Listview View Troubles

Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I am having a problem with a listview on two different tabs.  The information is being added at run time so all the collections for items and such are blank.  I would like the information to stay in a single column, much like a listbox, with just a scrollbar on the right side shown as needed.  I have one control that is doing that correctly, but I have another control that seems to have all the same attributes, but groups the information into two columns with scrollbars on the right and the bottom of the control.  I have compared all the property attributes between them and I can't seem to put my finger on where the difference might be.

This is in visual basic 2008.  the listview control are the standard systems.windows.forms.listview objects.  the picture shows the control on the left that is incorrect, and the one on the right is working as intended.

I understand how this is working, what I don't understand is why my other control is working correctly with smallicons as the view attribute . . . . Guess i will just set them both the detail and be done with it.  Thanks for the information.
