Hi, We use listView in our vb.net project (VB 2005). up until now we've been Referencing the item and sub item by index.  We'd like to change that and Reference item by it's column name.
for example:
it we have four columns in our list. i
Column1, Column2,Column3,Column4

current Code
        For i As Integer = 0 To listView1.Items.Count - 1
            Console.WriteLine(listView1.Items(i).SubItems(1).Text)
        Next

We'd like to use listView1.Items(i).SubItems("Column1").Text

I can't figure out how to do this currently, because it's not working right now.

What is the issue with VB.net? My guess is it is a syntax change that needs to be made:

listView1.Columns("NameKey").Index

Here, I figured it out on my own. too bad, this isn't well documented in books online.

Console.WriteLine(listView1.Items(i).SubItems(listView1.Columns.IndexOfKey("column1")).Text)
0

Since your response was kind of partial. I'll accept it as the solution.
