ListBox.ItemHeight Property

Gets or sets the height of an item in the ListBox.

[Visual Basic]
Public Overridable Property ItemHeight As Integer
public virtual int ItemHeight {get; set;}
public: __property virtual int get_ItemHeight();
public: __property virtual void set_ItemHeight(int);
public function get ItemHeight() : int;
public function set ItemHeight(int);

Property Value

The height, in pixels, of an item in the control.


Exception Type Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException The ItemHeight property was set beyond 255 pixels.


When the DrawMode property is set to DrawMode.OwnerDrawFixed, all items have the same height. When the DrawMode property is set to DrawMode.OwnerDrawVariable, the ItemHeight property specifies the height of each item added to the ListBox. Because each item in an owner-drawn list can have a different height, you can use the GetItemHeight method to get the height of a specific item in the ListBox. If you use the ItemHeight property on a ListBox with items of variable height, this property returns the height of the first item in the control.

The maximum height of a ListBox item is 255 pixels.
