This tip is used to fix a workaround for a bug in double click on checkbox


This tip is used for a workaround for this link:


When I try to migrate a VB6 treeview project to VB.NET, I faced one of the above mentioned issues and also problem for double click to expand and collapse too. To fix these issues, I wrote the following code.

Using the Code

The code is already posted by SwissMatt. I am just implementing some more things to enable the doubleclick event in the Treeview while clicking on the checkbox.

Public Class MyTreeView
    Inherits TreeView

    Protected Overrides Sub WndProc(ByRef m As Message)
        ' Suppress WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK
        If (m.Msg = &H203) Then
            Dim Hitpoint As Point = New Point(CInt(m.LParam))
            Dim tvhti As TreeViewHitTestInfo = HitTest(Hitpoint)
            If tvhti IsNot Nothing AndAlso tvhti.Location = TreeViewHitTestLocations.StateImage Then
                Me.SelectedNode = tvhti.Node
                Dim tvs As New TreeNodeMouseClickEventArgs_
                (Me.SelectedNode, Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left, 2, Hitpoint.X, Hitpoint.Y)
                Dim mvs As New MouseEventArgs(Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left, 2, Hitpoint.X, Hitpoint.Y, 0)
                OnDoubleClick(New EventArgs)
                If tvhti.Node.IsExpanded Then
                End If
                m.Result = IntPtr.Zero
            End If
        End If
    End Sub
End Class

Points of Interest

Implementing double click on the Treeview Checkbox is much harder. Moreover, the expand and collapse behaviour is my idea.
