SYMPTOMS

The TreeView Control does not paint correctly when the Enabled Property is set to False. When the TreeView Enabled Property is set to False, the "text areas" for each visible node should be painted in a highlight color. Instead, the "text areas" are painted with one color and the lines leading to the "text areas" are painted a different shade.
