Total Hit (1719) Microsoft "forgot" to provide the ListView control with the GetVisibleCount property, as it did, for example, with the TreeView control.

Prevent dragging elements in a ListView control
Total Hit (1168) The ListView control doesn't expose any property that lets you disable the dragging of its elements.

This is a link to a different site Sorting ListView ListItems Using Callbacks
Total Hit (437) Sorting numeric values with the ListView control's built-in sort mechanism has always left much to be desired.
