How to enter items in sorted order in a report list view control.

Hi,

I want to add items with a unique date field in a report list view control. Therefore I have made an "Add" button with a linked message handler. Here I convert the date field
entered in a edit control to a CTime object "Date". I use that object to calculate a unique integer value with the following code:

const CTime refDate( 1980, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0 );
int dateID = ( int ) ( Date - refDate ).GetDays();

When I put this number in the "iItem" member of the LV_ITEM struct the CListCtrl::InsertItem call changes this number to a zero based index, so I can forget my sorting.
Is this a good approch of my problem or do I have to solve it a different way. If someone knows the answer please let me know.

                              Thanks in advance.

How to do it.
1. Turn off the built in sorting style for the list
2. Store the days value in the row's ItemData (see SetItemData).  When you insert a row, you can an index of the new row back,  then use SetItemData to set day's
3. Repeat #2 as many times as necessary to add all your new items
4. When insertion is complete, then call SortItems member of CListCtrl, this takes a function pointer as 1 parameter, use function #5 (below)
5. You need to define a static CALLBACK function in your code.  This compares 2 items.  Should return -1 (if one less than other), should return 0 (if both same), +1 (if one greater than other) - kind of like strcmp.  This function gets the item data for the two items you're comparing
