1.) Is there a way that the whole line becomes selected when I select a row in report mode ?
     Only the first column items get selected, not the subitems.

2.) Is there a way to use different colors for different rows ?

To select the entire row you just have to make a simple API call:
Declaration:
Public Declare Function SendMessageLong Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" _
       (ByVal hwnd As Long, _
       ByVal Msg As Long, _
       ByVal wParam As Long, _
       ByVal lParam As Long) As Long
       Public Const FIRSTADR = &H1000
       Public Const SETEXTLVSTYLE = FIRSTADR + 54
       Public Const GETEXTLVSTYLE = FIRSTADR + 55
       Public Const FULLROWSEL = &H20
Then use as follows:
       Dim Style As Long
       Dim x As Long
       'check Style
       Style = SendMessageLong(ListView.hwnd, GETEXTLVSTYLE, 0&, 0&)
       
       'to remove the FullRowSelection:
       Style = Style Xor FULLROWSEL
       'to set the FullRowSelection
       Style = Style Or FULLROWSEL
       'To apply just call
       r = SendMessageLong(ListView.hwnd, SETEXTLVSTYLE, 0&, Style)
Have fun

I don´t know how to set different colors. But if it´s enough you can set Gridlines in the same way. Just Or with &H1 , Xor with &H1 (Define a global const for &H1: EXTLVGRID)

I don´t think so. For such things it would be better to use a third party grid control.
