Select item programmatically


Unlike a listbox control, the list view control does not has a SetCurSel() or the SetSel() function. To achieve that, we can use the following statement.
m_listctrl.SetItemState( rownum,LVIS_SELECTED | LVIS_FOCUSED , LVIS_SELECTED | LVIS_FOCUSED);
If you dont use the LVIS_FOCUSED flag and the control allows muliple selection, then you will likely end up with two items highlighted - one that has the focus and one that you just selected.

Another gotcha is that if you do not set the LVS_SHOWSELALWAYS style for the ListView control, you dont see the highlighting till the control gets focus.
