I need a multi-column ListBox alternative to a ListView

I am having formatting problems with the column widths of my ListView

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/C_Sharp/Q_22980955.html

Is there an alternative approach?  Can I make a ListBox have multi-columns?

Even if there just "appear" to be multiple columns, that works for me.

Could I use a fixed width font and format the column name row so that the column names line up with the text in the ListBox items?

Can I use the tab character for this?

Can anyone suggest a work around a ListView? I have three columns of data I'd like to display but DO NOT need to sort the list or access any column of data.  Columns would be purely for appearance to make it easy to read.

thanks,

There are multi-columns listbox implementations with owner-draw feature, but it is an unncessary complex.
and, yes, you can use a fixed font to simulate a multi-column listbox
