public int IndentCount { get; set; }

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.

ListView indentedListView;

private void 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.
    ImageList list = new ImageList();
    list.Images.Add(new Bitmap(typeof(Button), "Button.bmp"));

    // SmallImageList must be set when using IndentCount.
    indentedListView.SmallImageList = list;

    ListViewItem item1 = new ListViewItem("Click", 0);
    item1.IndentCount = 1;
    ListViewItem item2 = new ListViewItem("OK", 0);
    item2.IndentCount = 2;
    ListViewItem item3 = new ListViewItem("Cancel", 0);
    item3.IndentCount = 3;
    indentedListView.Items.AddRange(new ListViewItem[] { item1, item2, item3 });

    // Add the controls to the form.
