TListbox OnMeasureItem problems

The OnMeasureItem event is only called when a new item is added.  Can it be set up to call it every time it is Invalidated?

My items change height a lot.  They cause the listbox to be repainted.  At the moment I have to cheat and set and unset a visual property to force a new measurement.  This results in a huge flicker.

eg.

Listbox.Ctl3d:=False;
Listbox.Ctl3d:=True;

Hmmm..
There must be an easy way round this!

I haven't tried this, but it may work:
  LockWindowUpdate(YourMainForm.Handle);
  ListBox.Ctl3d := False;
  ListBox.Ctl3d := True;
  LockWindowUpdate(0);

Have u tried using the OnDrawItem instead of OnMeasureItem. I am not sure what exactly u are doing with the height of the items in the Listbox but OnDrawItem will be called every time u select a Item or scroll through the Item. Addtionally this event is called when u call the Listbox's Invalidate  method.

I am using OnDrawItem to draw the items.  OnMeasureItem enables you to have variable height items.
