Listview Items and scrolling issues when promoting and demoting items.

Hi

I have a problem I do not know how to solve. I have a couple of buttons where a user selecets items in a listview and clicks a button causing item to either promote or demote in the listview by one position per click. If the amount of items exceeds the listview height then a  vertical scrollbar is present, and herein lies the problem.

If the user, for example, promotes an item near the bottom of the listview, and it moves up far enough the user can no longer see it unless they manually scroll to it. Is there anyway to make sure that the selected item always stays in view no matter how many items are in the listview?

Thanks

PS I have a similar question concerning scrolling issues at  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/Visual_Basic.NET/Q_22479629.html

===============================================
PROMOTE CODE:

        If lstMenu.SelectedIndices.Count = 0 Then
            Beep()
            Exit Sub
        End If

        Dim lvi As ListViewItem = lstMenu.Items(lstMenu.SelectedIndices(0))
        Dim inx As Integer
        Dim temp As Integer
        temp = lstMenu.Items.IndexOf(lvi)
        If temp = 0 Then
            Beep()
            Exit Sub
        End If
        inx = temp - 1

        Dim x As Integer = (lstMenu.SelectedIndices.Count - 1)
        While x >= 0
            lstMenu.Items.RemoveAt(lstMenu.SelectedIndices(x))
            System.Math.Max(System.Threading.Interlocked.Decrement(x), x + 1)
        End While
        Beep()
        lstMenu.Items.Insert(inx, lvi)
=========================================

DEMOTE CODE:

        If lstMenu.SelectedIndices.Count = 0 Then
            Beep()
            Exit Sub
        End If

        Dim lvi As ListViewItem = lstMenu.Items(lstMenu.SelectedIndices(0))
        Dim inx As Integer
        Dim temp As Integer
        Dim Y As Integer
        temp = lstMenu.Items.IndexOf(lvi)
        Y = lstMenu.Items.Count
        If temp = Y - 1 Then
            Beep()
            Exit Sub
        End If
        inx = temp + 1

        Dim x As Integer = (lstMenu.SelectedIndices.Count - 1)
        While x >= 0
            lstMenu.Items.RemoveAt(lstMenu.SelectedIndices(x))
            System.Math.Max(System.Threading.Interlocked.Decrement(x), x + 1)
        End While
        Beep()
        lstMenu.Items.Insert(inx, lvi)
