There is very little to learn, it works the same way as the regular list view, just all classes, structures, enums etc. have a "Better" prefix.
But! Before downloading the Express edition, consider downloading the full version instead. It comes with fully functional trial and has lots of additional extremely useful extra features and improvements.
It's an odd thing when you're inspired by a form component, but Component Owl with their Better ListView has done it. Love its native feel.Daniel N, USA
In addition to creating a new List View control to incorporate broader flexibility and functionality, Better ListView could also be called Fixed ListView, as it corrects a number of annoying problems with the standard List View that Microsoft delivers to Visual Studio customers.DevProConnections.com Review
