ColumnHeaderStyle Enumeration

 

Specifies the styles of the column headers in a ListView control.

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

public enum class ColumnHeaderStyle

Member nameDescription
Clickable

The column headers function like buttons and can carry out an action, such as sorting, when clicked.

Nonclickable

The column headers do not respond to the click of a mouse.

None

The column header is not displayed in report view.

Use the members of this enumeration to set the value of the HeaderStyle property of the ListView control.

The following code example demonstrates using the ColumnHeaderStyle enumeration to set the ListView::HeaderStyle property of a ListView control. To run this example paste the following code in a form and call the InitializeListView method from the form's constructor or Load event handler.

// This method adds two columns to the ListView, setting the Text 
// and TextAlign, and Width properties of each ColumnHeader.  The 
// HeaderStyle property is set to NonClickable since the ColumnClick 
// event is not handled.  Finally the method adds ListViewItems and 
// SubItems to each column.
void InitializeListView()
{
   this->ListView1 = gcnew System::Windows::Forms::ListView;
   this->ListView1->BackColor = System::Drawing::SystemColors::Control;
   this->ListView1->Dock = System::Windows::Forms::DockStyle::Top;
   this->ListView1->Location = System::Drawing::Point( 0, 0 );
   this->ListView1->Name = "ListView1";
   this->ListView1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 292, 130 );
   this->ListView1->TabIndex = 0;
   this->ListView1->View = System::Windows::Forms::View::Details;

   this->ListView1->HideSelection = false;
   this->ListView1->HeaderStyle = ColumnHeaderStyle::Nonclickable;
   ColumnHeader^ columnHeader1 = gcnew ColumnHeader;
   columnHeader1->Text = "Breakfast Item";
   columnHeader1->TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment::Left;
   columnHeader1->Width = 146;
   ColumnHeader^ columnHeader2 = gcnew ColumnHeader;
   columnHeader2->Text = "Price Each";
   columnHeader2->TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment::Center;
   columnHeader2->Width = 142;
   this->ListView1->Columns->Add( columnHeader1 );
   this->ListView1->Columns->Add( columnHeader2 );

   array<String^>^foodPrice = {"1.09","1.09","2.19","2.49","1.49","1.49"};
   for ( int count = 0; count < foodList->Length; count++ )
   {
      ListViewItem^ listItem = gcnew ListViewItem( foodList[ count ] );
      listItem->SubItems->Add( foodPrice[ count ] );
      ListView1->Items->Add( listItem );

   }
