Hi Luca,

Not sure what you want to say with iter versurs "rows item".
However, there is something that I think does what you want - no reason 
to get angry anyways :-)

-> This contains the selected "rows" = item(s) of the tree view

So, if you want the iter, this is one option:

     // TreeView tv;    -- for example
     TreeIter iter;

     if ( tv.Selection.CountSelectedRows() > 0 )    // make sure 
something is selected ... otherwise you get an exception below
         tv.Model.GetIter( out iter, tv.Selection.GetSelectedRows()[0] 
);    // get the iter of the first selected row - probably the ONLY 
selected row
         // ignore or do something to handle the case that nothing is 

This works in so far, as it gives you the iter of the item that was 
right-clicked if you use it in that context...

Best regards,
