CListCtrl -
1. How do I prevent a user resizing the columns?

2. Stop the blue hilighter appearing when an item is clicked on?

I can do this if I invalidate the window, but the windows background becomes greyed. I want a white background.  Any ideas?

Thanks in Advance

Hi,

Not to allow user to resize.

Have Ur own List Control class say CDontResize and associate it with ur list control. Then map the following function

BOOL CDontResize::OnNotify(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam, LRESULT* pResult)
{

      HD_NOTIFY *pHDN = (HD_NOTIFY*)lParam;
      {
            if((pHDN->hdr.code == HDN_BEGINTRACKW || pHDN->hdr.code == HDN_BEGINTRACKA)
                        && (pHDN->iItem == 2) || (pHDN->iItem == 3) || (pHDN->iItem == 4) ||
                        (pHDN->iItem == 5) || (pHDN->iItem == 6) || (pHDN->iItem == 7) || (pHDN->iItem == 8))
            {
                  *pResult = TRUE;
                  return TRUE;
            }
      }      
      return CListCtrl::OnNotify(wParam, lParam, pResult);
}

Here I am not allowing the columns 2 - 8 to resize!!!.

Try it out.

Hi,

And not to allow to select any row, map the PreTranslateMessage() to that class and add the following code

      if(pMsg->message == WM_LBUTTONDOWN)
      {
            pMsg->message = NULL;
            return 0;
      }

Hope that helps.

Hi,

To prevent selection u can map the WM_LBUTTONDOWN message to that class and dont call the base class member. That also will work.

Try it out.
