CListCtrl with CheckBox option in Report View

I have a list control with the checkbox option on.  I wanted to set it up so no matter where on the row a user clicked the checkbox would work.  I followed code on codeguru and on my click event I check if the click is inside of any of the rows (inside GetItemRect with LVIR_BOUNDS) and if it is I call SetCheck on that row.  It all works except for if I try to click inside of the checkbox.  Now it gets to the OnItemChangedList twice.  ie - it automatically is checked as that is handled when you check and it also is handled a second time through my click code.  Therefore it does a quick check/uncheck combo.  I looked up how to calculate bounding rectanges on the list view so I could return from the click event if the user clicked in the checkbox and there is LVIR_BOUNDS, LVIR_ICON, and LVIR_LABEL.  I didn't see anything for getting the rectangle of the checkbox.  Anyone have any good ideas on this one.

I think the supplied check boxes are just state icons. If so, you could hit test the list control to see if the point is on the state icon.

The message you need to send is LVM_HITTEST (CListCtrl::HitTest() in MFC).

I tried your suggestion.  It works for the checkbox but breaks the rest of column 0 (which contains a color icon).  Now I can click on the checkbox or on any column other than column 0 and it works but if I click on column 0 outside of the checkbox (like on the icon) it does not work. Before the fix I could click on column 0 or any other column except for the checkbox inside of Column 0.

Could you post your hit test code?

Below are the 2 functions that are called that end up not working correctly.



void CWIT_TAKE1Dlg::OnItemchangedList1(NMHDR* pNMHDR, LRESULT* pResult)
{
      NM_LISTVIEW* pNMListView = (NM_LISTVIEW*)pNMHDR;
      *pResult = 0;

      if (pNMListView->uOldState == 0 && pNMListView->uNewState == 0)
            return;      // No change

      BOOL bPrevState = (BOOL)(((pNMListView->uOldState & 
                        LVIS_STATEIMAGEMASK)>>12)-1);   // Old check box state
      if (bPrevState < 0)      // On startup there's no previous state
            bPrevState = 0; // so assign as false (unchecked)

      // New check box state
      BOOL bChecked=(BOOL)(((pNMListView->uNewState & LVIS_STATEIMAGEMASK)>>12)-1);  
      if (bChecked < 0) // On non-checkbox notifications assume false
            bChecked = 0;

      if (bPrevState == bChecked) // No change in check box
            return;
      
      if (bChecked)
      {
            if (m_SpreadsheetInformation[pNMListView->iItem].CurrentIcon != AfxGetApp()->LoadIcon(IDI_WHITE))
                  return;
            if (m_NumChecked < 10)
            {
                  int x;
                  m_NumChecked++;
                  for (x = 0; x < 10; x++)

                  m_imageList.Replace(pNMListView->iItem, GIconArray[x].hIcon);

                        break;
                  }
            }
      }

I think you want to use code this as follows:

void CWIT_TAKE1Dlg::OnClickList1(NMHDR* pNMHDR, LRESULT* pResult)
{

  DWORD pos = GetMessagePos();
  CPoint pt(LOWORD(pos), HIWORD(pos));
 
  m_List.ScreenToClient(&pt);

  UINT uFlags;
  int nItem = m_List.HitTest(pt, &uFlags);

  // They hit an actual item....
  if (nItem!=-1)
  {
    m_List.SetItemState(nItem, 0, LVIS_SELECTED | LVIS_FOCUSED);

    // If they didn't hit the check box...
    if (!(uFlags & LVHT_ONSTATEICON))
    {
      m_List.SetCheck(nItem, !(m_List.GetCheck(nItem)));
    }
  }
}

OK I took your code and added an else /*if nItem == -1*/ and put the rest of my code in for the selection outside of column 0 and it all seemed to work.  Your code allowed me to select anywhere in column 0 and mine worked for the other columns.  Thank you so much for your help.
