Hi bengore,

AFAIK, you can hide both scrollbar.

Derive a new control from TTreeview and override its CreateParams method like this:

procedure tNoScrollbarsTreeview.createparams(var params: TCreateParams);
begin
  inherited;
  params.style := params.style or TVS_NOSCROLL;
end;

Best Regards

I don't want to make a new component. Is there no possibility to make the changes in the FormCreate procedure like:
SetWindowsStyle(Listbox.Handle, TVS_NOSCROLL) or some other Windows API function?

Hi bengore,

no its not possible. The Listview manage the Scrollbars and will show them automaticly.

I hope some other Experts here can help you.

Hi Cesario,

you can hide it again... a very raw example:

  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ListView1: TListView;
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
    procedure FormDestroy(Sender: TObject);
  private
    FListViewWndProc: TWndMethod;
    procedure ListViewWndProc(var Message: TMessage);
  public
  end;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.ListViewWndProc(var Message: TMessage);
begin
  ShowScrollBar(ListView1.Handle, SB_HORZ, False); // hide horiz scrollbar
  FListViewWndProc(Message); // process message
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ListView1.Items[0].Left := 300;
  FListViewWndProc := ListView1.WindowProc; // save old window proc
  ListView1.WindowProc := ListViewWndProc; // subclass
end;

procedure TForm1.FormDestroy(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ListView1.WindowProc := FListViewWndProc; // restore window proc
  FListViewWndProc := nil;
end;

This will hide the horizontal scrollbar again and again whenever it receives *any* message, which is an overkill, normally you would only hide it after receiving specific messages making the scrollbar visible. I don't know which these are... As I said, this example is very raw.
