    selecting an item in vb.net ListView

    Hi everyone,

    I am using visual basic .net 2008.
    I have a problem selecting an item in a ListView.
    my problem is that i have set a value in the Tag property. Tag now contains the ID of the item.

    Suppose now the Tag of the ListView item contains the value '2'
    i want to select the Item in the ListView with the Tag=2

    how do i do that? Please help me.

    You'll need to loop through all the items and test the Tag of each one. When you find one that has the value 2 you select that item and exit the loop:
    vb.net Code:
    1. For Each item As ListViewItem In myListView.Items
    2.     If CInt(item.Tag) = 2 Then
    3.         item.Selected = True
    4.         Exit For
    5.     End If
    6. Next
    If you would want to deselect any other items that might already be selected then you can do this:
    vb.net Code:
    1. For Each item As ListViewItem In myListView.Items
    2.     item.Selected = (CInt(item.Tag) = 2)
    3. Next
    Note that both these code snippets rely on the fact that all items have an Integer assigned to their Tag property.
