Click or drag to resize

ShellListView Class

This control displays the contents of a folder in a listview. When the user right clicks on a folder, it will automatically show the context menu. Use to Path property to get or set the current folder, use the SpecialFolder property to set a special folder like the Control Panel. The Filter property can be used to filter certain files by extension. For more advanced filtering options use the FilterRegularExpression property in code. The FullRefresh method refreshes the displayed information. You can synchronize a ShellListView with a ShellTreeView by using the ShellControlConnector property. By default, a double click is handled by the control and it tries to perform the default action for the selected object.


Items that are contained in the list are of type ShellListItem. This applies to the Items and the SelectedItems properties.


Sorting is handled automatically by this list when column headers are clicked. If custom sorting is needed, an IComparer can be assigned to property ListViewItemSorter. See Sort for an example.

public class ShellListView : JamBaseShellListView, 
	ISupportInitializeNotification, ISupportInitialize

The ShellListView type exposes the following members.

Public methodShellListView
Initializes a new instance of the ShellListView class.
Public propertyActiveImageList
Gets the ImageList that is currently used.
(Inherited from JamBaseShellListView.)
Public propertyAllowDrag
Use this property to turn on or off drag support with the Windows Explorer.
(Inherited from JamBaseShellListView.)
Public propertyAllowDrop
Use this property to turn on or off drop support with the Windows Explorer.
(Inherited from JamBaseShellListView.)
Public propertyAutomaticRefresh
Set this property to true if you like the component to be refreshed automatically if a Drive is added or removed. This property is directly connected to the Enabled property of an internal instance of ShellChangeNotifier.
(Inherited from JamBaseShellListView.)
Protected propertyAutomaticRefresh_Internal
Indicates whether automatic refresh is enabled or not.
(Inherited from JamBaseShellListView.)
Public propertyAutoScrollDelay
The delay in milliseconds after that the control scrolls automatically during a drag and drop operation. A value of 0 disables the auto scroll feature.
Public propertyAutoSizeColumn

(Inherited from JamBaseShellListView.)
Public propertyCode exampleBackgroundContextMenu
Gets or sets the ContextMenuStrip that is displayed if no item of the listview is under the cursor if the user clicks the right mouse button. If this value is null, no ContextMenu is shown.
(Overrides SystemListViewBackgroundContextMenu.)
Public propertyCheckBoxes
Use this property to turn on or off the checkboxes for file and folder selection. The checkboxes will only work, if a ShellControlConnector has been assigned to the ShellControlConnector property of this component. It will automatically synchronize the selection state of the items in multiple shell controls linked together with this ShellControlConnector.
(Inherited from JamBaseShellListView.)
Public propertyCheckBoxMode
Use this property to display checkboxes for the control.
(Inherited from JamBaseShellListView.)
Public propertyCheckedItems

The "Opening" and "Closing" events of the ContextMenuStrip will be raised if the ContextMenu "Popup"/"Collapse" event occurs. For menu items only the "Click" event is available. All other events are not available. All ToolStripMenuItems are converted, and ToolStripSeparators are recognized. The ShortCut Keys defined in a ToolStripMenuItem are not converted. If you would like to have the ShortCut-Keys, leave this Property null, instead set the ContextMenu property to your menu explicitly.
