Hi,

I have this code for creating a node in a listview.
But after creating the node the node is not selected.
I have put the line of code (marked with an arrow) to selected the not when it is created
but it's not working.

        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; <===============================
            }
        }

Here is the modified code:-

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; <===============================
                lvNotes.Select(); //calling select to let the list view know that it need to display the selected item.
            }
        }
