I have a listview that I created 2 columns with.  I use code to update the listview with items the user has selected.  Here is the code, however I never see anything in the second column mTag is a variable I need in the second column.  Also can you a column to be multiline line item, say column 1 has the description and it takes more the 1 line to write it.

thanks

mInspectionCost = mInspectionCost + CDbl(mTag)
        Dim myGroup As String = tabInspection.SelectedTab.Text
        Dim myObj As New ListViewItem
        'mListArray.Add(New listitem(mgroup, mTag))
        myObj.Text = myGroup & Space(2) & mText
        myObj.SubItems.Add(mTag)

        ListBox1.Items.Add(myGroup & Space(2) & mText & "..." & mTag)
        'ListView1.Items.Add(myGroup & Space(2) & mText & "..." & mTag)
        ListView1.Items.Add(myObj)
        lblTotalCharges.Text = CDbl(lblTotalCharges.Text) + (CDbl(mTag) * CDbl(mQty))
        If mResident = True Then
            lblResiCharges.Text = CDbl(lblResiCharges.Text) + (CDbl(mTag) * CDbl(mQty))
        Else
        End If
        lblTotalCharges.Text = FormatCurrency(lblTotalCharges.Text, 2)
        lblResiCharges.Text = FormatCurrency(lblResiCharges.Text, 2)

The first column is a ListViewItem, the second and others are subitems of the firts column.
Then, something like this is expected to work;

Dim LVI as ListViewItem = myGroup & Space(2) & mText & "..." & mTag)
LVI.Text = myGroup & Space(2) & mText
LVI.SubItems.Add(mTag)

This mean that you can not add subitems before adding the item :)

Dim LVI as ListViewItem =ListBox1.Items.Add(myGroup & Space(2) & mText & "..." & mTag)
LVI.Text = myGroup & Space(2) & mText
LVI.SubItems.Add(mTag)
