Hi,

I have this:

But i get the errors at line 7:
->The best overloaded method match for 'System.Windows.Forms.TreeNodeCollection.Add(string, string)' has some invalid arguments
->Argument 1: cannot convert from 'System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode' to 'string'      

Who can help me?

P      
string NewText = "";
            if (InputBox.Show("New Folder", "Folder Name", ref NewText, validation) == DialogResult.OK)
            {
                TreeNode n = new TreeNode();
               // MessageBox.Show(NewText);
                TreeNode n2 = tvNotes.SelectedNode;
                n.Nodes.Add(n2, NewText);
            }

Try
n.Nodes.Add(n2.ToString(), NewText);
or
n.Nodes.Add(Convert.ToString(n2), NewText);
or
n.Nodes.Add(n2.Text, NewText);

Or if you want to add the node itself then
n.Nodes.Add(n2);

I have this now, its error free but it does not work:


            string NewText = "";
            if (InputBox.Show("New Folder", "Folder Name", ref NewText, validation) == DialogResult.OK)
            {
                TreeNode n = new TreeNode();
                TreeNode n2 = tvNotes.SelectedNode;
                n.Nodes.Add(n2.Text, NewText);
            }

Do you know perhaps why?

You want to add a new node to the selected node. At the moment you're creating a new node (that isn't part of the tree) and adding to it.

You want to be doing something like:
TreeNode n2 = tvNotes.SelectedNode;
n2.Nodes.Add(NewText);
