Hello fadyg

Try this ;-)

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


{$R *.DFM}

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

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

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

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.

Best Regards

sorry for being late on this one,

as you said "very raw".
I tried to check which messages needed to be trapped but could not. So trapping them all is the best way. Overkill but works

thanks !
