VB.net Highlighting a ListView Item

Hi

After adding a ListView item, I want to colour the background of the text?
How would I do this?
Is it possible to shade it using a gradient style?

Me.ListView1.Items(index).BackColor = your desired color

And about the gradient... theorically it's possible, but you must draw by yourself all the element, including icon, text, and so on... if you want to experiment with it, you must set the OwnerDraw property of the ListView to true and then write code in the DrawItem, DrawSubItem and DrawColumnHeader events.

Hope that helps.
