I need a way to automatically scroll to a selected item in a list view. For example: There are 10 items in the list view and only the first 5 are visible. A function selects the 9th item and the list view should automatically scroll to the 9th item. I tried using the following code.
listView1.Items(8).Selected = True

But it doesn't work. Please help

I've went through the code again and found out something new. It seems like the list view is actually selecting the item but it doesn't highlight the selected item in the list view and it also does not scroll to the selected item.

I tried refresh and update methods in the list view but it does not seem to be working. Please help

sorry mate the updated answer doesn't seem to be working. I don't know what's going on. The code I have given in my question worked when I run it the first time. But after a while it doesn't work. I've debugged the application and it even goes through every line. Please help!!!

All I can say is weird!

In WPF, you can use ScrollIntoView.


UPDATE: After your updated question, since its a WinForms application,
I tried in this way:


Worked for me. Did it work for you?

It's a windows forms application. So that doesn't help. But thanks anyway.

yes, it works for me.
ListView_ProgressStatus.Items[ListView_ProgressStatus.Items.Count - 1].EnsureVisible();

It works. Thanks
Here is another solution:

ListView1.TopItem = ListView1.Items(8)
