Hi. I use the following code to draw a line between two points on a TreeView. What code would I use to clear this line

    Sub oDrawLine()

        Dim Gr As Graphics = Me.TreeView_From.CreateGraphics()
        ' Create pen.
        Dim blackPen As New Pen(Color.DarkOrange, 2)

        ' Draw line to screen.
        Gr.DrawLine(blackPen, oFrom_Point, oTo_Point)

    End Sub

You've used CreateGraphics(), which is a temporary drawing surface.  To erase, just Refresh() the Form/TreeView.  If you are not calling that method from the Paint() event then it will be erased for you.

Strange variable name, blackPen, for an orange line, even it is is dark orange :-)

If the line never cross anything else, simply create a DeleteLine method with the same code, but use the TreeView BackColor instead of the DarkOrange.
