I have a search button that I want to search the first column of a listview box.  Once it finds it, I want that row in the listview box highlighted.  Here's what I got so far which works, but does not highlight.  

intX = 1

Do Until ListView1.SelectedItem = Trim(txtSearchDDA.Text)
    ListView1.SelectedItem = ListView1.ListItems.Item(intX)
    intX = intX + 1

Make sure you have the fullrowselect property set to True and the HideSelection property set to False.

OK, that works.  Is there a way to have it automatically scroll down to the one that is selected?  In other words, if the one that is selected is all the way down the listview box, once it has found it can I have it where it will be shown in the listview box?

Ahh, EnsureVisible property will do that.  Thanks for your help.

Sorry I didn't get back sooner.  EE just sent me 12 emails all at one time, so I didn't know you asked another question.

Glad I could help.

I was working on a PowerPoint add-in the other day and a client asked me "can you implement a feature which processes a chart when it's pasted into a slide from another deck?". It got me wondering how to hook into built-in ribbon events in Office.
