I am trying to make a CListBox that wordwraps the text instead of using the horiz scrollbar.  I was told that I need to make it ONWERDRAWVARIABLE and use CDC to draw the text in to each by hand.  Does anyone have any sample code that demonstrates this?

Yes, you will need to use an ownerdrawn listbox. Then you will need to respond to two additional messages: OnMeasureItem() and OnDrawItem(). In OnMeasureItem, you will be asked to return the size of the item. That means you'll have to have figured out tall each item is going to be (since you'll use the width of the listbox for the width of the itme). You can use DrawText() with DT_WORDWRAP and DT_CALCRECT to figure out the size.

Then in DrawItem, you will need to draw the item with DrawText and specify DT_WORDWRAP.

Oops. I meant DT_WORDBREAK and not DT_WORDWRAP.
