B. How can I programmatically highlight a listview control as though a user clicked on an item in the collection?
A. Try setting the backcolor in a manner similar to this:
Dim C As New System.Drawing.Color() ListView1.BackColor = C.Aqua
In .NET, the backcolor property is an object, not merely a value.
B. Try selecting the Listview control first like this:
ListView1.Select() ListView1.Items(1).Selected = True
After selecting the listview, then set the Selected property of the proper item to True.
