Places the item text into edit mode.

[Visual Basic]
Public Sub BeginEdit()
public void BeginEdit();
public: void BeginEdit();
public function BeginEdit();


Exception Type Condition
InvalidOperationException The LabelEdit property of the associated ListView control is not set to true.


This property is only effective if the LabelEdit property of the ListView control that contains the item is set to true. You can use this method at run time to force the item's text to display in edit mode. For example, if you are validating the item text edited by the user, and an item fails validation, you could select the item in the ListView control and call the BeginEdit method to force the user to change the text that failed validation.
