Anybody knows how to select the first top item displayed on a listview once sorted by alpha without having to loop through all the items and compare again?

note: ListView1.Items(0).Selected won't work here...

Why won't that line of code work?  I just tried it, and it seemed to do the job.  I started by adding a list of items into the ListView.  Then sorting them when the column header was clicked, like this:

    private void listView1_ColumnClick(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.ColumnClickEventArgs e)
    {
        listView1.Sorting = SortOrder.Ascending;
        listView1.Items[0].Selected = true;
    }

The first item in the sorted list was selected...

A typical idiot's question: I was selecting the item before sorting the listview.
