Problem with ListBox update

I have a list box created with this :

 rList = CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE | WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE | WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES | WS_EX_TRANSPARENT,"listboxex","",WS_VISIBLE | WS_BORDER | WS_CHILD | WS_TABSTOP | LBS_NOTIFY | LBS_EXTENDEDSEL | LBS_MULTIPLESEL | LBS_STANDARD | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_HSCROLL | WS_VSCROLL | WS_TABSTOP,0,0,100,100,HWindow,(HMENU)903,hInstance,0);

listboxex is a class that only processes mouse clicks and drag + drop events . The control also receives WM_CTL* messages .

I have a problem with Windows 98 . The scroll bars and the border of the listbox aren't always visible , only if I send a new item with LB_ADDITEM they are updated , and then again problem . This didn't happen with Win 95

How can I fix it ?

<<WS_EX_TRANSPARENT was designed to be used in very modal situations and the lifetime of a window with this style must be very short. A good use of this style is for drawing tracking points on the top of another window. For example, a dialog editor would use it to draw tracking points around the control that is being selected or moved. >>
