Provides item information, given x- and y-coordinates.

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

public ListViewHitTestInfo HitTest(
	int x,
	int y
)

Parameters

x
Type: System.Int32

The x-coordinate at which to retrieve the item information. The coordinate is relative to the upper-left corner of the control.

y
Type: System.Int32

The y-coordinate at which to retrieve the item information. The coordinate is relative to the upper-left corner of the control.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ListViewHitTestInfo

The item information, given x- and y- coordinates.

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The x- or y-coordinate is less than 0.

Use this method to determine whether a point is in an item or subitem, and where in the item the point is located, such as on the label or image area. If the coordinates are located outside the control, the returned ListViewHitTestInfo object has a Location property of "None"; and the Item and SubItem properties are set to null.

The following code example demonstrates using the HitTest method to determine the location of a mouse event in a ListView. To run this example, paste it into a Windows Form that contains a ListView named listView1 that is populated with items. Associate the MouseDown event for listView1 with the listView1_MouseDown method in this example.

void HandleMouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    ListViewHitTestInfo info = listView1.HitTest(e.X, e.Y);
    MessageBox.Show(info.Location.ToString());
}
