# GetNodeRelationship - Check if two nodes are relatives

``````' Returns a value >0 if Node1 is a parent (or grandparent) of Node2
' Returns a value <0 if Node1 is a child (or grandchild) of Node2
'   in both cases the number reflects the number of levels
'   between the two nodes
' Returns 0 if the two Nodes are the same or
'   if they belong to different subtrees

Function GetNodeRelationship(ByVal Node1 As Node, _
ByVal Node2 As Node) As Integer

If Node1 Is Node2 Then
' this is the simplest case
Exit Function
ElseIf Len(Node1.FullPath) > Len(Node2.FullPath) Then
' if the two nodes belong to the same subtree, then
' Node1 is a (grand)child of Node2
If InStr(Node1.FullPath, Node2.FullPath) = 1 Then
' do the loop only if the two nodes appear to
' belong to the same subtree
' check that the relationship really exists
Do Until (Node1.Parent Is Nothing)
Set Node1 = Node1.Parent
GetNodeRelationship = GetNodeRelationship + 1
If Node1 Is Node2 Then Exit Function
Loop
End If
