I have a TListView in virtual mode. I set the Selected property to an item outside the current listbox. If U scroll down the list I can see the new item selected ?_but_ how can I get the list box to automatically move it's view on the TCollection down to include the new selected (via code) item.

Thanks, Tom.

try something like this?

ListView1.Items[myIndex].MakeVisible(False);

or

ListView1.TopItem := ListView1.Items[myIndex];

I'm not sure whether the "Items" property works completely, when using virtual mode. I'm using the following function when doing virtual mode:

ListView_EnsureVisible

Hmm... yeah, forgot about that.

Didn't try it myself, but you just *might* get a List Index Out of Bounds error.

So Tom, Madshi is correct, just follow his suggestion and call it this way:

ListView_EnsureVisible(ListView1.Handle, myIndex, False);

and don't forget to add CommCtrl in your uses clause.

(PS: If this works, give the points to Madshi)

The Items stuff might work, too, sometimes it does work even in virtual mode. Just not sure...

It turns out that
ListView1.Items[myIndex].MakeVisible(False);
is a wrap for
ListView_EnsureVisible(ListView1.Handle, myIndex, False);
so both work perfectly :-)
There doesn't seem to be any advantage to using the later.

FYI, ListView1.TopItem is readonly.

The selected index however shows at the bottom of the TListView and I want it toward the top. I want to do

ListView1.Items[myIndex+NumberItemsVisibleInList].MakeVisible(False);

Do ye have any idea how I can get
the number of items visible in the list?

Thanks a million, Tom.
