Drawing horizontal and vertical gridlines - Zafir Anjum (1998/08/06)
List control with single / double separator lines - Zoran M.Todorovic (1998/10/05)


Basic idea is to make the control ownerdraw and paint each item yourself with additional grid lines

Hi michali.

If you are having VC 5.0 +, try this out.

OnInitDialog of the dlg which contains the listctrl, add the following lines :

DWORD dwStyle =
m_MyLstCtrl.SendMessage(LVM_GETEXTENDEDLISTVIEWSTYLE,0,0);
dwStyle |= LVS_EX_GRIDLINES;
m_MyLstCtrl.SendMessage(LVM_SETEXTENDEDLISTVIEWSTYLE, 0, dwStyle);

In addition to this style, if you are interested, you can try out the following:
dwStyle |= LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT;
dwStyle |= LVS_EX_TRACKSELECT;
dwStyle |= LVS_EX_HEADERDRAGDROP;
dwStyle |= LVS_EX_SUBITEMIMAGES;

These are features included as member functions in 6.0 but are still available in 5.0 thru the above code.
