Do it in PreSubclassWindow
e.g. here is sample of my code which i use to subclass a button..

CButtonSubc::PreSubclassWindow ()
      // Call base class

      CButton::PreSubclassWindow ();


      ModifyStyle (0, BS_OWNERDRAW | BS_NOTIFY);

      // Change the window text if necessary

      ChangeWindowText ();

Similarly you can change your list control's style and add columns too !

Good Luck!
