Restrict Movement of ListViewItem from One ListView to Another based on Condition

Introduction

In this blog we will see how we can restrict ListViewItem movement from one ListView to another based on condition.

Step 1: Create windows forms application


Form1.cs

  1. using System;  
  2. using System.Collections.Generic;  
  3. using System.ComponentModel;  
  4. using System.Data;  
  5. using System.Drawing;  
  6. using System.Linq;  
  7. using System.Text;  
  8. using System.Threading.Tasks;  
  9. using System.Windows.Forms;  
  10. namespace RestrictOneListViewtoAnother   
  11. {  
  12.     public partial class Form1: Form   
  13.     {  
  14.         public Form1()   
  15.         {  
  16.             InitializeComponent();  
  17.         }  
  18.         private void btnForward_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)  
  19.         {  
  20.             foreach(ListViewItem item in listView1.SelectedItems)   
  21.             {  
  22.                 if (item.Text != "Andy")  
  23.                 {  
  24.                     listView1.Items.Remove(item);  
  25.                     listView2.Items.Add(item);  
  26.                 }  
  27.             }  
  28.         }  
  29.         private void btnBackward_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)   
  30.         {  
  31.             foreach(ListViewItem item in listView2.SelectedItems)  
  32.             {  
  33.                 listView2.Items.Remove(item);  
  34.                 listView1.Items.Add(item);  
  35.             }  
  36.         }  
  37.         SchoolManagementEntities objSchoolManagementEntities = new SchoolManagementEntities();  
  38.         private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)   
  39.         {  
  40.             var query = from r in objSchoolManagementEntities.Students select r;  
  41.             foreach(var r in query)  
  42.             {  
  43.                 listView1.Items.Add(r.FirstName);  
  44.             }  
  45.         }  
  46.     }  
  47. }  
Output of the application looks like this

In this blog we have seen how we can restrict ListViewItem movement from one ListView to another based on condition.

Happy coding.
