Property Value

The text to display for the item.

The Text property allows you to change the text displayed for the item. 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.

The following code " demonstrates how to initialize a ListViewItem and set the Tag and Text properties. To run this ", place the following code in a form containing a ListView named ListView1, and call InitializeListViewItems from the form's constructor or Load event-handling method.

private void InitializeListViewItems()
{
    ListView1.View = View.List;
    

    Cursor[] favoriteCursors = new Cursor[]{Cursors.Help, 
        Cursors.Hand, Cursors.No, Cursors.Cross};

    // Populate the ListView control with the array of Cursors.
    foreach ( Cursor aCursor in favoriteCursors )
    {

        // Construct the ListViewItem object
        ListViewItem item = new ListViewItem();

        // Set the Text property to the cursor name.
        item.Text = aCursor.ToString();

        // Set the Tag property to the cursor.
        item.Tag = aCursor;

        // Add the ListViewItem to the ListView.
        ListView1.Items.Add(item);
    }
}

private void InitializeListViewItems()
{
    listView1.set_View(View.List);

    Cursor favoriteCursors[] = new Cursor[] { Cursors.get_Help(),
        Cursors.get_Hand(), Cursors.get_No(), Cursors.get_Cross() };
    // Populate the ListView control with the array of Cursors.
    for (int iCtr = 0; iCtr < favoriteCursors.length; iCtr++) {
        Cursor aCursor = favoriteCursors[iCtr];
        // Construct the ListViewItem object
        ListViewItem item = new ListViewItem();
        // Set the Text property to the cursor name.
        item.set_Text(aCursor.ToString());
        // Set the Tag property to the cursor.
        item.set_Tag(aCursor);
        // Add the ListViewItem to the ListView.
        listView1.get_Items().Add(item);
    }
} //InitializeListViewItems
