I'm trying to create a listview control in a dialog box using the following line:
CONTROL "",-1,"WC_LISTVIEW",0,10,10,200,105
I'm sure I called the InitCommonControls() procedure, but the whole dialog box doesn't even show up.

Full rc script would be nice. In the old days when I used to write this sort of thing I always (ALWAYS!) forgot WS_VISIBLE.

YearPlanner DIALOG 80,60,220,150
STYLE DS_3DLOOK | DS_MODALFRAME
CAPTION "Jaarplanner"
{
   CONTROL "",-1,"WC_LISTVIEW",0,10,10,200,105

   PUSHBUTTON "OK",ID_OK,20,125,50,15
   PUSHBUTTON "Annuleren",ID_CANCEL,140,125,50,15
}

The problem is, the whole dialog box doesn't show up, not only the listview control

BTW BigRat, what do you mean with "in the old days"? Are you using a visual development tool or something now?

Hi!
Winodws don`t display dialog af it teplate contain control with unregister class.
I think that your class name WC_LISTVIEW - is incorrect try to use:
"SysListView32" - (generated by VisualC++ Resource studio)
