Yes you must create owner draw list box and perform custom drawing. Use GrayString to draw list box item gray text or use GetSysColor(COLOR_GRAYTEXT) to get gray text color, call SetTextColor() and then draw text using usual GDI  function DrawText or (Ext)TextOut.

Short answer is: NO. You can use 3-rd party gadgets, list control(a new thing for Win95) or implement owner-drawn list box. All these solutions are a bit clumsy, but will do the trick.

The way i found for dealing with this issue is to display a grayed
bitmap for the grayed item's.
This will work for a list-control  ( i don't know if a list-box can show bitmaps ), the list-control also has the capability of owner-drawing, maybe this can help you.
