Hi

I think this will not be possible in ListView

My suggestion is use DataGridView if you are binding it with database

How are you binding ListView ?
- Is it from database (ListView.DataSource = ds) OR
- Creating at runtime ?

Hey guys thanks for your help.

I've found the solution by setting the "ownerdraw" setting to true.
