I have a form that contains a ListView set to Detail view type. And when the form loads it runs the following code:

OdbcConnection conn = new OdbcConnection ("DSN=Data");
                        conn.Open();
                        OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand("SELECT Field1, Field2 FROM Table1",conn);

                        OdbcDataReader data= cmd.ExecuteReader();
                        lstViewUsers.Clear();
                   
                        while(data.Read()){
                              ListViewItem lvi=lstViewUsers.Items.Add(data.GetString(0));
                                OdbcConnection conn2 = new OdbcConnection("DSN=Data");
                                conn2.Open();
                                OdbcCommand cmd2=new OdbcCommand("SELECT Field1, Field2 Field3 FROM Table2 WHERE Field1 = '"+data.GetString(0)+"';",conn2);                                OdbcDataReader data2 = cmd2.ExecuteReader();

                                if(data2.HasRows){
                                      data2.Read();
                                      lvi.SubItems.Add(data2.GetString(0));
                                      lvi.SubItems.Add(data2.GetDate(1).ToString("g"));
                                      lvi.SubItems.Add(data2.GetDate(2).ToString("g"));
                                }
                                else {
                                      lvi.SubItems.Add("");
                                        lvi.SubItems.Add("");
                                        lvi.SubItems.Add("");
                                }
                                data2.Close();
                                conn2.Close();
                                if(data.GetBoolean(1))
                                      lvi.SubItems.Add("Yes");
                                else
                                      lvi.SubItems.Add("No");
                  }

                        data.Close();
                        conn.Close();

And as a result somehow the ListView Does not repaint itself (it also happened Else where in the program but the solution should be the same.

If you minimize your app, and then restore it, does the listview repaint itself correctly?

Try putting in a call to listViewUsers.Update(); - ideally, start your function with
listViewUsers.BeginUpdate();  and end with listViewUsers.EndUpdate();

See if this works

listViewUsers.Refresh() may work as well.

using
lstViewUsers.Items.Clear();
lstViewUsers.Columns.Clear();

before you send any items to listview.

i suggest you creat a method that used to display dataset in listview and then call this method whenever you need.

When I minimiz then come back all the headings are greyed out and there are no items in the list.

I put the headers in during design time so I don't want to clear the Headers

If you noticed I had the code:

lstViewUsers.Clear();

I changed this to:

lstViewUsers.Items.Clear();

And it displays what it should.

Thanks
