About presenting lists
You can choose a variety of ways to present lists in your
- ListBoxes and
PictureListBoxes display available choices that can be used for
invoking an action or viewing and displaying data.
- DropDownListBoxes and DropDownPictureListBoxes also
display available choices to the user. However, you can make them
editable to the user. DropDownListBoxes are text-only lists; DropDownPictureListBoxes
display a picture associated with each item.
- ListView controls present lists in a combination
of graphics and text. You can allow the user to add, delete, edit,
and rearrange ListView items, or you can use them to invoke an action.
TreeView controls TreeView controls also combine graphics and text in lists.
The difference is that TreeView controls show the hierarchical relationship
among the TreeView items. As with ListView controls, you can allow
the user to add, delete, edit, and rearrange TreeView items. You
can also use them to invoke actions.
