ListViewItem.SubItems Property

Gets a collection containing all subitems of the item.

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

public ListViewItem..::.ListViewSubItemCollection SubItems { get; }

Using the ListViewItem.ListViewSubItemCollection, you can add subitems, remove subitems, and obtain a count of subitems. For more information on the tasks that can be performed with the subitems in the collection, see the ListViewItem.ListViewSubItemCollection class reference topics.

NoteNote:

The first subitem in the ListViewItem.ListViewSubItemCollection is always the item that owns the subitems. When performing operations on subitems in the collection, be sure to reference index position 1 instead of 0 to make changes to the first subitem.

The following code example creates a ListView control with three ListViewItem objects specified and three ListViewItem.ListViewSubItem objects specified for each item. The example also creates ColumnHeader objects to display the subitems in details view. Two ImageList objects are also created in the code example to provide images for the ListViewItem objects. These ImageList objects are added to the LargeImageList and SmallImageList properties. The example uses the following properties in creating the ListView control:

You need to add the code to a Form and call the method created in the example from the constructor or another method on the form. The example requires that images named MySmallImage1, MySmallImage2, MyLargeImage1, and MyLargeImage2 are located in the root directory of drive C.
