Hi,

Can anyone please let me know how to search listview items in vb.net. I have a listview whose items are populated with strings. I need to compare the listview items with strings. For every match, I need to get the index of the listview item and select it.

Thanks in advance,
Pratibha

Dim lv As ListViewItem
For Each lv In ListView1.Items
            If lv.Text = "MatchingString" Then
                lv.Selected = True
                ' MsgBox(lv.Index) 'at the end of this loop the ListView1.SelectedIndices will contain all the selected rows in LV
            End If
Next

By putting above mentioned code, we have to pass exact matching string to find, i would like to know is there any method so that we can send partial string so that we could find number of row for partial match

Thanks and regards,
