Property Value

A ListViewItem that represents the item that has focus, or null if no item has the focus in the ListView.



The FocusedItem property returns the ListViewItem that represents the item currently displaying the focus rectangle for the ListView control. Because a ListView control has no directly editable areas other than the items it displays, when the ListView control has focus, an item within the ListView displays the focus reticle around its item text. Typically, the last selected item in the ListView control is the item with focus. Although an item may be the one displaying the focus reticle, it may not actually be a selected item in the ListView. Use the SelectedItems or SelectedIndices properties to obtain the selected items in the ListView control, the FocusedItem property is not necessarily selected. You can use the FocusedItem property to determine which item was last clicked in the ListView control, regardless of selection state.
