How to stretch a Border to fill the width of a ListViewItem?

I have a ListView as follows:

<ListView ItemsSource="{Binding SerialNumbers}" SelectionMode="Multiple" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch">
    <ListView.ItemTemplate>
        <DataTemplate>
            <Border Background="Red" Padding="14 5" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch">
                <TextBlock HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Text="{Binding Number}" />
                <behaviours:Interaction.Triggers>
                    <behaviours:EventTrigger EventName="MouseLeftButtonUp">
                        <behaviours:InvokeCommandAction Command="{Binding Path=DataContext.SerialNumberSelectedCommand, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=UserControl}}" CommandParameter="{Binding}" />
                    </behaviours:EventTrigger>
                </behaviours:Interaction.Triggers>
            </Border>
         </DataTemplate>
    </ListView.ItemTemplate>
</ListView>

I want the Border to take the full width as the ListViewItem, but it is not happening. I’ve tried adding HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" to the ListView, Border, and the TextBlock. It isn’t working. It currently looks like this.

border not stretching to full width

How can I stretch the Border to get the full width of the ListViewItem.

I want to achieve this because I have a MouseLeftButtonUp event linked to the Border, which will call a command. As the Border is only the red part, it will only be called on clicking the red part. I want it to be called on clicking the total width of the ListViewItem.

>Solution :

In my opinion, the cleanest way to achieve it is to set HorizontalContentAlignment to the ListViewItem. You can easily achieve this using a style, like this:

<ListView>
  <ListView.ItemTemplate>
    <DataTemplate>
      <Border Background="Red" >
        <TextBlock Text="{Binding}"/>
      </Border>
     </DataTemplate>
   </ListView.ItemTemplate>
   <ListView.ItemContainerStyle>
     <Style TargetType="ListViewItem">
       <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Stretch" />
     </Style>
   </ListView.ItemContainerStyle>
 </ListView>
