One of the ListViewAlignment values.

Exception Condition

The value specified in the value parameter is not a member of the ListViewAlignment enumeration.

The ArrangeIcons method is only useful when the View property is set to LargeIcon or SmallIcon. This version of the ArrangeIcons method arranges the icons in the ListView based on the ListViewAlignment value specified in the value parameter. Calling this method does not change the value of the Alignment property of the control. This method is used to arrange icons on the control using a different value than that of the Alignment property. To cause the items to be aligned based on the value of the Alignment property, use the other version of the ArrangeIcons method.
