Hi All,

I need to select a listviewitem subitem by clicking/double-clicking on it.

I have a listview with a number of columns in it, and I need to be able to perform a function etc by clicking a subitem.

I like the layout options that the listview gives e.g. Groups, Tiles or I would have used a grid control.

Thanks

You can do this to check what column/subitem was clicked. It just have to adapt it to your needs.

        Dim colstart As Integer = 0
        Dim colend As Integer = 0
        Dim x As Integer

        For x = 0 To (ListView1.Columns.Count - 1)
            colend = colend + ListView1.Columns(x).Width
            If colstart <= e.X And e.X <= colend Then
                Label1.Text = "Column clicked: " & x + 1
                Exit For
            End If
            colstart = colstart + ListView1.Columns(x).Width
        Next

But why don't you use a datagridview ?

Hi jpaulino,

Thanks for the reply. As I mentioned in the Q, I like the layour that the listview gives in terms of creating groups etc. I don't know if this is possible in the datagridview.......

In your reply, how would I determine the item property though...i.e. the selected item?

Thats more difficult to calculate!

If set the listview fullrowselect = true when you right click on the item will select him.

Ok, this sounds more difficult than I thought.

I didn't want to do a full row select as I am displaying different backcolours for the subitems...maybe I will just have to live with the fact that I can't LOL!!!

I'll leave this q up to see if there is any more response
