The CListCtrl uses the system colors for the selected text colors.  The only way to change them would be to globally change them (using ::SetSysColors()), or to make your CListCtrl an "owner-draw" control, by overriding CListCtrl::DrawItem() and drawing the whole Row yourself.Also, be aware that when the control loses focus, the background color of selected items changes to COLOR_3DFACE (if you have the "Always Show Selection" mode turned on).
