The following code example demonstrates using the HitTest method to determine the location of a MouseDown event in a ListView. To run this code, paste it into a Windows Form that contains a ListView named listView1 that is populated with items. Associate the MouseDown event for listview1 and the form with the HandleMouseDown method in this example.

void HandleMouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
    ListViewHitTestInfo info = listView1.HitTest(e.X, e.Y);
