I'm using LVS_OWNERDRAWFIXED style in CListCtrl Create function. But frame work does not call my DrawItem function. I'm unable to find solution for this. Your help is highle appreciated.
The code I have written is as follows:
BOOL CMyListCtrl::Create()
BOOL bRet = CListCtrl::Create(style,rect,pParentWnd,nID);

return bRet

void CMyListCtrl::DrawItem( LPDRAWITEMSTRUCT dis )/*virtual*/

Yes. I'm adding at runtime. I verified that Framework is not calling drawitem when I say InsertColumn and SetItemText.
I would like to add some additional information to my question.
In my project, application loads a DLL. Dll creates the list control and adds items at runtime. Do i have to subclass the class derived from list control to get messages.

How about adding to the Create flags the window style reffering to owner drawing?
I don't remmember the exact name, i think it was WS_OWNERDRAW ( it could also be an extended window style ).
