No WM_CREATE for CListCtrl?

I have derived a class from CListCtrl.  I need to set the control's column widths as soon as the control is attached to the CWnd.  Although WM_DESTROY is sent to the control, WM_CREATE is not, so that's out.  Is there a message that I can handle in my derived class that will come exactly one time, after the control is ready to accept SetColumnWidth()?

Is your control being accessed via the DDX_Control function or is it part of a CListView?

If the control is in a dialog and is being subclassed through DDX_Control, then one way that should work would be to override the PreSubclassWindow function. Your control won't yet be receiving messages in this function, but it should have the correct HWND to be able to call the CListCtrl functions like SetColumnWidth.

The reason you're not getting the WM_CREATE message is that it is sent immediately when the control is created and subclassing doesn't ocurr until later.

(I am using DDX_CONTROL).  Great!  That makes sense; the WM_CREATE probably could be caught in the view.  PreSubclassWindow() works fine, though.  Thanks.
