How to select a ListView Item Programmatically.


This is a simple process, but most people forget a little step in doing this.

Step 1:

Create a ListView Item and name it to whatever you wish. I will use lv for simplicity.

Step 2:

Create a Button Item

Step 3:

Double Click the Button to start typeing code.


Step 4:

Enter the following code:

Private Sub Button1_Click(......) Handles Button1.Click

      lv.Items(0).Selected = True

      lv.Select() 'This is what most people forget. If you don't put this in here, it will never select the item in the list view.

End Sub

And that is it! Really Really simple, but very useful.


Step 5:

If you find this code useful. Vote for me.
