  • No, you cannot define controls in a List View column, nor is there a feature to associate icons with a field (except with image controls on a custom form, but that won't be replicated in a List View).

    If you want to validate data, trap the CustomPropertyChange event in code or set a formula for the control that's bound to a field via the Validation tab for the control's properties while in design mode for a custom form.
