CListCtrl ReportView Header

How do I retrieve the header text in each column from a CListCtrl?  I can retrieve all of the item text but not the header.  I tried redirecting the header but still cannot find a call that will return the text in each column.

CHeaderCtrl* pCtrl = m_List.GetHeaderCtrl();


Thanks,

Janet

I haven't tested this, but try something like this:

HDITEM hi;
CString csText = _T("");
int nPos = 0;

CHeaderCtrl* pCtrl = m_refListCtrl.GetHeaderCtrl();

for (int nIndex = 0; nIndex < pCtrl->GetItemCount(); nIndex++)
{
     pCtrl->GetItem(nPos, &hi);
     csText = hi.pszText;
} // end for

That gives an assertion error but thanks for trying.

Janet - here's the working version:

char buf[128];
LVCOLUMN lvc;
lvc.mask = LVCF_TEXT;
lvc.pszText = buf;
lvc.cchTextMax = 128;

CString csText = _T("");

CHeaderCtrl* pCtrl = m_refListCtrl.GetHeaderCtrl();
      
int nCount = m_refListCtrl.GetItemCount();

for (int nIndex = 0; nIndex < nCount; nIndex++)
{
     m_refListCtrl.GetColumn(nIndex, &lvc);
     csText = lvc.pszText;
} // end for


Hope that helps...

Oh, the only thing that I believe must be changed is the nCount must be equal to the number of columns, not the number of items (= #rows).
