Property Value

The key for the image that is displayed for the ListViewItem.

The ImageKey property returns an empty string ("") when the ImageKey is not set for the ListViewItem. The ImageKey and ImageIndex properties are mutually exclusive, meaning if one is set, the other is ignored. If you set the ImageKey property, the ImageIndex property is automatically set to -1. Alternatively, if you set the ImageIndex property, the ImageKey is automatically set to an empty string ("").
