Andy,

Formview works fine, but I Don´t like because I need to resize the control to fits on my view. I would like get it on a easy way like ListView on VC 32 bit version.
If I have no choice I am going to used...

thanks!!!

I don't have VC1.5 anymore, but this should work

i. Override PreCreateWindow.  Create the window a Listbox with class name of "listbox" and style as you want.

2. When-ever you want to call list box functionality you can cast the CView pointer into a CListBox pointer

e.g. in CView

((CListBox *)this)->AddString( "Hello" ) ;

This cast will work because the CListBox class includes no additional data members beyond those in CWnd, and neither does your view.  Adding data members to the view should be okay, adding to the list box class (or a derived class of CListBox) is _not_.
