ListViewItem.In dex = -1 ... why?

Hi everyone

I have a form which contains a ListView control. The code
handles the SelectedIndexCh anged event, and changes some
icons on some items in the ListView.

I've found that when I deactivate and reactivate the form
(an MDI child, in case that matters), the
SelectedIndexCh anged event is fired. On its own, that's not
a problem... but the following code causes trouble:
Dim lvw As ListView = Me.MyListView

' get the currently selected item
Dim itm1 As ListViewItem = lvw.SelectedIte ms(0)

If (itm1.Index < lvw.Items.Count - 1) Then
' get the following item in the list
Dim itm2 As ListViewItem = lvw.Items(itm1. Index + 1)

' and change its icon
itm2.ImageIndex = 0
End If
The line that sets the ImageIndex is causing an exception,
saying that "index" cannot be -1. But -1 is a valid value
for ImageIndex, and I passed a value of zero. So it can't
be talking about the value I specified for ImageIndex...

The call stack shows:

System.Windows. Forms.ListView. SetItemImage(in t index=-1,
int image=0)
System.Windows. Forms.ListViewI tem.set_Image(i nt value=0)

So "set_Image" is passing a value of -1 ... and sure
enough, if I put a breakpoint on the line of code that sets
"itm2.ImageInde x", I can see that "itm2.Index " is indeed -1.


i.e., I just looked it up by its index, so obviously the
ListView knows this item's index... so why does the item
not know its own index?

Can anyone suggest a workaround, other than simply ignoring
the exception? I'd rather not do that because then it might
be possible that the icons do not get set properly.

The following is a code example from the Microsoft MSDN. My question is on the following three lines of code: ListViewItem item1 = new ListViewItem("item1",0); ListViewItem item2 = new ListViewItem("item2",1); ListViewItem item3 = new ListViewItem("item3",0); You would in most cases know the ListViewItem name or the number of items to create (item1,item2 etc). How would you create this individual rows programmatically ?

Question: I have a ListView in which I'm selecting a ListViewItem based on the value of a textbox. On my XP machine (with default color scheme) the ..Selected row is a noticable grey (back color of ListView is white). However, on a custom Win2K desktop, the selected item is a faint grey and the users can barely see the highlighted row. The custom desktop settings have been locked down (ie. cannot be changed via Control Panel etc.)

An interesting problem: I have a ListView with LabelEdit set to TRUE. When I change the label, I want to make some decisions as to whether the ListViewItem (that's just been edited) should stay in the ListView or not. The natural place to inspect this is in the AfterLabelEdit event... If the decision is to take the item out, I used the ListViewItem.Remove(). However - check this out: A) say that the item's index is N (indices are...

Hi, I would like to display all listview items in one row with scroll bar below it – instead of multiple rows and scroll bar on the right. Someone told me that I can achieve it using LVM_SETITEMPOSITION message. According to my knowledge code below should set position for each item added to listView control. There are two ways of doing it - we can use MessageWindow.SendMessage from Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms or use DllImport and SendMessage....

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,...
