I noticed while writing a handler for the NM_CUSTOMDRAW notification for
a CListCtrl that the NVLMCUSTOMDRAW structure passed to the handler contains
an NMCUSTOMDRAW struction, which contains a member variable uItemState.
Possible settings for this state include CDIS_GRAYED and CDIS_DISABLED, both
of which sound a lot like what I'd like to do to the state of some of my
items (in Icon View).
Is there any way to set a CListCtrl item's state to be disabled or

...Icons Shown for Attachments
I have written an icon shell extension for AXS files (bespoke format file)
which is working fine through windows explorer but when the .AXS file is
attached to a message in outlook 2003. The problem is down to the filename I
am being passed by outlook which is always set to C:\WINDOWS\filename.AXS
Even worse, outlook express 6 passes me C:\WINDOWS\.AXS
This cannot be the correct location for any temporary file created by
outlook as a user may not have permission to write to C:\WINDOWS.
Has anybody seen this problem before? Any ideas on how to fix it?

Suddenly double clicking the file icon opens Excel with no worksheet and the data doesn't load (application has been used for over a year; failure to successfully open began about a week ago).

Files can be opened using the Open command within Excel, but not through a file shortcut nor through Windows Explorer. Does anyone have any thoughts?

On occasion I get what feels like a crash -- in the
middle of an excel session after a refresh or something I
will get a 2-3 inch column of gray on the left side of my
excel workbook. I can still move around, save, use the
functionality, etc. but there is this gray area I can't
see through. This view will remain even if I go to any
workbook I have opened in this session of excel -- so its
not a workbook problem per se. The only way to get rid
of it is to go in and out of excel. Has anyone seen this
or know what it is? Thanks,

Does anyone have a listing of the icons used by Outlook. I

inside a circle, attached to an envelope.
I cannot find out what it means, but a person to whom I
sent an email with this symbol did not receive the email,
even though my program says it was sent.
I believe the "i" means you've received a read receipt on that one.
Wouldn't bet my life on it thought.

I've got Outlook 2000 - When attaching a file to an email,
for example, an Excel file, the icon for the file changes
to one completely off base - like a solitaire icon, or
something else bizarre. Recipients even see the incorrect
icon and are skeptical of opening the file - even though
the file extension is still correct.
This problem occurs intermittently, on all file types at
that particular time. This just doesn't look so good on
those critical business related emails...
Any help greatly appreciated!
