Better ListView

Better ListView is a replacement control for the regular .NET list view control. Better ListView has significantly more features and improved behavior. It is lightweight and always uses the system theme (including Aero support). It does not inherit from the regular list view control and is therefore very flexible. Better ListView has no dependencies and is easy to deploy (a single 80kB DLL when compressed). Better ListView is optimized for speed (100,000+ items) and includes drag & drop support, sorting, image support, checkboxes and more.

Why choose the Better ListView control?

  • Written from scratch in pure managed code (C#)
  • Does not inherit from the regular ListView
  • Light-weight, flexible and powerful
  • Very little learning time needed - mostly compatible with the regular ListView control
  • No dependencies, single DLL deployment (80kB when the DLL is compressed)
  • Optimized and fast
  • Used in real world applications by thousands of users (= thoroughly tested)
  • Attention to detail (especially in behavior)
  • Always uses current system theme...
