I was wondering if there was a multi-line listview control for vb.net similar to the one for C++ at the following link:  http://www.codeproject.com/miscctrl/reportctrl.asp

If you know the answer, hey...it's an easy 500 points! :-D

I need to know ASAP.  Thanks :).

The link doesn't work.

Set the listview property View to Details. I think that's what your asking.

I tried again and got it to work =/

Try what I said:  Set the listview property View to Details.

I tried setting the listview's View property to Details, but it only allows me to put the data into columns.

What I want to do is have the data in columns, and then right below it have information about the data.  For example, if I have the following fields:

Name
Occupation
Company
Address (multiple lines)

I would like each list item to look like the following (similar to the image on the link above):

Name    Occupation    Company
   Address


If you have any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Another example of what I am looking for is within the Firefox browser.  If you go to "Tools", and click "Extensions", that is pretty much the type of control I am looking for.

A treeview would allow you to format things the way you want:

Name    Occupation    Company
   Address

But each line would have a +/- box to expand/contract

It would, but I'm writing this app for the not-so computer savvy person, and I don't want them to get confused by the +/- box (sometimes I wonder how they can turn on the computer at all....lol)

I just found a control that will do exactly what I want:   http://www.fpoint.com/products/list/list.aspx   But I just can't justify paying $245 for a control that I will use only once or twice.

If you or anyone can find a control that can do what I need it to do, and it's open source/low cost, please let me know!  Thanks.

Hey MajinLoki, thanks for all of your help, but I ended up designing a control myself.  It's not 100% what I wanted, but it works :).

Since you did help me out a bit with your suggestions (and since I'm in a generous mood), I'm giving you the points :).
