Hi,

In picture1 (from Outlook) you see an image of a row that has been created in a listview
displayed in the Large Icon view. You see the icon is selected and the whole text is displayed.

In picure2 (my application) you see an image of a row that has been created in a listview
displayed in the Large Icon View. You see the icon is also selected BUT not the whole text
is displayed.

What can I do to get it like picture1, that the whole text is displayed?

Who knows the answer and is willing to help me?

Peter

private void tbNewNote_ItemClick(object sender, ItemClickEventArgs 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);
                myItem.Selected = true;
            }
        }

Check the MSDN documentation for the ListView.TileSize property:

Hope that helps.

It has nothing to do with the TileSize.

Outlook use a COM ListView, possibly a custom ListView, and although the result is similar, it does not have the same characteristics as the .NET ListView. Unfortunately for you, the .NET ListView does not have the possibility of setting the size.

Your easiest solution would be to use a smaller Font, but how small is small???

An alternative would be to set the OwnerDraw property to True and draw the thing yourself. This is quite involved however. Just give a look at the sample code for ListView.OwnerDrawn in the documentation.

Another alternative, that might end up being the best one, would be to use a FlowLayoutPanel with a UserControl. The UserControl would provide a PictureBox and a TextBox for which you can set the size, and the FlowLayoutPanel would simplify the positionning on the screen.
