VB.Net Listview example

ListView provides a large number of properties that provide flexibility in appearance and behavior. The View property allows you to change the way in which items are displayed. and the SelectionMode property determines how many items in the list can be selected at a time.

The following Vb.Net program first set its view property as Details and GridLines property as true and FullRowSelect as true.

ListView1.View = View.Details ListView1.GridLines = True ListView1.FullRowSelect = True

Finally in the button click event, it will display the selected row values in a message box.
