I'm trying to scroll a listview that's in report mode. I'm using drag and drop but if the item the user wants to drop over is further down or up the list I want the user to be able to move the drag item just above or below the list and have the listview scroll automatically up or down accordingly. I don't want to use sendkeys or anything that will select an item in the listview. Just change the view. I'm currently trying to use the LVM_SCROLL Win API message. Here's my code:

Private Sub RLst_DragOver(Source As Control, x As Single, y As Single, State As Integer)
Dim result As Long

If y < 250 Then 'above the list so scroll up
    result = SendMessage(RLst.hwnd, LVM_SCROLL, 0, -1)
ElseIf y > 3850 Then 'below the list so scroll down
    result = SendMessage(RLst.hwnd, LVM_SCROLL, 0, 1)
End If

Here is a sample for a treeview. You can use a similar approach for a listview.

Cool! Thanks Mirkwood! For others out there, I just did a hittest on the first and last viewable items on the list and if they hit I scrolled up or down by one accordingly by setting the previous/next item "EnsureVisible". I also tested to see if the hit was the first or last item in the list to make sure I got no "Out of bounds" errors. Throw in some doevents to make it look pretty and hey! up and running in no time.
