The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Represents the base class for views that define the appearance of data in a ListView control.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Controls

System_CAPS_protmethod ViewBase

Initializes a new instance of the ViewBase class.


Gets the object that is associated with the style for the view mode.


Gets the DependencyObjectType that wraps the CLR type of this instance. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Gets the Dispatcher this DispatcherObject is associated with. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)


Gets a value that indicates whether this instance is currently sealed (read-only).(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Gets the style to use for the items in the view mode.

System_CAPS_pubmethod CheckAccess

Determines whether the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.(Inherited from DispatcherObject.)

System_CAPS_protmethod ClearItem

Removes all bindings and styling that are set for an item.

System_CAPS_pubmethod ClearValue

Clears the local value of a property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyProperty identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod ClearValue

Clears the local value of a read-only property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyPropertyKey. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod CoerceValue

Coerces the value of the specified dependency property. This is accomplished by invoking any CoerceValueCallback function specified in property metadata for the dependency property as it exists on the calling DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod Equals

Determines whether a provided DependencyObject is equivalent to the current DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_protmethod Finalize

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethod GetAutomationPeer

Is called when a ListView control creates a ListViewAutomationPeer for its .

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetHashCode

Gets a hash code for this DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetLocalValueEnumerator

Creates a specialized enumerator for determining which dependency properties have locally set values on this DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetType

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetValue

Returns the current effective value of a dependency property on this instance of a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod InvalidateProperty

Re-evaluates the effective value for the specified dependency property(Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_protmethod MemberwiseClone

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethod OnPropertyChanged

Invoked whenever the effective value of any dependency property on this DependencyObject has been updated. The specific dependency property that changed is reported in the event data. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_protmethod PrepareItem

Prepares an item in the view for display, by setting bindings and styles.

System_CAPS_pubmethod ReadLocalValue

Returns the local value of a dependency property, if it exists. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod SetCurrentValue

Sets the value of a dependency property without changing its value source. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod SetValue

Sets the local value of a dependency property, specified by its dependency property identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod SetValue

Sets the local value of a read-only dependency property, specified by the DependencyPropertyKey identifier of the dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_protmethod ShouldSerializeProperty

Returns a value that indicates whether serialization processes should serialize the value for the provided dependency property.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod ToString

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod VerifyAccess

Enforces that the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.(Inherited from DispatcherObject.)

The GridView view mode is derived from the ViewBase class. You typically use a GridView with the ListView control to lay out data in columns. You can also use the ViewBase class to create custom view modes for a ListView.

The property defines the view mode that the ListView control uses.
