ListView.HotTracking Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the text of an item or subitem has the appearance of a hyperlink when the mouse pointer passes over it.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public bool HotTracking { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the item text has the appearance of a hyperlink when the mouse passes over it; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Enabling hot tracking will cause the Activation property to be set to OneClick and the HoverSelection property to be set to true. In addition, run-time label editing is not allowed when hot tracking is enabled.

The following code example demonstrates a ListView with hot tracking enabled. To run this example, paste the following code into a Windows Form and call the InitializeHotTrackingListView method from the form's constructor or Load event handler.

private ImageList list = new ImageList();
private ListView hotTrackinglistView = new ListView();

private void InitializeHotTrackingListView(){
    list.Images.Add(new Bitmap(typeof(Button), "Button.bmp"));
    hotTrackinglistView.SmallImageList = list;
    hotTrackinglistView.Location = new Point(20, 20);
    hotTrackinglistView.View = View.SmallIcon;
    ListViewItem listItem1 = new ListViewItem("Short", 0 );
    ListViewItem listItem2 = new ListViewItem("Tiny", 0);
    hotTrackinglistView.Items.Add(listItem1);
    hotTrackinglistView.Items.Add(listItem2);
    hotTrackinglistView.HotTracking = true;
    this.Controls.Add(hotTrackinglistView);
}
