ListView Table

The lines of a listview are not treated as individual controls, but they are part of a listview that functions as a control. The ListView table defines the values for all listviews.

The ListView table has the following columns.

Column Type Key Nullable
Property Identifier Y N
Order Integer Y N
Value Formatted N N
Text Formatted N Y
Binary_ Identifier N Y




A named property to be tied to this item. All the items tied to the same property become part of the same listview.


A positive integer used to determine the ordering of the items that appear in a single listview list. The integers do not have to be consecutive. If a listview is defined as ordered, then all the items should have an Ordering value. If the listview is defined as unordered, then this column is ignored.


The value string associated with this item. Selecting the line sets the associated property to this value.


The visible, localizable text to be assigned to the item. If this entry or the entire column is missing, then the text defaults to the corresponding entry in Value.


The image data for the icon. This is a foreign key to the Binary table.


The contents of the Value and Text fields are formatted by the MsiFormatRecord function when the control is created, therefore they can contain any expression that the MsiFormatRecord function can interpret. The formatting occurs only when the control is created, and it is not updated if a property involved in the expression is modified during the life of the control.
