HI All,

I'm trying to lock the widths of a listview in vb.net 2005. There is no setting on the control for this.

How can I achieve this?

Thanks,
Sean

If you want to lock the widths you should use a datagrid.

Agreed a datagrid is often better but listviews have their benefits (to the users expectations at least)....

Either way this should work... Please delete the appropriate chunk as required.

    Private Sub ListView1_ColumnWidthChanging(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.ColumnWidthChangingEventArgs) Handles ListView1.ColumnWidthChanging
       
        ''either for single column locking
        Select Case e.ColumnIndex
            Case 0, 1 'ie if its the first or second column
                e.Cancel = True  'abort the event
        End Select

        'or to just prevent all resizing.
        e.Cancel = True

    End Sub

This doesn't work for me.  It prevents the viewing of the resizing, but in the end the colulmn still gets resized to any width the user wants.
