I am using ArcObjects 10.1 (.NET) to customize ArcCatalog: adding new nodes in catalog tree like in the Esri's example. But when I add new child node to already expanded parent, it doesn't show up in tree. Actually, catalog tree node never updates again after being expanded.

Any solutions?

Tried this solution, but it doesn't work.

Arccatalog tree doesn't refresh on it's own. Right click on the added tree item and select refresh.

My custom tree nodes don't have context menus. But it is possible to force refresh by pressing F5 on the node (checked in debug). After that tree is not refreshed, but on the tab "Contents" everything is ok. See my screenshots and code in the ArcGIS forum post. –  Ilya Solovyev Mar 25 '13 at 4:20
