Is there a way to derive a class from CListCtrl and make a CListView use
No, but look at this DiLascia article which explains the possibility of
using CCtrlView (in special circumstances) and gives a good alternative to
CCtrlView if the special circumstances can't be met.

I need on this place my own class derived from CListCtrl.
Is possible to superseede CListView with my CMyListCtrl with some other
adjustments so that it will be functional ?
When I tried it , sources are buildable, but if application runs and creates
new document, it stops in CMDIChildWnd::Create() , because HWND hWnd =
WM_MDICREATE, 0, (LPARAM)&mcs);
returns NULL, so document is not created.
Iam creating a Listbox by inheriting my class from CListCtrl class and

On right click of listbox , I want to display the row and colunm no.
Iam getting the column no through:

ilitem = ((NMLISTVIEW *)pNMHDR)->iItem;
and GetFirstSelected item() are giving me 0 regardless of the
row in which I click.
How could I retrieve the row no?
Thanks in advance,

I've created a CLISTCTRL using the expert.
[So the sizing is in the RC file].
Then I add 4 headers, and the appropriate data.
[This is with the REPORT setting].
The problem is that either the box enclosing
is too small, and the last column is clipped
[but visible with a scroll bar], or an
EXTRA column is visible.
I can play around with the sizing,
and make it look right, but when another
user tries running the app [with a different
display resolution], things break.

I am having problem in displaying different sizes of images and

displaying me the full text and when deselected then again three dots. I
want to remove these three dots at the run time depending upon the height
required by the text to be displayed. Please help.
Thanks in advance.

I have a derived class from CListView.
The View doesn't show the entire list, only a part of it.
Now I want to insert a vertical scrollbar and manage it in person to scroll

Is it possible to create a scrollbar in the derived class?
How can I do it?

There is a problem with a ListCtrl when LVIF_PARAM is specified. SetItem
returns NULL and the effect is visible. All columns exept the first are
empty The first is filled with InsertItem(). When I specify LVIF_TEXT alone,
then everything is fine. The very strange thing is that lParam seems to be
always valid, whether LVIF_PARAM is specified or not. I've traced it again
and again, nothing. Any ideas, somebody? It's Win 2k.

I created an owner draw CListCtrl-derived class which, among other things,
overrides MeasureItem(). The control works fine and the size of the rows is
set properly. I then created a CView-derived class which encapsulates the
control ( see code below ).
Unlike the control class, the view class has problems--even though
MeasureItem() is called properly (I stepped through the code) and places the
right size in the MEASUREITEMSTRUCT, the size of the subitem rectangles I
get with GetSubItemRect() do not reflect the size specified in
MeasureItem(). All the rest of the custom drawing see...How to Make CListCtrl Not Show Contents While Resizing Column
I have a CListCtrl with a subclassed CHeaderCtrl, and I want the
CListCtrl to not show contents while resizing columns. From what I
read, this is controlled by the HDS_FULLDRAG parameter in CHeaderCtrl,
which I never set. So, I tried CHeaderCtrl::ModifyStyle to turn this
off in both the original and subclassed versions, but to no avail.
Here's my code from the OnCreate member of a subclassed CListCtrl:
CHeaderCtrl* pHeaderCtrl = GetHeaderCtrl();

I decided to not try to use the CListCtrl directly in the splitter pane, but
instead go with CListView. As I understand it, CListView is something of a
container for CListCtrl. But I am unsure as to how this works. Do I need
to add CListCtrl objects to the CView? If so, how do I do this? What
methods do I need to override, etc.?

I have a ClistCtrl object which has one of the column having checkbox
I am facing a strange problem when I am trying to call SortItem(...)
on any one of the column.
What it does it automatically updates the checkbox as checked (True).
So; even the items are unselected it is showing selected.
I suspect this is caused when I call SetItemData() for one of the
column elements. So that It can be used for SortItem(..) call.
Please suggest ....
I can't reproduce this problem. Are you using the Item Data to keep track
of the checkboxs?
