ListViewItemStates Enumeration

Defines constants that represent the possible states of a ListViewItem.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

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

[FlagsAttribute]
public enum ListViewItemStates

Member nameDescription
CheckedThe item is checked.
DefaultThe item is in its default state.
FocusedThe item has focus.
GrayedThe item is disabled.
HotThe item is currently under the mouse pointer.
IndeterminateThe item is in an indeterminate state.
MarkedThe item is marked.
SelectedThe item is selected.
ShowKeyboardCuesThe item should indicate a keyboard shortcut.

This enumeration is used by the DrawListViewItemEventArgs.State and DrawListViewSubItemEventArgs.ItemState properties. For more information, see the ListView.DrawItem and ListView.DrawSubItem events.

The following example demonstrates how to provide custom drawing for a ListView control. The ListView control in the example has a gradient background. Subitems with negative values have a red foreground and a black background.

A handler for the ListView.DrawItem event draws the background for entire items and for the column headers row. A handler for the ListView.DrawSubItem event draws the text values and both the text and background for subitems that have negative values.

A ContextMenu component provides a way to switch between the details view and the list. In the list view, only the ListView.DrawItem event is fired. In this case, the text and background are both drawn in the ListView.DrawItem event handler.

For the complete example, see the ListView.OwnerDraw reference topic.


// Draws the backgrounds for entire ListView items.
private void listView1_DrawItem(object sender,
    DrawListViewItemEventArgs e)
{
    if ((e.State & ListViewItemStates.Selected) != 0)
    {
        // Draw the background and focus rectangle for a selected item.
        e.Graphics.FillRectangle(Brushes.Maroon, e.Bounds);
        e.DrawFocusRectangle();
    }
    else
    {
        // Draw the background for an unselected item.
        using (LinearGradientBrush brush =
            new LinearGradientBrush(e.Bounds, Color.Orange,
            Color.Maroon, LinearGradientMode.Horizontal))
        {
            e.Graphics.FillRectangle(brush, e.Bounds);
        }
    }

    // Draw the item text for views other than the Details view.
    if (listView1.View != View.Details)
    {
        e.DrawText();
    }
}
