Hi,

I have a ListView/ListBox (same style) box in C#, and I want to be able to keep a certain item (I can always identify this item, as it is unique) at a constant position, that is, at the bottom of the list.

I am constantly adding items to the list, so if there is a way to change the position in the list I can work something out from there.

Using Visual C# Express.

Thanks.

You'll have to remove it and re-add it everytime you add another item to the list.

As long as you can identify the item, then you can iterate through it's Items collection.  Then in your code handling the adding of items, you could do something like this (there may need to be some tweaking done to this code):

private void AddItem(string NewItem)
{
            decimal foundID = -1;
            foreach (ListViewItem myItem in this.listView1.Items)
            {
                if (myItem.SubItems[0].Text == "My Unique ID")
                {
                    foundID = myItem.Index;
                }
            }
            if (foundID > -1)
            {
                ListViewItem tmpItem = (ListViewItem)(this.listView1.Items[foundID].Clone());
                this.listView1.Items.RemoveAt(foundID);
                this.listView1.Items.Add(NewItem);
                this.listView1.Items.Add(tmpItem);
            }
}

You can user "ListView.Items.Insert" to add new items at a specific position, instead of using the "Add" method to append an new item at the end of the list.

So, if you always want to insert new items at the first position, and move the other items down, then use somthing like:

ListView1.items.Insert(0, newListViewitem))

Yep, sorry forgot about that, in this case you'd want to do:

            this.listView1.Items.Insert(this.listView1.Items.Count, new ListViewItem(this.textBox1.Text));

Something like that (or supply your own new ListViewItem).
