How do I lock Listview column widths/headers?

Damned if I can find it. I want to prevent the user from resizing column headers when a listview's in report view. This is because I use zero width columns to hold reference data (eg. customer primary key) and the user can access this by simply playing with the column widths. I want the listview to basically ignore user attempts to modify the column width. Help!

you can use a tricky way , by making the style of the listview  [ listview.view=2 ] is list, and use labels instead od headers.

A better solution for the 0 length columns is to use the tag property of Listitem object with a variant array

Dim x as string(4)
Dim li as listitem
x(1) = "Hello"
x(2) = "Othervalue"
.
li.tag = x

Thanks Mirkwood! Has been implemented. Still would like to lock the column headers but your quick response meant I could get on with this under a tight deadline! And it solves my "user seeing data they're not supposed to" problem!

For future reference it should be noted that the syntax for the array I used was:
dim x(0 to 3) as variant //can be (3 to 30),(1 to 4) or whatever

the syntax Mirkwood gave me was incorrect. Also to retrieve the tag just use:

(whatever here).tag(1) //or 0,2,3 as the array permits
