If I recall correctly, you've got to add an ImageList to the form, then add the Images to that ImageList (with the correct "index" or "key" values), and then assign that ImageList to the Treeview.

This code snippet might help:

have been through the article and have an idea that the image list needs to be bound to the project
so i am guessing that the images need to be set up in the image list before i move forward so that i can use
For i = 1 To 6
        TreeImages.ListImages.Add , , TreeImage(i).Picture
    Next i
to set up the images
but when i try to add a image to the image list manually , image list is marked to None ...and cannot seen to set it here and cannot seem to add any pictures to the list help is not available and cannot seem to find any good resources on the subject will keep looking but any ideas

You must use an ImageList control, which is a separate control from the Treeview. You would add images to that control, then add the entire ImageList control to the Treeview. How you setup and use the INdex and Key properties of the ImageList control, in conjunction with the Tab nodes and how you build them, determines which image shows up on a specific Node.

It's been a while since I've worked with the Microsoft treeview control. I long ago stopped using it, and use a 3rd party control (from Mabry, who unfortuantely is no longer in business).
