Custom Column Color changes text color in ListView

Hi,

I am trying to have a custom header color in a listview. I have found a piece of code that does this, however it overrides the ForeColor color.

This is the code:
 Private Sub listView1_DrawColumnHeader(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DrawListViewColumnHeaderEventArgs) Handles ListView1.DrawColumnHeader

        Dim strFormat As New StringFormat()
        e.Header.TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment.Center
        e.DrawBackground()
        e.Graphics.FillRectangle(Brushes.Black, e.Bounds)
        
        Dim headerFont As New Font("Arial", 8, FontStyle.Bold)
        e.Graphics.DrawString(e.Header.Text, headerFont, Brushes.White, e.Bounds, strFormat)
    End Sub

Open in new window


Is there anywhere I can set the forecolor inside that function for the entire listview? Or is this code pretty crap?

Thanks

I have looked at this already, IT doesnt seem to work properly. I have tried modifying it but its just not working. I am trying to have a black background on the form, black table and black headers with white text.

That code wont let me change the column text color, and it also puts in place a white bar seperating the columns

You have to delete your previous Listview and drag the new one from toolbox...
after you drag the custom control into your from try check the listview properties OwnerDraw=True
Also Form The Class You might change even the fore color.....
