WinControls.ListView.Components - Components only for those of you who don't want to mess around
WinControls.TreeListView - Source Code for the control
WinControls.TreeListViewSample - Sample project using the new control
I actually started this code about four years ago when I needed a
TreeListView combination control for a project I was working on. I soon discovered Jon Rista's article (listed below) here on CodeProject and I was off and running. I felt I could build upon his initial idea and with a little help from what others have written (also listed below) and my own ideas, I started it. Unfortunately, the project I was on folded but not the control itself. I continued the work and have been working on it here and there and now have finally gotten around to putting it on CodeProject.
I hope you all find this control useful. Invariably there will be issues, errors or better ways to do things when coding is involved. I am always open to new ideas and designs on my code so don't be afraid to let me know about it. If anyone has any issues, ideas or critiques you can post on the message board and hopefully I'll get to it ASAP.

- You may have to remove the source control bindings and files from the code.
- The solutions have been ported over to Visual Studio 2008. However, the target framework is the .NET 2.0 Framework so you could port the code back to Visual Studio 2005 with no problems if necessary.
- Extract the sample project to the same directory as the source project as the sample project references the source project. Otherwise, you will have to re-reference the source project.
