I'm trying to make my CListCtrl (LVS_REPORT) column right align by using:
LV_COLUMN            lvColumn;

lvColumn.mask = LVCF_FMT | LVCF_WIDTH | LVCF_TEXT | LVCF_SUBITEM;

The problem is this method fail to set the first column to right align. All column except first column can be set.
Did any of you know what's going wrong ?

If you want to change the order of columns in list view control you can use message LVM_SETCOLUMNORDERARRAY. Parameters are
LPARAM is Address of an array that specifies the order in which columns should be displayed, in left-to-right order. For example, if the contents of the array are {2,0,1}, the control displays column 2, column 0, and column 1 in that order.
WPARAM is size, in elements, of the buffer at array. You can also use macro ListView_SetColumnOrderArray instead. But remember, that this message is supported only for comctl32.dll version 4.70 or higher installed by InetSDK or Internet Explorer 3.0 or higher.

No, I don't want to change column order, I want to Left or Right Justify text inside the column.

In this case you must create owner draw list control and perform custom drawing right justifying text in columns
