    Hi Dennis, how can we use the Framework with Listbox control (not Listbox)? I can’t see any possiblities for the Listbox control. Thank you very much for your answer.

    • Quick solution is use normal ListBox and hide scrollbar.

    Sir I know you had already replied to this question but I couldn’t find it because of lot of comments. Can you please tell me about the extension you have used for navigation ?

    Hello Sir,
    Please consider the following points about metroTextBox.

    1. You need to add this line of code before AutoCompleteStringCollection method to show String Collection Editor.

    [Editor(“System.Windows.Forms.Design.ListControlStringCollectionEditor, System.Design, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a”, typeof(UITypeEditor))]

    2. When I increase the height of metroTextBox its cursor and text stays at top instead of center.

    3. it would be good if suggestions of textbox look like the dropdown list of combo box.

    Hi Dennis,
    thanks a lot for your great Framework.
    I’m using it with SharpDevelop and i only have Problems with MetroTextBox.
    When i’m trying to put one to the Designer SharpDevelop crashes…
    When i’m adding it “manually” in the code without switching to designer view, it’s compiling fine
    and no probems.
    Do you have any idea why SharpDevelop is crashing when a TextBox is used?
    It’s the same with your SampleProject. It’s building but as soon as i’m switching to Desinger, sharp develop crashes.
    I’m using latest Version 1.3.5 of your librarys.
    Thanks a lot and best regards

    Hello Dennis,

    It’s possible to implement RichTextBox with Component Editor (Theme, Style)?

    It’s will be helpful,
    Thanks for your attention.

    • I think it is not possible right now. But you can customize it a bit to make it work. like adding it inside a metro panel and change the font to seguo ui

    • I am about to release it but I am having some problem after compiling the DLL’s. Still checking whats causing the issue.

      • Malachi Witt

    Hi Dennis,

    Love this Framework, but I’m wondering why the MetroComobBox doesn’t seem to support any AutoComplete options. The properties are available, but there seems to be no method of actually typing into the box, so SuggestAppend etc becomes irrelevant.

    Hi Dennis,
    when the new listview will be ready

    • Tentative release is on Monday, together with MetroMessageBox localization. It is not perfect yet, but working.

      • Mauro Rog

        Great Dennis.
        I look forward.

        Dennis you thought something about my controls?

  • Nick Grobler

    Hi Dennis,

    An unhandled exception of type ‘System.InvalidOperationException’ occurred in System.Windows.Forms.dll

    How to change the font of columns and items in the listview? This option exists?

  • Attila Török

    Is it possible to change the backcolor of the rows? or the font style?
    I have this code:

    foreach (Requests req in myRequests)
    ListViewItem item = new ListViewItem(req.Start.ToShortDateString());
    item.Font = new Font(item.Font, FontStyle.Regular);

    if (req.Status == ‘D’)
    item.BackColor = Color.Red;
    item.Font = new Font(item.Font, FontStyle.Strikeout);
    else if (req.Status == ‘A’)
    item.BackColor = Color.LightGreen;
    else item.Font = new Font(item.Font, FontStyle.Bold);


    It’s working when I use the default ListView of .NET.

    Best regards,

    Hi Dennis,
    I’m having problem with the contents cause it keep having “…” and not sure how to display the full Text.

    • Hugh

      Were you able to resolve the issue?

    • Juvis Kristofferson Mueda

      Display of the text appears to be entirely dependent on the width size of column(0) or equals to 1st column where you normally put the listview item . I don’t know how to fix it though. Workaround I did is to place the data data column with the longest text values into column (0)
