VB6,
Listview, Icon mode, set ListView.Picture.

Question 1:
When I drag a Item in listview,
the  ListItem(i).Left and ListItem(i).top can be <0 or very large.
I do not want it <0 or very large.
How can I do that?
How to let the item can only be drag
in the size of ListView.
Question 2:
If the ListView.Picture is larger than
the ListView'size, how to display the
picture in the size of Listview only.

Here are a couple of suggestions that ought to get you on your way :

To restrict dragging to within your control you need to use APIs to limit the cursor movement until the drag is complete. This article should help you with that :

The second part of the question about scaling the picture - create two picture boxes - one (picTarget) the size of the listview, the other the size of the picture itself (picSource). Put your source picture into the second picture box and use the paintpicture method of picSource to copy and scale the image :

picSource.PaintPicture (pictarget.picture,0,0, picSource.scalewidth, picSource.Scaleheight)

Then set Listview1 = picSource.picture.


Hope these point you in the right direction
