If you want all the text to be the same color, catch the WM_CTLCOLORLISTBOX message (or override CWnd::OnCtlColor for MFC). If you want each line to have different color, create an  owner-draw list box (override CListBox::OnDrawItem, ...).

The second URL is correct. Try this

Or go to http://www.codeguru.com, click "other controls" on the left navigation bar, there are some list box related articles.
