    Non-clickable Header for ListView

    I need to set the column headers of a ListView to be non-clickable (as I
    don't want to implement any sorting or anything else for the ListView on user
    clicking on the column headers).

    I tried to use GridViewColumn.HeaderTemplate elements for my columns and
    define a custom header template using TextBlock elements, as I though this
    would replace the default "button"-like textblocks added by default; but this
    doesn't work well for some reason, i.e. my style is shown on the header
    (including any settings I set up for the custom textblocks), but the headers
    are still clickable.

    It seems that the clickable behavior for the header is added by a parent
    container of the stylable column header (such as the
    GridViewHeaderRowPresenter), so this must be resolved in another way. My next
    thought then was to use a custom template for the whole ListView that will
    use the GridViewHeaderRowPresenter and ItemsPresenter in a stack panel, and
    then styling te GridViewHeaderRowPresenter somehow. But I didn't know how to
    style the GridViewHeaderRowPresenter object either to remove the button
    behavior generated for the column headers, and now I'm out of ideas.

    Can someonw guide me on this? (I acknowledge I'm not very much experienced
    with WPF, the resolution could be simple, but I didn't yet think of it!)
    Thank you in advance for any ideas.

    I forgot to say, I'm using the GridView view for the ListView instance to
    show up columns.
