Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
This event lets you customize the appearance of a ListView control using owner drawing. It is raised only when the OwnerDraw property is set to true and the View property is set to View.Details. For more information on owner drawing, see the OwnerDraw property reference topic.
Subitem information typically appears in the tile view as well as the details view, but in the tile view, it must be drawn in a handler for the DrawItem event.
The event can occur for each ListView subitem. You can handle the DrawItem event to draw elements common to all subitems, such as the background, and handle the event to draw elements for individual subitems, such as text values. You can also draw all items in the ListView control using only one of the two events, although this may be less convenient. To draw column headers in the details view, you must handle the DrawColumnHeader event.
The event does not occur for any subitems for which no ColumnHeader object has been added to the Columns collection. Note also that the first subitem of each ListViewItem object represents the parent item itself, and is displayed in the first column.
