The Point at the upper-left corner of the ListViewItem.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The Position is set when the containing ListView is in virtual mode.

The Position property should be set after the ListViewItem and containing ListView are constructed. Changing the Position property when the containing ListView is in Details or List view will have no effect on the position of the items. Also, the Position property will automatically change when the View property of the containing ListView is changed from SmallIcon, LargeIcon, or Tile view to List or Details. When the ListView is in SmallIcon, LargeIcon, or Tile view, setting the Position property for an item will cause the other items contained in the ListView to be rearranged.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Position property of a ListViewItem. To run this example, paste the following code into a Windows Form and call the InitializePositionedListViewItems from the form's Load event-handling method. Click the button to see the items repositioned.
