How do I keep a ListView's text formatting from changing?

On my form, I have a button that when clicked opens up a log file in notepad.  When this happens, if I go back to my form where the ListView is located, all of the text formatting has been reset to just normal basic text.  However, if I highlight any row or all rows, the formatting returns to the way I want it.  Is there a way to keep this from never changing so that it doesn't have to be selected in order to go back to the way I put it?

That sounds like you might have some other code that is resetting the formatting, since that is basic formatting that shouldn't be lost.

How are you formatting the text?  What .NET version are you using?

I'm formatting the text just using Fonts in the C# code (bold, colors, etc.), and I believe I'm using .NET 2.0 in Visual Studio 2005...

Is this an owner-drawn ListView, or are you just using standard formatting in code?  I am looking for the right context to understand your problem.  A little code might help to explain your problem...

I'm just using the standard Windows ListView, and here is a few lines of the code I'm using to adjust the font information:

Font errorFont = new Font(FontFamily.GenericSansSerif, (float)8.25, FontStyle.Regular);
ListViewItem item = lvLog.Items.Find(e.TreeItem, false)[0];
int i = item.Index;
item.Text = item.Text.Replace("Processing", "Error(s)");
ListViewItem errorItem = lvLog.Items.Insert((i + 1), "          " + e.FileLog);
errorItem.Font = errorFont;
errorItem.ForeColor = Color.Red;

I appreciate the info LearnedOne, thanks so much, I'll just dig through the code and find out where I'm changing any focus and possibly resetting the formatting.

If that code that you showed me before is what you are using to format, I would suggest taking that code out, and creating a simple test project/form, to see that the formatting shouldn't be getting lost.
