Have you tried:
     lv.Items[index].Selected = true;

where index is the index of the item to select

Hi, to set the selected item you have to set the Selected property of that ListViewItem to true but also then call the Select() method of the ListView, otherwise the selection doesnt occur, so you need something like:

listView1.Items[index].Selected = true;
listView1.SelectedIndex = 0; works also.
