Returns the layout-style of the argument. The value can be one of the four symbols :report, :list, :small-icon, or :large-icon. The value indicates the style in which the list-view control is to be drawn. These are the familiar alternate layouts of the Windows File Explorer. The default style is :report, which is the only style that shows the column values that are stored in the value-plist property of each list-view-item. The :report style also includes headers for the columns. The :list style is similar to :report in that it shows the list-view-items as a single vertical list, with the item's small icon beside the item's name, but it excludes the column values and column headers. The :small-icon style is similar to the :list style in that it shows the small icon of each item beside the item's name, but the items are arranged in a rectangular array rather than in a list to make better use of the available space. The :large-icon style is similar to the :small-icon style except that it shows each item's large icon. In the :small-icon and :large-icon styles, the alignment property of the list-view determines how the icons are arranged into a rectangular array.
See the description of the list-view control.
