Sort list box, vb.net

I have the following list box made with multiple columns:sortI want to be able to sort this list box by one column (any of those at display).

Question: How can I do this?

I know, I could capture Y position at mouse down (this will help me to identify when the header area is clicked). I can also capture X position if column widths doesn't change.

So mouse down even alone could help me to identify what column has been clicked on. But I have to be able either:
a. Keep the column widths fixed, or
b. Read the column widths when the list box gets filled in.

Could you possibly think of a solution for a and/or b above.

Gridview is a good option but I want something very light weight. Are there some other middle ground controls like ListView we had in vb 6.0?

Thanks.

ListView here

' Sort the items in the list in ascending order.
listView1.Sorting = SortOrder.Ascending

Custom sorting
The following code example creates a form that contains a ListView control that manually sorts items when a column in the ListView control is clicked.
