C# Listview example

ListView provides a large number of properties that provide flexibility in appearance and behavior. The View property allows you to change the way in which items are displayed. The SelectionMode property for a ListView determines how many items a user can select at one time.

The following C# program first set its view property as Details and GridLines property as true and FullRowSelect as true.

Finally at the button click event, it will display the selected row values in a message box.

using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            listView1.View = View.Details;
            listView1.GridLines = true;
            listView1.FullRowSelect = true;

            //Add column header
            listView1.Columns.Add("ProductName", 100);
            listView1.Columns.Add("Price", 70);
            listView1.Columns.Add("Quantity", 70);

            //Add items in the listview
            string[] arr = new string[4];
            ListViewItem itm ;

            //Add first item
            arr[0] = "product_1";
            arr[1] = "100";
            arr[2] = "10";
            itm = new ListViewItem(arr);

            //Add second item
            arr[0] = "product_2";
            arr[1] = "200";
            arr[2] = "20";
            itm = new ListViewItem(arr);

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            string productName = null;
            string price = null;
            string quantity = null;

            productName = listView1.SelectedItems[0].SubItems[0].Text;
            price = listView1.SelectedItems[0].SubItems[1].Text;
            quantity = listView1.SelectedItems[0].SubItems[2].Text;

            MessageBox.Show (productName + " , " + price + " , " + quantity);
