Using Icons With Listview In Detail Mode?

Feb 10, 2010

I have been trying to create a listview in detail mode which has 2 images (a light is on and one with the light off which represents a boolean value) I have gotten some code which populates the Listview during runtime but i have tried various ways to get the images into this without any success, google has been particularly useless and most examples seem to involve creating an array for each row(great if you have all the data in the first place, my project will perform like a log, it will show an Id, a Name and then 2 colums which should have on/off icons in them.

This is my sample code which works by creating a ListViewItem, adding the items for the row and then adding it. When i did this on my project however it showed nothing in the view (presume i need to refresh it after each add?)

Public Class Form1
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

VS 2010 Make Listview Icons?

Jan 28, 2011

I am trying my hand at .Net 2010. I played around with vb6 for years but now it has come time to do .Net. So I am making a Explorer type app where I have a treeview on the left and a listview on the right. I have all that working fine I now want to add icons to the files listed in the listview. My app calls function in a class file and it populates the listviewHow do you add (dynamically) the icons from the files shown? Below is the function in the class file I have, not the form file.

Public Function ListFoldersFiles(ByVal path As String, ByVal lvTemp As ListView, Optional ByVal sExtFilter As String = "*.*")
' Create a reference to the current directory.

Populate Listview With Filenames (including Associated Icons)

Aug 19, 2009

Dim subfileEntries() As String = Directory.GetFiles(FolderPath)
For Each f As String In subfileEntries
If (File.GetAttributes(f) And FileAttributes.Hidden) <> FileAttributes.Hidden And (File.GetAttributes(f) And FileAttributes.System) <> FileAttributes.System Then


The issue I'm running into is that 1 folder I have has 812 files in it and it takes a good 20 seconds or more to load the files with their Extracted icons.
Furthermore, I ran into one instance where a .pdf file was given a system icon (sort of like the icon a .bat file would receive with the two gears) instead of the Adobe PDF icon.

So, my questions are: 1) Is there a better way to load files so that it will be able to get the icons and display them in the Listview faster?

2) Is there a better way of getting associated icons since the VS built in option seems fallible.

Listview Not Showing Icons When Launched From Desktop Icon

Oct 10, 2009

I have created a project that uses a listview associated to an imagelist (LargeImagelist, I have set the size as 100 x 75 and 32 bit depth), that displays information from a database along with an image from the image list. My listview is set to tilemode so that I can control the size of the tiles to get two columns of six. The image list is populated when the form is loaded from all the images in a specific folder, this part is working appropriately as I can get a picturebox working consistently that references an image from the imagelist.

When I open a form in my application and I maximize it, the Icon and the ControlBox are merged in the menu of the MDI parent where I open the form in. That is perfectly normal.

But when I close that form and open an other and also maximize it, I get two icons and two control boxes in my menu. When I close that form and open an other again and maximize it on it's turn, I get 3 icons and 3 control boxes  in my menu. When I close the maximized form shouldn't the icon and the controlboxes dissapear?

ListView Rowheight Varies - Using ListView Control, With SmallIcons Style ?

Mar 15, 2012

I'm using ListView control, with SmallIcons style in VB.NET. Icons are loaded fine, but when I start to scroll ListView down or up from scrollbar (clicking from arrows), rowheight drops to about half from normal in next 20-30 rows below/above upper/bottom row (depends from the scrolling position). After 1-2 seconds, ListView is "refreshed" and scrolling continues normally. When focus in on the ListView and I'm moving up/down with arrow keys or PageUp/PageDown, everything is normal. Any suggestions, what is happening? SmallIcons size is 16 * 16. Is it compulsory to set "Blank icon" with SmallIcon size to all rows, when adding them or what? Wasn't like that in VB6, how is it in VB.NET?

VS 2008 - How To Access Listview Data - Program That Contains A (listview) Control

Sep 22, 2009

I have a vb-2008 program that contains a (listview) control.

View = details
AllowColumnReorder = true

Lets say the table has 3 columns (a,b,c) and 1 row of data.

a b c
1 2 3

I want the user to be able to re-arrange the columns (by dragging the column headers) before printing the contents of the table.

c a b
3 1 2

Statements like:

.. ListViewX.Columns(2).Text
.. ListViewX.Columns.Item(2).Text
.. ListViewX.Items(0).SubItems(2).ToString

Give the column-name (c) and cell-contents (3) of the origional table .. not the (3rd) column (b) of the re-arranged table.

How can i get the column-name and cell-contents of the (3rd) column of the re-arranged table?

ListView Capable Of Displaying Files In All Available Views?

Mar 13, 2009

I have a ListView capable of displaying files in all available views (Large Icon, Small Icon, Tile, List, Details). Now I am wondering how to properly use the SmallImagelist and LargeImagelist for the small and large icons...the ListView is actually a modified listview (inheriting from ListView), using a modified ListViewItemCollection.In this custom ListViewItemCollection I use the Add override function to add a few details to my ListViewItem: Public Overrides Function Add(ByVal value As System.Windows.Forms.ListViewItem) As System.Windows.Forms.ListViewItem
Dim file As clsTexture = TryCast(value, clsTexture)
If file IsNot Nothing Then


I realize it is a pretty complex post to read and will probably not get very many answers, but I really want to make the most of my Listviews...Of course, one work around is to just always use the LargeIcon which then gets scaled down automatically when the SmallImagelist is used but I am pretty sure there are icons that are very different in Large or Small view...
