Control IDs ?

I am creating a listview with the following statement

m_pListView->Create( WS_VISIBLE |  LVS_SINGLESEL | LVS_NOSORTHEADER | LVS_SHOWSELALWAYS | LVS_REPORT, rect, this, ID_LISTVIEW );

This code comes from an example in a book. The problem is that no explanation is given as to where to declare ID_LISTVIEW and what number to make it. If I just use 120 it works but I would like to be a bit more certain about what is going on. All help will be greatly appreciated.

hello agrillage,
every control in MFC must have a uniqe UINT (32 bit value)
number, which Identifies it.
many calls uses this ID as a parameter,
you can't use 120!
there may be a resource or another control with the same ID
if you want to create a unique id, use a #define statement
there is a constant named 'WM_USER' which is set to a number not use by the system.
you can define your controls from this const and on:
#define ID_MYLISTVIEW1   WM_USER + 1
#define ID_MYLISTVIEW2   WM_USER + 2

and so on.

just a fluke
my Enter key was pressed down, and probably when you reach a certain size it sends the answer automatically
