Add items to 3 separate listview colums when readuing through xml nodes

Any idea how I get the three separate data pieces into their own column on a listview? They all end up in the very first column.

        For Each sPath As String In IO.Directory.GetFiles(TextBox1.Text)
            TextBox2.Text = sPath
            If IO.Path.GetExtension(sPath) = ".xml" Then

                Dim doc As New XmlDocument()
                Dim nodes As XmlNodeList
                doc.Load(sPath)

                nodes = doc.SelectNodes("/log/entry")
                Dim node As XmlNode

                For Each node In nodes

                        Dim nodecliconnaddr As XmlNode = node.SelectSingleNode("cliconnaddr")
                    If nodecliconnaddr IsNot Nothing Then
                        ListView1.Columns(0).ListView.Items.Add(nodecliconnaddr.InnerText)
                        'ListBox1.Items.Add(nodecliconnaddr.InnerText)
                    End If

                            Dim nodecmd As XmlNode = node.SelectSingleNode("cmd")
                    If nodecmd IsNot Nothing Then
                        ListView1.Columns(1).ListView.Items.Add(nodecmd.InnerText)
                        'ListBox2.Items.Add(nodecmd.InnerText)
                    End If

                            Dim nodelog_time As XmlNode = node.SelectSingleNode("log_time")
                    If nodelog_time IsNot Nothing Then
                        ListView1.Columns(2).ListView.Items.Add(nodelog_time.InnerText)
                        '   ListBox3.Items.Add(nodelog_time.InnerText)
                    End If

                Next
            End If

Change line 16 to

ListView1.Columns(0).SubitemsItems.Add(nodecliconnaddr.InnerText)

Line 22 to

ListView1.Columns(0).SubItems.Add(nodecmd.InnerText)

Line 28 to

ListView1.Columns(0).SubItems.Add(nodelog_time.InnerText)

I get the following error for all three lines the first one had items twice as well but I sqaw and fixed that right away)

'Subitems' is not a member of 'system.windows.forms.ColumnHeader'

at least the command is on the right track, when I run it I get the following:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException' occurred in System.Windows.Forms.dll

Additional information: InvalidArgument=Value of '0' is not valid for 'index'.

I got around to testing the code.

Here is your updated code


        For Each sPath As String In IO.Directory.GetFiles(TextBox1.Text)
            TextBox2.Text = sPath
            If IO.Path.GetExtension(sPath) = ".xml" Then

                Dim doc As New XmlDocument()
                Dim nodes As XmlNodeList
                doc.Load(sPath)

                nodes = doc.SelectNodes("/log/entry")
                Dim node As XmlNode

                For Each node In nodes
                        Dim item As New ListViewItem("Text in first column")
                        Dim nodecliconnaddr As XmlNode = node.SelectSingleNode("cliconnaddr")
                    If nodecliconnaddr IsNot Nothing Then
                        item.SubItems.Add(nodecliconnaddr.InnerText)
                    End If

                            Dim nodecmd As XmlNode = node.SelectSingleNode("cmd")
                    If nodecmd IsNot Nothing Then
                        item.SubItems.Add(nodecmd.InnerText)
                    End If

                            Dim nodelog_time As XmlNode = node.SelectSingleNode("log_time")
                    If nodelog_time IsNot Nothing Then
                        item.SubItems.Add(nodelog_time.InnerText)
                    End If
                    ListView1.Items.Add(item)
                Next
            End If

So this code displays "Text in first column" in the first column and then adds the ccliconnaddr.inner text properly in the second, and then lumps the 2nd and 3rd info fields together in the third column.

Try following then


        For Each sPath As String In IO.Directory.GetFiles(TextBox1.Text)
            TextBox2.Text = sPath
            If IO.Path.GetExtension(sPath) = ".xml" Then

                Dim doc As New XmlDocument()
                Dim nodes As XmlNodeList
                doc.Load(sPath)

                nodes = doc.SelectNodes("/log/entry")
                Dim node As XmlNode

                For Each node In nodes
                        Dim item As New ListViewItem("Text in first column")
                        Dim nodecliconnaddr As XmlNode = node.SelectSingleNode("cliconnaddr")
                    If nodecliconnaddr IsNot Nothing Then
                        item.Text = (nodecliconnaddr.InnerText)
                    End If

                            Dim nodecmd As XmlNode = node.SelectSingleNode("cmd")
                    If nodecmd IsNot Nothing Then
                        item.SubItems.Add(nodecmd.InnerText)
                    End If

                            Dim nodelog_time As XmlNode = node.SelectSingleNode("log_time")
                    If nodelog_time IsNot Nothing Then
                        item.SubItems.Add(nodelog_time.InnerText)
                    End If
                    ListView1.Items.Add(item)
                Next
            End If
