ListView::FullRowSelect Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether clicking an item selects all its subitems.

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

public:
property bool FullRowSelect {
	bool get ();
	void set (bool value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if clicking an item selects the item and all its subitems; false if clicking an item selects only the item itself. The default is false.

The FullRowSelect property has no effect unless the View property of the ListView control is set to Details. The FullRowSelect property is typically used when a ListView displays items with many subitems and it is important to be able to see selected items when the item text is not visible due to horizontal scrolling of the control's contents.

NoteNote

When FullRowSelect is set to true, ToolTips for a ListViewItem::ListViewSubItem will not be shown; only the ToolTip for the parent ListViewItem is displayed.

The following code example creates a ListView control with three ListViewItem objects specified and three ListViewItem::ListViewSubItem objects specified for each item. The example also creates ColumnHeader objects to display the subitems in details view. Two ImageList objects are also created in the code example to provide images for the ListViewItem objects. These ImageList objects are added to the LargeImageList and SmallImageList properties. The example uses the following properties in creating the ListView control.

This example requires that you have added the code to a Form and call the method created in the example from the constructor or another method on the form. The example also requires that images named MySmallImage1, MySmallImage2, MyLargeImage1, and MyLargeImage2 are located in the root directory of drive C.
