)
            Me._directoryNode = directoryNode
            Me._fileInfo = fileInfo

            Me.ImageIndex = 1 'DirectCast(_directoryNode.TreeView, FileSystemTreeView).GetIconImageIndex(_fileInfo.FullName)
            Me.SelectedImageIndex = Me.ImageIndex

            _directoryNode.Nodes.Add(Me)
        End Sub
    End Class

I now call this class from a function (basically building up nodes in  a treeview):

        Public Sub LoadFiles()
            For Each file As FileInfo In _directoryInfo.GetFiles()
                New FileNode(Me, file)
            Next
        End Sub

However, I get a syntax error on the word New (New FileNode(Me, file)). Any ideas how to get around this?

You need to your new class instance to a variable, e.g.:

      Public Sub LoadFiles()
            Dim myFileNode As FileNo
            For Each file As FileInfo In _directoryInfo.GetFiles()
                myFileNode = New FileNode(Me, file)
            Next
        End Sub

Also, I've noticed that you are passing Me as a paramter - the constructor for your FileNode class specifies that the first parameter should be a DirectoryNode object, but passing Me as a parameter will pass across the form or class, or wherever you are calling the function from.
