NM_SETFOCUS in ListCtrl

I use a ListCtrl in a dialog. I map the NM_SETFOCUS message like this:

void CMainDlg::OnSetfocusFilelist(NMHDR* pNMHDR, LRESULT* pResult)
{
      NM_LISTVIEW* pNMListView = (NM_LISTVIEW*)pNMHDR;
      int i = pNMListView->iItem;
      *pResult = 0;
}

I think i is the item number that be set focus. But it can't work. I can't get the right number. why?

BTW, if I click a item to select it, can I still get the item's selected state after the control is not in the ListCtrl? I hope to click some items in the ListCtrl and press a button, then my program will know which items I have selected . what is the better way to implement this?

Thank you very much.

Try this to get the item no. in NM_SETFOCUS
void CMainDlg::OnSetfocusFilelist(NMHDR* pNMHDR, LRESULT* pResult)
{
  DWORD pos = ::GetMessagePos();
  CPoint point((int)LOWORD(pos),(int)HIWORD(pos));
   m_ListCtrl.ScreenToClient(&point);

  int itemno = m_ListCtrl.HitTest(point);
   ///////////////////
   // if (itemno == -1)
   //  No item selected
}

m_ListCtrl is a variable of type CListCtrl for the List Control

For the selection of items to remain after the listctrl has lost focus use the style LVS_SHOWSELALWAYS (Select the Show Selection Always on the Styles tab of list control)

Hi,
If u Map NM_SETFOCUS, the function will be called only first time u focus to CListCtrl. So u cannot get the selected item at all.

I suggest to use any one of the following methods.
There are two ways to do this.
I) Single selection
1. Declare a member variable m_nItem in that class.
2. Map OnClickList (NM_CLICK).
add the body

NM_LISTVIEW* pNMListView = (NM_LISTVIEW*)pNMHDR;
      m_nItem = pNMListView->iItem;
3. On press of a button you will be knowing the item selected index (i.e.,m_nItem). Using m_nItem u can access selected item information. (GetItemText(m_nItem,0) ...)

II). Better approach
If u have multiple/Single selections.

CListCtrl* pListCtrl = (CListCtrl*) GetDlgItem(IDC_YOURLISTCONTROL);
ASSERT(pListCtrl != NULL);

POSITION pos = pList->GetFirstSelectedItemPosition();
if (pos == NULL)
   TRACE0("No items were selected!\n");
else
{
   while (pos)
   {
      int nItem = pList->GetNextSelectedItem(pos);
      TRACE1("Item %d was selected!\n", nItem);
      // you could do your own processing on nItem here
   }
}

Great!

I use ch_vasu's second way. It worked perfectly. It looks like that though the ListCtrl loses it's focus, it still remembers  which items have been selected.
