Hello,

I want create a CListBox with 4 columns and I want to use the proportional font "MS Sans Serif".

I'm a little bit confused how to manage this.

I know of LBS_MULTICOLUMN and SetColumnWidth, LBS_USETABSTOPS and SetTabSTops but I need
an example to create the ListBox and fill with data.

I give 200 points for you and hope to get a GOOD example
that is running !!!

Thanks for any help.

Multicolumn listboxes have fixed width columns, ie all columns are the same width.  Using tabs, the widths can be variable.  Which are you interested in doing?  I can help you with the details.

To do the tabbed listbox, set the "Use Tabstops" property for the listbox in the dialog editor properties box. then add this code to the OnInitDialog():

// array of tab stops in dialog units
//
int iTabs[] = {40, 80, 120};

// set the tab stops
//
m_listBox.SetTabStops(sizeof(iTabs)/sizeof(int), iTabs);

// add strings, tab separated
//
m_listBox.AddString("Column1\tColumn2\tColumn3\tColumn4");
m_listBox.AddString("X\tX\tX\tX");

Voila, columns!!!
