ListView and focusing on last item when vertical scrollbars appear

1 New Member

I was wondering if anyone can help me with this. I have a listview that is specified to a size of:

348W x 308H

When items are added to it, no problems. However when items continue to be added such that the list gets too large to be displayed, the scrollbars appear. Once this occurs, the last item though selected and focused (highlighted blue), will not appear within the viewable area since the listview requires a scrolldown.

This listview has 4 columns:
-name, quantity, price, subtotal

I add the subitems to a temporary listview object which in turn is added to my listviewReceipt . Once added, I set focus to the listviewReceipt and select the last item added. Here is a bit of the code snippet:

sTemp = String.Format(" {0:n2}", dTempTotal) 'added to subtotal
lvObject.SubIte ms.Add(sTemp)
lvReceipt.Items .Add(lvObject)
lvReceipt.Focus ()
lvReceipt.Items (lvObject.Index ).Selected = True

My question is how to make the listview automatically scrolldown to the last item added. I was able to do this with a regular listbox using the following two lines of code:

lstReceipt.Item s.Add(oGroceryI tem)
lstReceipt.Sele ctedIndex = lstReceipt.Item s.Count - 1 'sets focus and autoscrolls down if neccessary

however the listbox formatting is not very nice for a 4 column list. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks ahead of time.

I reload the items in the listview on a regular schedule (i.e. clear the listview, then load it up with fresh values).

When I fill a listview, I resize the columns to fit the data. I need to know if the data will fit vertically or if there will be a vertical scroll bar. I need to know this so I can allow for it on the overall size of the listview. My question therefore is, how can I tell if the items I have added will fit in the listview at its given height? A secondary one, just for interest sake...is there a way to determine the exact heght needed...
