backcolor in ListView Item

In a ListView control (two columns), I added a few
ListView items.

ListView listview=new ListView();
listview.Parent =this;
listview.View=V iew.Details;
listview.Column s.Add
("Col1",200,Hor izontalAlignmen t.Left);
listview.Column s.Add
("Col2",800,Hor izontalAlignmen t.Left);

ListViewItem lvi=newLitViewI tem("1");
lvi.SubItems.Ad d("Item 1");
listview.Items. Add(lvi);

ListViewItem lvi=newLitViewI tem("2");
lvi.SubItems.Ad d("Item 2");
listview.Items. Add(lvi);

When clicking one of the items, the selected one had

backcolor light grey.

But when change focus from the other controls in same form

to the ListView control, the focused ListView item had

backcolor blue.

What I want is set backcolor light grey for ListView items

when they get focus.

How to do it?

Thanks

Keith

I am attempting to change the backColor property on the previously instantiated buttons FROM a listbox_doubleClick event.

Hello, I'm developing a C# program using Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition. In the main form I have inserted a ListView control that is populated in a different way depending on the item selected in a ComboBox. I have written a procedure that reads the ComboBox selected item and populates the ListView according to that. The procedure uses a "for" cycle: in every iteration it creates a ListViewItem, set its SubItems and BackColor...

Hello, I have a form that contains a listview on the left side and a column of buttons on the right side. Only some of the buttons do I want enabled all the time.

It seems that I can only get the buttons to disable if I click off the text of the items in the listview but still within about 10-20 pixels of...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
