Hi,

I have a methode to create a row in a listview and it works perfect.
But now I would like when a row is created in the listview it must
be selected too.

Who knows the answer and is willing to help me?

Greetings,

Peter
private void tbNewNote_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            frmNote.lblTitle.Text = "";
            frmNote.rtbContent.Clear();
            frmNote.lblCreation.Text = (DateTime.Now.ToString());
            if (frmNote.ShowDialog() == System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK)
            {
                ListViewItem myItem = new ListViewItem(frmNote.lblTitle.Text, 0);
                myItem = lvNotes.Items.Add(myItem);
                myItem.SubItems.Add(frmNote.rtbContent.Text);
                myItem.SubItems.Add(frmNote.lblCreation.Text);
                //select the created row 
            }
        }

Hi,
Does the .Add method not return the new entry?
You should be able to use this to locate and select in the list...

It's a while since I did this, but can you not set the 'Selected' property to true?
