ListView Control

Sorting Items

To make the list view sort its items when the user clicks on a column header, use this code in the ListView_ColumnClick event.

With ListView1 '// change to the name of the list view
    Static iLast As Integer, iCur As Integer
    .Sorted = True
    iCur = ColumnHeader.Index - 1
    If iCur = iLast Then .SortOrder = IIf(.SortOrder = 1, 0, 1)
    .SortKey = iCur
    iLast = iCur
End With
