Selecting a ListView column by name

Hi all,
I have a dynamically populated ListView in my app and I need to be able to specify which column I want to perform changes on. The only problem is that I don't know the columns index number and even if I did it could have changed. The only thing I do know it the column header name. Is there anyway I can specify a column in my code using the column name rather than the index?
Thanks

Hi kiranboi,

Why dont you create a function to loop through the columns and return the index:

public int GetIndexByName( string colName )
{
    foreach( ColumnHeader header in YourListView.Columns )
         {
            if ( header.Text == colName )
            {
               return header.Index;
            }
         }
}

sorry, more correctly:

public int GetIndexByName( string colName )
{
    foreach( ColumnHeader header in lstCustomers.Columns )
    {
       if ( header.Text == colName )
       {
          return header.Index;
       }
    }
    return -1;
}
