ColumnClickEventArgs Class


Provides data for the ColumnClick event.

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


public class ColumnClickEventArgs : EventArgs


Initializes a new instance of the ColumnClickEventArgs class.


Gets the zero-based index of the column that is clicked.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

The ColumnClickEventArgs class provides the zero-based index within the ListView.ColumnHeaderCollection class of the column that is clicked in the ListView control. You can use this information in an event handler for the ColumnClick event to determine which column is being clicked to perform tasks on the data within the column.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this type. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the ColumnClick event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type ListView named ListView1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the ColumnClick event.

private void ListView1_ColumnClick(Object sender, ColumnClickEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Column", e.Column );
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "ColumnClick Event" );
