Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to set the UseItemStyleForSubItems property to false to define a custom style for ListViewItem.ListViewSubItem objects. The example demonstrates how to set the ForeColor and Font properties. To run the example, paste the following code into a form, and call the InitializeListView method in form's constructor or Load event-handling method.

internal:
   // Declare the Listview object.
   System::Windows::Forms::ListView^ myListView;

private:

   // Initialize the ListView object with subitems of a different
   // style than the default styles for the ListView.
   void InitializeListView()
   {
      // Set the Location, View and Width properties for the 
      // ListView object. 
      myListView = gcnew ListView;
      myListView->Location = System::Drawing::Point( 20, 20 );
      myListView->Width = 250;
      
      // The View property must be set to Details for the 
      // subitems to be visible.
      myListView->View = View::Details;
      
      // Each SubItem object requires a column, so add three columns.
      this->myListView->Columns->Add( "Key", 50, HorizontalAlignment::Left );
      this->myListView->Columns->Add( "A", 100, HorizontalAlignment::Left );
      this->myListView->Columns->Add( "B", 100, HorizontalAlignment::Left );
      
      // Add a ListItem object to the ListView.
      ListViewItem^ entryListItem = myListView->Items->Add( "Items" );
      
      // Set UseItemStyleForSubItems property to false to change 
      // look of subitems.
      entryListItem->UseItemStyleForSubItems = false;
      
      // Add the expense subitem.
      ListViewItem::ListViewSubItem ^ expenseItem = entryListItem->SubItems->Add( "Expense" );
      
      // Change the expenseItem object's color and font.
      expenseItem->ForeColor = System::Drawing::Color::Red;
      expenseItem->Font = gcnew System::Drawing::Font( "Arial",10,System::Drawing::FontStyle::Italic );
      
      // Add a subitem called revenueItem 
      ListViewItem::ListViewSubItem ^ revenueItem = entryListItem->SubItems->Add( "Revenue" );
      
      // Change the revenueItem object's color and font.
      revenueItem->ForeColor = System::Drawing::Color::Blue;
      revenueItem->Font = gcnew System::Drawing::Font( "Times New Roman",10,System::Drawing::FontStyle::Bold );

Remarks

You can use this property to change the font styles applied to the text of the subitem. If the UseItemStyleForSubItems property of the ListViewItem is set to true, changing this property will have no effect. Because the Font is immutable (meaning that you cannot adjust any of its properties), you can only assign the Font property a new Font. However, you can base the new font on the existing font.

The following is an example of how to adjust the existing font to make it bold:

listViewItem1.SubItems[1].Font = new Font(listViewItem1.SubItems[1].Font,   
       listViewItem1.SubItems[1].Font.Style | FontStyle.Bold);  
ListViewItem1.SubItems[1].Font = New Font(ListViewItem1.SubItems[1].Font, _   
       ListViewItem1.SubItems[1].Font.Style Or FontStyle.Bold)  

If the UseItemStyleForSubItems property of the ListViewItem that owns the subitem is set to true, setting this property has no effect.
