The following code example demonstrates a ListView with hot tracking enabled. To run this example, paste the following code into a Windows Form and call the InitializeHotTrackingListView method from the form's constructor or Load event handler.

private ImageList list = new ImageList();
private ListView hotTrackinglistView = new ListView();

private void InitializeHotTrackingListView(){
    list.Images.Add(new Bitmap(typeof(Button), "Button.bmp"));
    hotTrackinglistView.SmallImageList = list;
    hotTrackinglistView.Location = new Point(20, 20);
    hotTrackinglistView.View = View.SmallIcon;
    ListViewItem listItem1 = new ListViewItem("Short", 0 );
    ListViewItem listItem2 = new ListViewItem("Tiny", 0);
    hotTrackinglistView.Items.Add(listItem1);
    hotTrackinglistView.Items.Add(listItem2);
    hotTrackinglistView.HotTracking = true;
    this.Controls.Add(hotTrackinglistView);
}
