I have made a listview, which is only used in Reportview with fullrowselect.

My problem is to mark a specific line, as if you had clicked on it. Box around the line and changing the background colors (bit like inverting the line).

Is there anyone who knows how do that.

Kind Regards

Do you want this row to be selected ?
If yes, try pMyListiew->SetItemState(iItem , LVIS_FOCUSED|LVIS_SELECTED,LVIS_FOCUSED|LVIS_SELECTED);

If you want your mark to be independant of the selection one(I don't really know what you intend to do) perhaps try the same function with LVIS_DROPHILITED rather then LVIS_SELECTED...

ListView_SetExtendedListViewStyleEx(hWin,LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT,LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT);

But this only works if IE3.0 is installed, that is comctl32.dll has version 4.70.

Hi Nick, degarn

Degarn has found the right function, which I have tried before, but I have found out, it was becase I didn't had focus on the ListView, Stupid me.


I think it most fair that degarn gets my points so please send an answer.

Here it comes !
You know it often happens...
Now, I oftenly use the LVS_SHOWSELALWAYS style falg so that I always have an hilighted item (when listview not focused, you see it clearely...).
