I have a List view in my WPF  application . In its first column we are using image to display something. Whenever I increase the width  of that column row size of all the rows also increases. THe image shown inside the cell also grows up. How can i avoid this particular behaviour.

A typical example is attached where when width of the first column is increased row height is also increased. Setting the height of the row is possible but it will have its own sideeffect and can not be used.

Did you try setting the Image size itself?

I have a feeling your first image size is proportionate and when you size the column width, the image height also resizes so maintain the proportions. Since the row height sizes to it's contents, it goes along for the ride. If you could post code, I suspect there is a simple solution.

<Rectangle Width="160" Height="120"
      Stroke="Black"
      StrokeThicknexx="1"
  <Rectangle.Fill>
    <ImageBrush ImageSource="image.jpg" />
  </Rectangle.Fill>
</Rectangle>

You have accurately diagnsed the problem. Though the solution is suggestive but it is simple as well. Set the "stretch" attribute of image element to "None" and the behaviour will be stopped.  
Actually i am new to C# and WPF and i was trying a very wrong approach. "No resizing of image when column with increase happens" (I was trying to trap events)
