Public Property IndentCount As Integer

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The number of small image widths by which to indent the ListViewItem.

Exception Condition

When setting IndentCount, the number specified is less than 0.

The IndentCount property can be used only when the View property of the containing ListView is set to Details, and the SmallImageList property of the ListView is set.

The following code example demonstrates how to set the IndentCount property. To run this example, paste the following code into a Windows Form and call the InitializeIndentedListViewItems method from the form's constructor or Load event-handling method.

Private indentedListView As ListView

Private Sub InitializeIndentedListViewItems() 
    indentedListView = New ListView()
    indentedListView.Width = 200

    ' View must be set to Details to use IndentCount.
    indentedListView.View = View.Details
    indentedListView.Columns.Add("Indented Items", 150)

    ' Create an image list and add an image.
    Dim list As New ImageList()
    list.Images.Add(New Bitmap(GetType(Button), "Button.bmp"))

    ' SmallImageList must be set when using IndentCount.
    indentedListView.SmallImageList = list

    Dim item1 As New ListViewItem("Click", 0)
    item1.IndentCount = 1
    Dim item2 As New ListViewItem("OK", 0)
    item2.IndentCount = 2
    Dim item3 As New ListViewItem("Cancel", 0)
    item3.IndentCount = 3
    indentedListView.Items.AddRange(New ListViewItem() {item1, item2, item3})

    ' Add the controls to the form.

End Sub 'InitializeIndentedListViewItems
