If I add a List Control to my dialog app using the dialog editor, it has a beveled edge around it so the list appears to be sunken in.  When I create a CListCtrl object manually (not with the dialog editor), it just has a thin black border around it.  How can I get the same type of border?

Turn off WS_BORDER in the window style. Turn on WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE instead.

  listCtrl->ModifyStyle(WS_BORDER, 0);
  listCtrl->ModifyStyleEx(0, WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE);

LONG SetWindowLong( HWND hWnd, // handle of window
                    int nIndex,  // offset of value to set
                    LONG dwNewLong )// new value
or CWindow::SetWindowLong(...)
can help you.

set the parameter of nIndex = GWL_EXSTYLE or =GWL_STYLE.
and set the parameter of dwNewLong to the new style .

before you set the new style , you need to get the old style and add to new style flag to it with "OR" .
GetWindowLong(...,GWL_EXSTYLE,...)
GetWindowLong(...,GWL_STYLE,...) can get the current style of the window.

The WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE style almost works.  When the dialog first appears, the list control has no edge at all.  Then if I adjust the width of the headers, suddenly the edge changes and looks good.  Any more ideas?
