Slow listview

I am using Listview and inherited listview control overriding WndProc
& PreProcessMessa ge in ListView.

I need this to customize listview to display only the page the user
scrolls to. Since i am populating listview with more than 200,000
items. It is too slow and tried virtual listview. But that doesnot
allow me to add images in the listview. So now trying to list only the
page user scrolls to.

Tried to keep track of the current page by simple logic. Now want to
know whether is there anyother way of keeping track of the PAGE THE
USER SCROLLS to. I know in advance the number of items in the
listview. Also know the no. of items in each page.

Wot change i need to do to keep track of the current page in

Also let me know is there any way to speed listview. I tried sorting
to be false and also tried lockwindowupdat e api. It had only little
effect. Then also tried virtual listview.. Its performance is very
good but could not add images. Pls let me know how to speeed listview
for nearly 200,000 items(adding images too).

Will this logic of listing the page only the user requested scrolled
to will work (without flickering??)..

Given two .NET applications A and B. These two application communicate with each other by using an object C: A --> C <-- B Application A has a listview. This listview can be refreshed by pressing F5 OR externally by receiving an event from C. C will raise an event when it receives data from B. So, B sends a message to C. And C raises an event that is "catched" by A.
