The Text property allows you to change the text displayed for the item. The text of the ListViewItem should not exceed 259 characters or unexpected behavior could occur.

You can use the BackColor, ForeColor, and Font properties to specify how the text is displayed. The ListView class provides the LabelWrap property that determines whether text wraps to the next line or is displayed on a single line.
