Setting Views in List View

Can I have the full source code to change to different Views for a list view...

my implementation of :

      DWORD dwNewStyle = LVS_SMALLICON;
      DWORD dwOldStyle = GetWindowLong(m_hWnd, GWL_STYLE);
      dwNewStyle |= (dwOldStyle &=~LVS_TYPEMASK);
      SetWindowLong(m_hWnd, GWL_STYLE, dwNewStyle);

doesnt seem to do anything. I insert this codes to a bunch of buttons which represent the different views. I change the variable dwNewStyle to support the 4 views.

Hi load_o_crap,

Just use CWnd::ModifyStyle() to change it, i.e.:

CWnd* pList = GetDlgItem( IDC_LIST1 );
// change to SmallIcon view

hope that helps,
