    Hello Jack,

    I don't have the older version to try, but this seems to work fine in the latest version. The RadTreeView has been overhauled by the way in Q1 2011 and is now much faster and more flexible.

    Here is a very brief sample:

    Designer File
    partial class Form1
        /// <summary>
        /// Required designer variable.
        /// </summary>
        private System.ComponentModel.IContainer components;
        /// <summary>
        /// Clean up any resources being used.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="disposing">true if managed resources should be disposed; otherwise, false.</param>
        protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
            if (disposing && (components != null))
        #region Windows Form Designer generated code
        /// <summary>
        /// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
        /// the contents of this method with the code editor.
        /// </summary>
        private void InitializeComponent()
            Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode radTreeNode1 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode();
            Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode radTreeNode2 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode();
            Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode radTreeNode3 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode();
            Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode radTreeNode4 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode();
            Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode radTreeNode5 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode();
            Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode radTreeNode6 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode();
            Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode radTreeNode7 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode();
            Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode radTreeNode8 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode();
            this.radTreeView1 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeView();
            // radTreeView1
            this.radTreeView1.BackColor = System.Drawing.SystemColors.Control;
            this.radTreeView1.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Default;
            this.radTreeView1.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Fill;
            this.radTreeView1.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("Segoe UI", 8.25F);
            this.radTreeView1.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Black;
            this.radTreeView1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
            this.radTreeView1.Name = "radTreeView1";
            radTreeNode1.Expanded = true;
            radTreeNode1.Name = "Node1";
            radTreeNode2.Name = "Node5";
            radTreeNode2.Text = "Node5";
            radTreeNode1.Nodes.AddRange(new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode[] {
            radTreeNode1.Text = "Node1";
            radTreeNode3.Expanded = true;
            radTreeNode3.Name = "Node2";
            radTreeNode4.Name = "Node6";
            radTreeNode4.Text = "Node6";
            radTreeNode3.Nodes.AddRange(new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode[] {
            radTreeNode3.Text = "Node2";
            radTreeNode5.Expanded = true;
            radTreeNode5.Name = "Node3";
            radTreeNode6.Name = "Node7";
            radTreeNode6.Text = "Node7";
            radTreeNode5.Nodes.AddRange(new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode[] {
            radTreeNode5.Text = "Node3";
            radTreeNode7.Expanded = true;
            radTreeNode7.Name = "Node4";
            radTreeNode8.Name = "Node8";
            radTreeNode8.Text = "Node8";
            radTreeNode7.Nodes.AddRange(new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode[] {
            radTreeNode7.Text = "Node4";
            this.radTreeView1.Nodes.AddRange(new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeNode[] {
            this.radTreeView1.RightToLeft = System.Windows.Forms.RightToLeft.No;
            this.radTreeView1.RootElement.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Black;
            this.radTreeView1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(284, 337);
            this.radTreeView1.TabIndex = 0;
            this.radTreeView1.Text = "radTreeView1";
            // Form1
            this.AutoScaleDimensions = new System.Drawing.SizeF(6F, 13F);
            this.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Font;
            this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(284, 337);
            this.Name = "Form1";
            this.Text = "Form1";
        private Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeView radTreeView1;

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using Telerik.WinControls.UI;
        public partial class Form1 : Form
            public Form1()
                this.radTreeView1.MultiSelect = true;
            private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

    If you find that this doesn't work for you, I'd advise to upgrade to the latest version. Besides the radTreeView there are many other enhancements that I'm sure you will fin of benefit.
    Hope that helps
