Is there an easy way to display graphics in a listView to the left of the items when it is in details mode?  I know there are a lot of third party ones out there, but I don't want to use any of them.  Is there a way to do this easily using the standard ListView?

Review the SmallImageList property of the ListView class. There is also an example where you can see how to use it.

This should do it for ya.

1) Establish an ImageList
 
  ImageList imageList = new ImageList();
  imageList.Images.Add( new Icon(@"c:\path\to\icon1") );
  imageList.Images.Add( new Icon(@"c:\path\to\icon2") );
  imageList.Images.Add( new Icon(@"c:\path\to\icon3") );


2) Attach the imagelist to your ListView
  listView.SmallImageList = imageList;

3) Add your list view items
  ListViewItem item1 = listView.Items.Add("item1");
  ListViewItem item1 = listView.Items.Add("item1");
  ListViewItem item1 = listView.Items.Add("item1");

4) Assign images to them by their insert index order first being 0 and 2nd being 1 and so forth.
  item1.ImageIndex = 0;
  item1.ImageIndex = 1;
  item1.ImageIndex = 2;

5) TA-DA!

You will have to work this into your program as you see fit but I hope this example is clear and easy to understand,
Jerry

TYPE-O, Step 3 and 4 have TYPE-O's :)  I forgot to make the ListViewItem's seperate I kept using item1 over and over :)  All better now.

3) Add your list view items
  ListViewItem item1 = listView.Items.Add("item1");
  ListViewItem item2 = listView.Items.Add("item2");
  ListViewItem item3 = listView.Items.Add("item3");

4) Assign images to them by their insert index order first being 0 and 2nd being 1 and so forth.
  item1.ImageIndex = 0;
  item2.ImageIndex = 1;
  item3.ImageIndex = 2;

Thanks,
Jerry
