The ASP.NET MVC ListView Control is a list-like interface that allows you to select an item or multiple items. It represents data in an interactive hierarchical structure across different layouts and views.

Data binding

Powerful data binding allows data to be loaded from an array of primitive data, JSON data collections, or remote data sources. The control supports complex data with field mapping; different kinds of data services such as OData, OData V4, and web API; and data formats such as XML, JSON, JSONP, CSV, and HTML tables.

UI virtualization

ASP.NET MVC ListView supports UI virtualization to provide better performance while loading huge amounts of data. This loads a fixed number of items irrespective of data volume and displays the relevant data.

Sortable list

Sort data programmatically in ascending or descending order. Also use custom sorting logic.

Group list

Group ListView data programmatically. You can identify a group name from group headers in the view. Also use custom sorting logic.

Multilevel ListView

The ASP.NET MVC ListView represents a nested data object structure as a list of lists. The initial screen displays the first-level list items and the next level is displayed when interacting with them.


Single selection

When a user clicks or taps an item, ASP.NET MVC ListView enables the selection of the list item by default.


The ASP.NET MVC ListView Control supports multiple selection through checkboxes on the right or left of the list items. This helps users select or clear a series of items.


Users can disable the ListView selection by handling events. Preserve and restore the selected values in the ListView to help users continue their work from a previously saved state.

Multiline text

Arrange the list item content with multiline text, icons, and avatars.

UI customization

Completely customize the ListView header, list item, and group header using template options. This helps users arrange their content in flexible formats like image view, multiline text view, and mixed mode.
