Subclassing the Horizontal scroll-bar of a CListCtrl

Hi,
I need to replace the horizontal scroll-bar of a CListCtrl in a horizontal scroll bar of my own (I need a different behaviour from the normal).
I tried to place a CControlBar control exactly in the position of the default control-bar but it does not work because every time the default control-bar pops up, it pop in front of my control-bar.
I think that what I need to do is somehow to block the setting of WS_HSCROLL style (which is set every time that the control can scroll and disappear whenever scrolling can not be done).
Can someone tell me how can I block the poping of the default Horizontal scroll-bar ?

Thanks,
Yoav.

Maybe CWnd::EnableScrollBarCtrl(SB_HORZ, FALSE) can help you ?

If you can catch the message that cause the scrollbar to be created, maybe you can than cal GetScrollBar and destroy it ?

You must subclass your window(CListCtrl).
Try to read at www.codeproject.com great article from Chris Maunder "Create your own controls - the art of subclassing".
http://www.codeproject.com/miscctrl/subclassdemo.asp
IMHO this is a right way.
I don't include any code, because i don't subclass any CListCtrl in my projects, but in given article Chris subclass a button and explain in detail whole process.
Hope this help you !

Stas.

This answer is too general. I know what subclassing is...

I am wondering....

If you need different from default behaivour for horizontal scrool bar why can't you handle WM_HSCROLL the way you want, without calling default implementation?


Or you need different apperance also, not just behaviour?

Of cause one way to do that would be to impelement owner draw list ctrl. There are some samples of it on codeguru.com.  

Since it is not exactly what you wanted let me see if I can come up with something else....

Problem here is that scroll bar in list view isn't scroll bar at all. :-(
It is just painted area inside the control that behave like scroll bar.
My guess would be that it comes from Win3.1 days when it was too expensive to create 2 extra controls.

So unless you go owner-draw route I don't think you can do what you want. :-(
