I set my ListView properties like this
ListView1.View = View.List
ListView1.FullRowSelect = True
ListView1.GridLines = True

But still when I select any item in ListView, the full row is not highlighted. It only highlight the icon with it's text. Is there any way I can highlight the whole row when selected? I already do some research but all I found are mention to set the FullRowSelected to True but that seems not working for me.

This is WinForms I assume?

Yes. It's a WinForms. Do you have any idea?

Nope, but if you switch to WPF I can help you :laugh:

Refer below link this might be helpful to you,

Try below, just put in an event to your list view and get the index selected and replaced the zero below.

ListView1.Items[0].Selected = True

Thank you for your reply but I already did that and it isn't working too :(
I even set the ListView1.Focus() but still the same result.

Should this really be a "ListView1.View = View.List" or are you looking for Details?

I tried below on my formload and it was able to highlight.

ListView1.View = View.List
ListView1.FullRowSelect = True
ListView1.GridLines = True

For index As Integer = 0 To 3
ListView1.Items.Add("Number" & index.ToString()).SubItems.Add("text")

ListView1.Items(1).Selected = True

Here is my coding that I currently use.

ListView1.View = View.List
ImageList1.ImageSize = New Size(32, 45)
ListView1.SmallImageList = ImageList1
ListView1.FullRowSelect = True
ListView1.GridLines = True

For i = 0 To 9
Title = myList(0, i, 0) 'Path of image title inside my array
Img = myList(0, i, 2) 'Path of image url inside my array
If Title <> "" Then
ImageList1.Images.Add("imgKey" & i, New Icon(Img))
ListView1.Items.Add(Title, "imgKey" & i).Selected = True
End If

Or maybe I do it wrong?

Never mind, it solved already. I just add column in my ListView and set the FullRowSelect to True and view as Details. By the way, thank you so much for your response. I appreciate it so much :)
if (this.listViewProjects.Items.Count > 0)
this.listViewProjects.Items[0].Selected = true;
this.listViewProjects.Items[0].Focused = true;
this.listViewProjects.FocusedItem = this.listViewProjects.Items[0];

I know the post is old, but this actually works if you only need the 1st item highlighted.

But what if I needed to highlight all the items that have a check mark?
Any suggestions?
I use this in DoDataExchange
