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

Yes, owner draw will solve the problem, but is it really necessary ? why can't Microsoft make our live easier ?
