.NET 2.0 Double buffering on list view

In the documentation for the listview for owner drawn it says this

Note
To avoid issues with graphics flickering when owner drawing, override
the ListView control and set the DoubleBuffered property to true.


Now, I am owner drawing my list view items, and yes it does flicker a lot...
now to enable double buffering do i have to make a whole new custom control
and inherit the list view just to override it to turn on double buffering?
or is there some way i can do this in code and override the listview and
enable doublebuffering with out having to make a new inherited control?
thanks!

The SetStyle method is protected. To access it you have no choice but to
derive from the control and override the relavent methods.

I have read plenty about applying double buffering for animation and self drawn forms. Is there a way to apply it to a form with many standard controls on it (textboxes, labels etc) ?? I have tried using myForm.SetStyles(ControlStyles.DoubleBuffer, True) however it has made no impact on the drawing operation. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated -Alex

I notice in VB 2005 that I can set a form to be double-buffered just by setting that option to true in the Form properties. I have a panel on that form but there doesn't appear to be a double-buffered property for the panel control. My first question: is the double buffering set on the form inherited by the panel control or do I have to do the old fashioned manual double-buffering with the panel? I've noticed that animation I render...

Hi, I have a question about double buffering, or more specifically, when to apply it. As mentioned in another post, I have a control that basically contains three other controls. This parent control has no real painting of it's own. The main child is a data area, and the two other children are on top of and to the left of the data area, respectively, making a kind of grid view. So when the data area scrolls, the other two are set to...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

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,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
