How can I use CListCtrl to browse large database (more than 10000 records.  I must do this without any third party grid control (i.e. the source code must be freely available)

There are basically 2 ways to accomplish this task. The 1st is to use virtual LB technology and add only a place holder for the items then when the user scrolls supply the real information.  This is helped using the WM_NOTIFY message from the list control.  The 2nd involves using a timer or thread to populate the control.  This allows the UI to respond to the users input while fully populating the list.  In the application I work on there is a record count of 400k which posed unique problems.  99% of the time the user knew the record ID.  What I created was a mix of a few things.

On the bottom of the window I have an edit control that the user can enter the ID if they know it.  All the while I an filling the list woth record using another thread.  I also added buttons to the right of the list to allow the user to select a sub-list (e.g., all name starting with "A").  The users received this solution well and like the flexability.
