ListView.SearchForVirtualItem Event

Note: This event is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Occurs when the ListView is in virtual mode and a search is taking place.

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

public event SearchForVirtualItemEventHandler SearchForVirtualItem
/** @event */
public void add_SearchForVirtualItem (SearchForVirtualItemEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_SearchForVirtualItem (SearchForVirtualItemEventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

This event occurs when a ListView is in virtual mode and the FindNearestItem or FindItemWithText method is called. When handling this event, you should calculate which item from the list of items supplied by the Items property matches the search criteria and set the SearchForVirtualItemEventArgs.Index property to the index of the ListViewItem. If an item is not provided, FindNearestItem and FindItemWithText will return a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.
