ListViewBase isn't used as a control class, because it is the base class for other controls. You could either derive from those other controls or derive from directly, but the latter means that you have to provide a template and a lot more behavior. If you derive from ListViewBase, override OnCreateAutomationPeer so that it returns a custom peer that is based on ListViewBaseAutomationPeer.
