A Better Way to Validate a Node Checkbox in a Treeview

You cannot change the value of a nodes checkbox in the event treeview_NodeCheck as explained in this tip. Besides that, the event doesn't fire at all when clicking a nodes checkbox and dragging the mouse out of the treeview before releasing your mousebutton.

The following code is a decent work-around:

Private Sub treeview_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, x As Single, y As Single)
    Dim objNode As MSComctlLib.Node
    Set objNode = treeview.HitTest(x, y)
    If Not objNode Is Nothing Then Set treeview.SelectedItem = objNode
End Sub

Private Sub treeview_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, x As Single, y As Single)
    'Do whatever validation you want on treeview.SelectedItem
    'You might want to check here for a not set SelectedItem
End Sub
