ListView and new features

Hi,

Several months ago i've asked some information about the best way how to
have some particular columns (progress bar, checkbox, images, color
picker,...) in a ListView component.

It seems that ListView is a complex component and a lot of people advise
to build a custom component but not from ListVIew itself.

Some use a datagrid component as base component, some build a component
from scratch, and so on.

I know that some will write that it is stupid to reinvent the hot water,
but it is for training purpose.

therefore i would like to know what is the component trend to improve
ListView features ? Datagrid, custom component, and so on...

thanks a lot,

Al.

The clcik event on the ListView control seems to trigger off the item level ( the first column ). I would like to be able to trap the click event on a particular subitem ( a specific column's row ). If possible, what do I do to activate that 'cell' - thanks. I thought that listView.LabelEdit = true; would enable me to navigate into the...

hi all, I'm really jarred off with the ListView that comes with the .NET v1.1. Why didn't they bother to provide a nicely wrapped implentation of the Win32 ListView control? with support for retieving column orders, setting images for sub items, access to the column headers, etc, the list goes on. I've implemented numerous different...

The MyList data is resident in a dataset table. I'm stuck and can't choose either because. If I choose ListView as my control I don't understand how...

VB6 has a SorkKey property that you can setup on the ListView control to tell the ListView what column to use for sorting. In .NET there is a Sort() method and a SortOrder property that you can use to manipulate the Sorting property. My question is how do I perform the same functionality as I do in VB6 setting the SortKey and SortOrder with...

Is it me, or does it seem like they put no effort into creating the listview control in .Net. listview. A few gripes I have with .Net listview that aren't present in vb6: -Inability to set tooltiptext of subitems (without the use of a very inconveniant work around). -Inability to display images in subitems (without using the windows api
