Need to bold selected node in Windows Forms TreeView control

I have a Windows Forms project using Visual Studio 2010 with c# and .Net 4.,

When selecting a node on a TreeView control I want the text to be bold.  Similarly when another node is selected the newly selected node should have its text in bold while the previous node is no longer in bold.

This looks like it would work but in the end I created a custom control inheriting from TreeView and overrode the after select event as follows:

 
protected override void OnAfterSelect(TreeViewEventArgs e)
        {
            if (lastSelectedNode != null)
                lastSelectedNode.NodeFont = new Font(this.Font, FontStyle.Regular);

            if (SelectedNode != null)
                SelectedNode.NodeFont = new Font(this.Font, FontStyle.Bold);

            SelectedNode.Text = SelectedNode.Text; //Hack due to node not displaying all text correctly
            lastSelectedNode = SelectedNode;

            base.OnAfterSelect(e);
        }

Open in new window

Good advice for drawing but for simple bold I think a custom control was more straight forward.  \
