Is there any way of changing the text color for individual rows and columns or cells in a listview control. There are API calls to set the extended style for this control but I have seen nothing about text color. Where does one obtain documentation on this control or COMCTL32.dll so as to design own API calls using 'SendMessage'?

I have searched long and hard for this.  There is no way to do it with the standard listview. You can set the extended styles such as FullRowSelect easily enough and one would imagine that this is where the colour would have been manipulated, but it simply does not allow it.

I have changed the text color of individual rows of a Listview control utilizing the API and a Subclass control, but I don't know if you can do the same with columns or cells.

Please advise on API call to do this. Changing an entire row might be all I need to do.

VB6 supports this kind of behavior.  However, if VB6 is not an option
and you don't mind some complicated subclassing check out:

The sample is called ListView Coloured Items.
