I have an app with a ListView that is set to Details and has several columns. The ListView has a ContextMenu that I want users to be able to use to right click anywhere on the ListView and then select which way they would like the column they clicked on to be aligned. I am using the following code to align the columns:

lstvwColumns.Columns(3).TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment.Left

The problem I am having is how to get the above code to know which column to align depending on where on the ListView they user has clicked. I can find out which row but I don't know how to find out which column.
Can anyone help?
Thanks.

This is the only way as far as I know

You would have to trap the mouse position in the mousedown event, store it in form level x,y variables, and refer to those variables in the itemclick event. You can add up the lvw.Left plus all the column widths until you exceed the x value, then you know you're on the right column.

BTW A better approach might be to use a right click popup menu which allows the user to align left, center, align right ?? But you'd still need to identify the column
