How do I set the GroupView control with no items selected when the button view is true ?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GroupView |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


When ButtonView is set to true, user cannot set the selected index to -1 to make it as not selected. As a alternative, set the buttonview to false as a default and in GroupView's MouseDown event or GroupViewItemSelected event set buttonview to true.

Here is the code snippet:


private void groupView1_MouseDown(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)


this.groupView1.ButtonView = true;



Private Sub groupView1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs)

Me.groupView1.ButtonView = True

End Sub
