Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public Color BackColor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color

A Color that represents the background color of the subitem's text.

You can use the BackColor property to change the color displayed behind the subitem text. This property can be used if you want to use different background and foreground color combinations (using the ForeColor property to set the foreground color) to differentiate one subitem from another. For example, you could set the BackColor property to Red to identify subitems that display a negative value.

If the UseItemStyleForSubItems property of the ListViewItem that owns the subitem is set to true, setting this property has no effect.
