ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection Class

Represents the collection of checked items in a list view control.

For a list of all members of this type, see ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection Members.

System.Object
   System.Windows.Forms.ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection

[Visual Basic]
Public Class ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection
   Implements IList, ICollection, IEnumerable
[C#]
public class ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection : IList,
   ICollection, IEnumerable
[C++]
public __gc class ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection : public
   IList, ICollection, IEnumerable
[JScript]
public class ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection implements
   IList, ICollection, IEnumerable

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

A ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection stores the checked items in a ListView control. Items can only be checked if the CheckBoxes property of the ListView control is set to true. The items stored in the ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection are items contained in the ListView.ListViewItemCollection. The ListView.ListViewItemCollection class stores all items displayed in the ListView control.

The following table is an example of how the ListView.ListViewItemCollection stores the items of the ListView as well as their selection states in an example ListView control.

Index Item Checked state in the ListView
0 Iem1 Unchecked
1 Item2 Checked
2 Item3 Unchecked
3 Item4 Checked
4 Item5 Checked

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

Index Checked Item In ListViewItemCollection
0 Item2
1 Item4
2 Item5

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 item from the ListView.ListViewItemCollection class is a member of the ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection. Once you know that the item is in the collection, you can use the IndexOf method to determine the position of the item in the ListView.CheckedListViewItemCollection.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following code example demonstrates the System.Windows.Forms.CheckedListViewItemCollection class.The example handles the System.Windows.Forms.ListView.ItemChecked event and uses the ListView. CheckedItems property to tally a new price each time an item is checked or unchecked. To run this example paste the following code in a form containing a ListView named ListView1 and a TextBox named Textbox1. Call the InititalizeListView method from the form's constructor or Load method. Ensure all events are connected to their event-handling methods.

[Visual Basic] 
Private Sub InitializeListView()
    Me.ListView1 = New System.Windows.Forms.ListView

    ' Set properties such as BackColor, Location and Size
    Me.ListView1.BackColor = System.Drawing.SystemColors.Control

    Me.ListView1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(0, 0)
    Me.ListView1.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(292, 130)
    Me.ListView1.View = System.Windows.Forms.View.Details
    Me.ListView1.HideSelection = False

    ' Allow user to select multiple items.
    Me.ListView1.MultiSelect = True

    ' Show check boxes in the ListView.
