Hi experts!
I would like to do a ListBox with several lines in each item, like this:
--------------------------
id:nnnn                  |
name: xxxxxxxxxxx        >  item 1
hobie: yyyyyyyyy         |    
--------------------------
id:nnnn                  |
name: xxxxxxxxxxx        >  item 2
hobie: yyyyyyyyy         |    
--------------------------

I tried using an AddString with "\n" and "\r" between strings, but it does not work. I have reviewed some multicolumn samples
but I need a diferent kind of viewing my data.

In addtion I new in MFC and need to do it on VC++ 1.52.
A big problem, don´t you think?
I would like some advice. please

You are going to have to do an owner drawn list box. Using "\n" or "\r" won't be of any help with AddString.

I'm pretty sure there is a owner-drawn listbox example that comes with VC1.5x called CTRLTEST that has a listbox which displays colored bars. Instead of filling in a colored box you will need to use DrawText or something similar to "paint" the lines for each item.

Great! Glad it helped.

If you "accept the answer" it'll be moved out of locked mode, so other people who might have the same problem can see the answer for a few points.
