How can I check whether a listview has text in a particular row?Is there a method like
if(istviewname.Items[row no].Text ==" ")
else if(istviewname.Items[row no].Text !=" ")
{ code}
Can anyone help me?

Hello Lakshith you are most welcome on DANIWEB!
Of course there is a method! You've just wrtten it.
Two remarks:
***> " " is text, it is a string containing one char: the space. Use "" or string.Empty here.
***> because you test for two opposite things you don't have to test them both. If one is true then the other is false.
Use this:

if(istviewname.Items[row no].Text == String.Empty)
{ code}

Hi Thanx 4 da help dannbe.But it ddnt wrk.When i entered only 2 rows the 3rd row gave an exception.Cn u gv me anothr tip?

How many rows are there in your listview?

well there are 15 columns in Access database like Amount1,Invoice no 1,Description1,Amount2,nvoice no 2,Description2...upto Amount5,Invoice no 5,Description5 .The maximum no fo rows i wnt 2 enter is therefore 5 and the minimum is 1.Error ocuurs when i want 2 enter rows in between 1 and 5 i.e when i enter only 2 rows or 3 or 4 or 5

Try to write decent English this becomes important in cases like this, where you are discussing row 2 to 5. (or should I say: row 2 2 5?)
In answering my question you mention something about columns, so I just pose my question again: How many rows are there in your listview?

Sorry I overlooked the word Access db. I think in that case you are better of with a DataGridView instead of a ListView

There are 5 rows.But in my application I dont insert data into all 5 rows eveytime.So the Exception comes when I dont insert data into all 5 rows.


I presume that your program uses DataTable. Here is sample,

DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            dt.Rows.Add(1, "A");
            dt.Rows.Add(2, "B");

            listView1.View = View.Details;
            int i;
            // Header
            for (i = 0; i < dt.Columns.Count; i++)

            // Rows
            for (i = 0; i < dt.Rows.Count; i++)
                string[] ar = new string[dt.Columns.Count];
                for (int j = 0; j < dt.Columns.Count; j++)
                    ar[j] = dt.Rows[i][j].ToString();

                ListViewItem item = new ListViewItem(ar);
