Trying to get a ListViewItem with a given value

Hi,

I populated the ListView with driverLabel strings.  And now I'd like to get the ListViewItem with a given matching string.  But Items.IndexOf() return -1 even though I know it's been added.  Am I missing anything obvious?

Thanks,
Bob

string driverLabel = driverRun.Driver.DriverLabel;
if ( driverLabel != null && driverLV.Items.Count > 0 )
{
   int driverLabelIndex = driverLV.Items.IndexOf(new ListViewItem(driverLabel));
   if ( driverLabelIndex > -1 && driverLabelIndex < driverLV.Items.Count )
   {
      driverRunsLV.Items[driverRunIndex].Selected = true;
   }
}

Are you trying to select a specific item in the ListView?

string driverLabel = driverRun.Driver.DriverLabel;
if(!String.IsNullOrEmpty(driverLabel)) {
      foreach (ListViewItem item in this.listView1.Items.IndexOf()) {
            if (item.Text == driverLabel) {
                  item.Selected = true;
                  this.listView1.Select();
                  break;
            }
      }
 }

You might want to check my code, I wrote it free hand.

Cheers,

Oops, I already saw a typo, the for loop should be like this:

   foreach (ListViewItem item in this.listView1.Items)

Not

   foreach (ListViewItem item in this.listView1.Items.IndexOf())
