    Has anybody an idea, how to paint image overlays over the listitems? One solution could be to create the item image dynamically, but I am looking for a better solution (less resource usage and faster processing). The grid view has the rowpaint event, but I don't find such a event for the list view.

    Hi Tom,

    It is easy to draw an overlayed image in list view elements. You just have to handle the VisualItemFormatting event and set the TextImageRelation property to Overlay. Here is a sample:
    void view_VisualItemFormatting(object sender, ListViewVisualItemEventArgs e)
        e.VisualItem.Image = Resources.file;
        e.VisualItem.ImageAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter;
        e.VisualItem.TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.Overlay;

    I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, I will be glad to help.

    Best wishes,
