This code is from a member function of a class derived from CListView:

 CListCtrl& ctrl = GetListCtrl();
 int count = ctrl.GetItemCount();
 for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
 {
   // do something with each item
 }

That makes sense, but my goal is to call FindItem for a ListView control.  I created the ListView control as a dialog resource, and now I want to search the control.  The I'm trying to call FindItem from code outside of the listview control.  Here is the code:

  CListView* pLB = (CListView*) GetDlgItem(IDC_LISTVIEW);
  CListCtrl *pLC;
  pLC = &(pLB->GetListCtrl());

  nIndex = ListView_FindItem( pLC->m_hWnd,-1,&plvfi);

Can you see a problem with the above?  FindItem returns with -1 every time even when it should match.

CListView in a dialog ? There must be something wrong, you can only have a CListCtrl in a dialog box, and then what you only need to do is to define a member variable with class wizard as control for it. Then you could call:

LV_FINDINFO lvfi;
lvfi.flags = LVFI_STRING;      // Search strings
int index = m_YourListCtrl.FindItem(&lvfi, -1);

That's it,

I had renamed the dialog and this prevented class wizard from showing new IDCs so I coudn't add a member variable for the list control.  I have done that, the next step is to figure out why FindItem doesn't work when i'm trying to search subItems.

Thanks,

If you change something, that class wizard don't recognize then simply delete the .clw-file in your project folder and from within Visual C++ type Ctrl+W and let the class wizard build the .clw-file again. That's what one often had to do when including new files to the project or if some changes in the resource-file will be made that class wizard don't recognize.

Thanks,

Thank you!! That is very useful information.  

I didn't get FindItem to work so I just used the member variable created with class wizard to call GetText.  I just iterate through the list control comparing each subItem.  I'm sure this method is not as fast as FindItem, but it works.  Thank you for your help!
