ListView

I want to use list control and dynamically add items.
I want if I have five colums to divide equally the control display area with the five columns with no horizontal scroll bar showing or no extra space left. How should I do that. Give me an exmample code for three items. Just the columns is OK.
Thanks

Here ya go!

void CD6Dlg::OnButton1()
{
    CRect rc;
    m_clcList.GetWindowRect( &rc );

    int nListWidth= rc.Width();

    // --- if you expect a vertical scrollbar...
    int nScrollBarWide= GetSystemMetrics( SM_CXVSCROLL );
    nListWidth -= nScrollBarWide;
   
    int nClmWide = nListWidth/CNUM_ClmCnt;
    int nLastClmWide= nClmWide;
    while ( nLastClmWide + (nClmWide * (CNUM_ClmCnt-1)) < nListWidth-1 ) {
        nLastClmWide++;
    }
    nClmWide     -= 1;  // divider width
    nLastClmWide -= 1;
   
    m_clcList.InsertColumn(     0, "Clm A", LVCFMT_LEFT, nClmWide );
    m_clcList.InsertColumn(     1, "Clm B", LVCFMT_LEFT, nClmWide );
    m_clcList.InsertColumn(     2, "Clm C", LVCFMT_LEFT, nClmWide );
    m_clcList.InsertColumn(     3, "Clm D", LVCFMT_LEFT, nClmWide );
    m_clcList.InsertColumn(     4, "Clm E", LVCFMT_LEFT, nLastClmWide );

    m_clcList.InsertItem(  0,    "Item A0" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 0, 1, "Item B0" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 0, 2, "Item C0" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 0, 3, "Item D0" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 0, 4, "Item E0" );

    m_clcList.InsertItem(  1,    "Item A1" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 1, 1, "Item B1" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 1, 2, "Item C1" );

    m_clcList.InsertItem(  2,    "Item A2" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 2, 1, "Item B2" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 2, 2, "Item C2" );

    m_clcList.InsertItem(  3,    "Item A3" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 3, 1, "Item B3" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 3, 2, "Item C3" );

    m_clcList.InsertItem(  4,    "Item A4" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 4, 1, "Item B4" );
    m_clcList.SetItemText( 4, 2, "Item C4" );
}


The code just calculates the width of the control, then sets the column widths accordingly.  As a bonus, I added some code to show you how to populate the list
