Hi,
Can someone direct me to an explorer-like sample which uses CListCtrl and fill the list as the explorer does (filename, size, type etc.)
I tried to do this myself, but I have difficulties in getting the file type. I tried to use:

SHGetFileInfo(FileName, 0, &sfi, sizeof(sfi), SHGFI_TYPENAME);

but there are some types of files which the szTypeName field of SHFILEINFO return as empty string though I can see that the explorer show the type of the file.
A sample code of an explorer will realy help...

thanks,
Yoav.

The reason I wanted the sample is that I didnt know what to do when:
SHGetFileInfo(FileName, 0, &sfi, sizeof(sfi), SHGFI_TYPENAME);
returns an empty string for the type. I thought to overcome it by adding to the extention of the file the word: "FILE", but then I thought that I will have location problem (my explorer will not seems nice in japaneese computer for example...).
But I see that MFC sample do the same !!!
How this can be ?
