Hi haonhien,


What problem exactly do you have?

If you need help with ListView specifically, I'm sure there a lot of sources and examples with that.

If you have trouble getting to the packets' values, I suggest trying to use a simple Unit Test or a Console Application to print what you need and debug it there.

Being Coordinator is a tough job to answer every queries. Brickner is right that there are a lot of solutions available. For future please refer, (i remember these 2 now). These are quite good site and their traffic rankings at are very high.


But i will try to write code with reference to your snippet. I assume that you have created the columns of ListView from the VS GUI designer. Dont forget to select the "detailed view" of ListView u have created.



private void OnUpdatePacketList(Packet p)
            //parse your packet here 

            ListViewItem item = new ListViewItem("NewRow & Column1"); // u have to create every row with ListViewItem
            item.SubItems.Add("currentRow Column 2 data");
            item.SubItems.Add("currentRow Column 3 data"); //etc



I hope this helps
