    Is there a way to disable keyboard navigation in the RadListView control when it's in IconsView? I want to have other keys fire the KeyDown event (e.g. Del) but not the keyboard arrow keys.

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can achieve your requirement by creating a custom RadListView and overriding its OnKeyDown event handler:
    public class CustomListView : RadListView
        public override string ThemeClassName 
                return typeof(RadListView).FullName; 
        protected override void OnKeyDown(KeyEventArgs e)
            if (e.KeyData == Keys.Left || e.KeyData == Keys.Right ||
                e.KeyData == Keys.Up || e.KeyData == Keys.Down)

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
