CListCtrl is used on a Dialog or Property Page. It is something you drag and
drop and size it up the way you want automatically.
CListView is used within a view. You have to tell it where to position ...Overriding CListCtrl/CListView
I have the following problem. I have to write few classes based on CListView
which load some data from database. Those classes should contain interface
to manage the data. I would like to make accessible functions like Load -
which loads all the data from database, Clear - deletes all the data from
database and respectively from ListCtrl, Delete - deletes all selected
entries from ListView and from database, etc. The interface is used by
CMyDialog class, which contains buttons to execute those actions by user and
of course List Control which is the graphical representation of the data

I've written an application with a standard CListCtrl (non-virtual),

Most of the time (but not always) the program crashes, when I click on
the list after having filled it's content twice (=reloaded the
content). Everything else is working after start-up. I can sort, I can

I created a report list control that initially fills the first column on all
its rows and leaves the next two columns blank.
Now I want to write code that will allow me to fill in the "blanks" at a

When I use SetItem (Without insert item) nothing is filled in.
How do I code for this?

How is this done?
Any pointers, source code or advice will be appreciated.
You should be able to do it using NM_CUSTOMDRAW. I did the same thing for a tree control
using customdraw. It gives you the ability to change font of each item among other things.
Sample for handling customdraw is available at codeguru and MSDN.

I have a list control where the cells are editable, where the intention is
you can edit the cells in column 1 but not in column 0 (a kind of properties
But I can't stop the user from holding down the left button for a long time
and then editing in that cell.
I have trapped the LVN_ENDLABELEDIT so it does not apply the change for
column 0 but it is still untidy?
No worries, i've realised I just don't call the OnLButtonDown for the parent
class if in column 0.
I always realise the answer just after ive posted.

Using CListCtrl, but when I sort the indexes do not go along with the
Here's what I mean:
Suppose I add these items:
Row 0: John
Row 1: Bob
Row 2: Tom
Now when I click on the header and sort them in alphabetical order:
Row 1: Bob
Row 0: John
Row 2: Tom
Now when I call GetItemData(0) I am expecting to get "John".
0 is where I added "John".
But instead, I get "Bob" (the new sort ordered index).
So this presents a problem. I have no idea where John is anymore.. in case I
wanted to edit that item later, I have to scan through all the items.

I was wondering, is there an easy way to make the column sizing of this
For example, after you insert items for the first time, it should resize
a column so all items fit, unless that'd cause a scrollbar to be required.
The same should happen after items are inserted.
SetColumnWidth(i, LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER); could be used, but that'd
be a bit slow because it'd iterate through all items every time.

I'm using a MDI application.
I've added scrollbars to the mainframe inside the PreCreateWindow() function,

This works fine, only after resizing (for zooming) or moving my CViews
'outside' the mainframe, the scrollbars don't resize automatically
(only if I scroll around or resize my mainFrame).
I've already tried several things like RepositionBars or RecalcLayout,
both seems to have no effect.
How can I make the scrollbars recalculate their positions and size?
