I have added items to a list view control which is contained
in a property sheet. The trouble is that the control is not big enough to display all the icons. I thought it would automatically have scroll bars when too many icons were added to it. Can anyone tell me if there is some setting that I have missed or any other way to enable scroll bars?

See if your list view has the style LVS_NOSCROLL (0x2000) using spy or GetWindowLong.

Did you create the listbox with the WS_VSCROLL style?

No I created the listbox in the resource editor.

I dont know if the following code is helpful. It is in the InitDialog() function adds 24 items to the listbox control. I can only see the first 10 icons because there are no scroll bars.
Any ideas how to make the scroll bars appear?


m_ImageList.Create(IDB_TEXTURESBMP,32,24,RGB(255,255,255));
m_TexturesList.SetImageList(&m_ImageList, LVSIL_NORMAL);

LV_ITEM listItem;
listItem.mask = LVIF_TEXT | LVIF_IMAGE;
listItem.iSubItem = 0;

for(int nItem = 0; nItem<24; nItem++)
{
   listItem.iItem = nItem;
   listItem.pszText = m_TextureNames[nItem];
   listItem.iImage = nItem;
   m_TexturesList.InsertItem(&listItem);
}
