I have created a ListView, with all the subitem enable user to key in data. The textbox name is EditBox.

And I want it to be when user press enter key, it will move the cursor to next subitem, and when reach the last subitem and user press enter, it will move cursor to the next first subitem.

For example as below:
Location      temperature    pH      total iron    hazen
A1
A2
A3
A4
A5
A6.....All together 50 rows

The location cannot keyin. And the field for temperature, pH, total iron and hazen can be key in by user. When user key in temperature for A1, and press enter, it will move focus to pH for A1. When user key in hazen for A1, and press enter, it will move focus to temperature for A2.

Can anybody help me on this. Expert, please help me.

Create a keypress event on listview object.

Check if the key pressed was an enter button - and increment selectedindex property. Check if it reaches the end of the list and in that case reset the selectedindex to 0.

how did you implement editable listview?
since it is not built in functionality in .net listview, you probably customized your control.
if you used floating editbox controls (like in this post http://www.csharphelp.com/2006/10/c-editable-listview/)
then you already have a keypress event handler of the editbox control.
so all u need is to check subItemSelected id.

Hi,

In ListView, Selected SubItem can be identified by X and Y co-ordinates i.e. Location where Mouse is clicked.

Location cannot be identified with KeyPress Events...

So, it is difficult to find selected Item when particular Key is pressed ...

That's why, I think so, you cannot move to next SubItem when user presses Enter Key.

deepaklakkad,

So it is not convenient to use ListView, right? For DataGridView, can you give me a sample code for this? I really need your help.
