Given certain conditions, I want to change the background colour of an item I have just added to a listview, but I cannot see how to get the index of the added item.

thanks,
Graham

When you do the Add to the Items, a ListViewItem is returned to you.  You can check the Index property of the returned item, though it's not necessary since you already have the item in hand.

    System.Windows.Forms.ListViewItem item = listView1.Items.Add("New Item");
    // index of added item is 'item.Index'
