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

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

public int Column { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The zero-based index within the ListView.ColumnHeaderCollection of the column that is clicked.

You can use the information provided by this property 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 member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the ListView.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 MessageBox.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 ListView.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 );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "ColumnClick Event" );
}
