ListBox::ColumnWidth Property

Gets or sets the width of columns in a multicolumn ListBox.

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

public:
property int ColumnWidth {
	int get ();
	void set (int value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::Int32
The width, in pixels, of each column in the control. The default is 0.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

A value less than zero is assigned to the property.

If you set the value to zero (0), a default width is assigned to each column. If the ListBox is a multicolumn ListBox, this property returns the current width of each column in the list. You can use this property to ensure that each column in a multicolumn ListBox can properly display its items.

The following code example demonstrates a simple two-column ListBox.
