RetrieveVirtualItemEventArgs.Item Property

Gets or sets the item retrieved from the cache.

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

public ListViewItem Item { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ListViewItem
The ListViewItem retrieved from the cache.

When handling the RetrieveVirtualItem event, set the Item property to the item you wish to be retrieved.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the ListView.RetrieveVirtualItem event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type ListView named ListView1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the ListView.RetrieveVirtualItem event.

private void ListView1_RetrieveVirtualItem(Object sender, RetrieveVirtualItemEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ItemIndex", e.ItemIndex );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Item", e.Item );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "RetrieveVirtualItem Event" );
}
