Examples

The following example shows how to use the ItemType property to determine whether the item that is being created is a data item. If the item is a data item, the email address is displayed in italic. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ListViewItem class.

protected void ContactsListView_ItemCreated(object sender, ListViewItemEventArgs e)
{
  // Retrieve the current item.
  ListViewItem item = e.Item;

  // Verify if the item is a data item.
  if (item.ItemType == ListViewItemType.DataItem)
  {
    // Get the EmailAddressLabel Label control in the item.
    Label EmailAddressLabel = (Label)item.FindControl("EmailAddressLabel");
    
    // Display the email address in italics.
    EmailAddressLabel.Font.Italic = true;
  }
}
Protected Sub ContactsListView_ItemCreated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ListViewItemEventArgs)
  
  ' Retrieve the current item.
  Dim item As ListViewItem = e.Item
  
  ' Verify if the item is a data item.
  If item.ItemType = ListViewItemType.DataItem Then
          
    ' Get the EmailAddressLabel Label control in the item.      
    Dim EmailAddressLabel As Label = CType(item.FindControl("EmailAddressLabel"), Label)
    
    ' Display the email address in italics.
    EmailAddressLabel.Font.Italic = True
          
  End If

End Sub

Remarks

Use the ItemType property to determine the type of item that the ListViewItem object represents, as listed in the following table.

Item type Description
DataItem A data item in the ListView control.
InsertItem An insert item in the ListView control.
EmptyItem An empty item in the ListView control. The empty item is displayed when the ListView control does not have any records to display, or when a group in the ListView control does not have any more records to display.
