Hi,
I'm trying to put an Item into a TListView at certain coordinates X and Y given by a OnDragDrop event.
I'm using this piece of code for it :
procedure TForm1.ListView1DragDrop(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer);
var ListItem: TListItem;
begin
  ListItem := ListView1.Items.Add;
  ListItem.Caption := TSpeedButton(Source).caption;
  ListItem.Top:=Y;
  ListItem.Left:=X;
End;
The problem now is that the caption alwas gets on top or on the left of my TListView. I'v tried to set IconsOptions.AutoArange to False or True, it won't matter..

Anyone that can help me ??

Thx

Pieter

I think set AutoArrange to false only takes effects when it is in LargeIcons, in other status of listview, the icon will be at top-left at anytime.

Yes, dwwang is right. But I think it should work in "vsIcon" and in "vsSmallIcon"...

nope, sorry, i tried both icons and smallicons style (without an actual icon, just a caption). It won't work...
I've downloaded a component called ExtListView which is an extended listview. this might work....

Hi, I think the solution is to use SetPosition, see Delphi's help below:

Positions the list item in its list view control.

procedure SetPosition(const Value: TPoint);

Description

Call SetPosition to move the list item to a specified position. The Value parameter specifies the desired coordinates of the upper-left corner of the list item.

Note:      The list view control must have its ViewStyle property set to either vsIcon or vsSmallIcon.
