Hi Guys,

I want the item in the listctrl to remain selected when not in focus. I know that LVS_SHOWSELALWAYS makes it highlighted but it is like a disabled text. I want it to remain with blue background and white text. This is there in clistbox. But not in list ctrl.
Do you know any other way?

Take a look at http://codeguru.developer.com/listview/LVHighlight.shtml
Idea is the same: change way how item is highlighted

I myself figured it out that SetItemState(nIndex,LVIS_DROPHILITED,LVIS_DROPHILITED) will make it highlited in blue and it remains highlited even if the focus is not in control. The only thing is we have to make sure that we remove the highlite each time another item is selected.

Anyway, i'll accept gelbert's comment as answer and provide him the points promised.

Thanks

Gelbert's suggested site provides some more good way of handling the highliting of listcontrol. Even though i figured it out myself, i think the coding given in gelbert's site provides good answer to this most common problem faced by developers.

Hi Guys,

I found the problem.
I had a
OnUpdateTbrbtnright(CCmdUI* pCmdUI)
for one of the toolbar buttons.
It was checking for Curpos and i think
this was continuously in a loop obstructing the tooltip message.

I think i'll delete the question.

Regards
Venkatesh
