Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the SelectedIndices, SelectedIndexChanged, and HeaderStyle members and the ListView.SelectedIndexCollection class. To run this example, paste the following code into a form that contains a ListView object named ListView1 and a TextBox named TextBox1. Call the InitializeListView method from the form's constructor or Load event handler. This example requires that the event handler is correctly associated with the SelectedIndexChanged event.

// This method adds two columns to the ListView, setting the Text 
// and TextAlign, and Width properties of each ColumnHeader.  The 
// HeaderStyle property is set to NonClickable since the ColumnClick 
// event is not handled.  Finally the method adds ListViewItems and 
// SubItems to each column.
void InitializeListView()

   this->ListView1->Location = System::Drawing::Point( 0, 0 );
   this->ListView1->Name = "ListView1";
   this->ListView1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 292, 130 );
   this->ListView1->TabIndex = 0;
   this->ListView1->View = System::Windows::Forms::View::Details;
   this->ListView1->MultiSelect = true;
   this->ListView1->HideSelection = false;
   this->ListView1->HeaderStyle = ColumnHeaderStyle::Nonclickable;

   columnHeader1->Text = "Breakfast Item";
   columnHeader1->TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment::Left;
   columnHeader1->Width = 146;
   ColumnHeader^ columnHeader2 = gcnew ColumnHeader;
   columnHeader2->Text = "Price Each";
   columnHeader2->TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment::Center;

   for ( int count = 0; count < foodList->Length; count++ )
   {
      ListViewItem^ listItem = gcnew ListViewItem( foodList[ count ] );
      listItem->SubItems->Add( foodPrice[ count ] );
      ListView1->Items->Add( listItem );

   }
   this->Controls->Add( ListView1 );

Remarks

A ListView.SelectedIndexCollection stores the indexes to the selected items in a ListView control. The indexes stored in the ListView.SelectedIndexCollection are index positions within the ListView.ListViewItemCollection. The ListView.ListViewItemCollection stores all items displayed in the ListView control.

The following table shows an example of how the ListView.ListViewItemCollection stores the items of the ListView and shows their selection states in an example ListView.

Index Item Selection state in the ListView
0 Item1 Unselected
1 Item2 Selected
2 Item3 Unselected
3 Item4 Selected
4 Item5 Selected

Based on the ListView.ListViewItemCollection example in the previous table, the following table demonstrates how the ListView.SelectedIndexCollection would appear.

Index Index of selected item in the ListViewItemCollection
0 1
1 3
2 4

You can use the properties and methods of this class to perform a variety of tasks with the collection. The Contains method enables you to determine whether an index position from the ListView.ListViewItemCollection is one of the indexes stored in the ListView.SelectedIndexCollection. Once you know that the item is in the collection, you can use the IndexOf method to determine the position of the index in the ListView.SelectedIndexCollection.
