You should place a timer in your form and check periodically for folder changes.

When you determine that a change has happened, then update the TreeView.

Thanks for your reply.The folder is added programmatically so I need to refresh the treeview as son as the folder is added.
How to refresh the treeview any suggestions?
Since you are creating programmatically the new folder, then you know exactly when and where to add the new node.

Assuming that you have built the treeview, then you know how to navigate in the nodes and find the folder that the new folder was created in. So, if you create a new folder in c:\Temp named Myfolder, you should do this:

dim nd as TreeNode = TreeView1.Nodes.Find([The Name of the c:\Temp Node], true)
nd.nodes.add ("myForlder")

The only thing to watch here is to set the name of each node when you create them, in a way that you will be able to find them later.

I get this error
Error 13 Value of type '1-dimensional array of System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode' cannot be converted to 'System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode'.
Sorry, my fault.

TreeView1.Nodes.Find returns an array, so we want to get the first item.
So replace:
dim nd as TreeNode = TreeView1.Nodes.Find([The Name of the c:\Temp Node], true)
dim nd as TreeNode = TreeView1.Nodes.Find([The Name of the c:\Temp Node], true)(0)
