i'd like to create dynamically static controls on a dialog.
each control need to be positioned next to a list item, as follows"
        |List Header1|List Header2|
        ---------------------------
static1 |item1       |            |
static2 |item2       |            |
static3 |item3       |            |
.
.
.
the problem is that i can't get to position them i the right place.
here's my code:

     CRect r;
     CLed* pLed; //CStatic derive class
//m_listCtrlActions - my list control
//m_arrLeds - CArray<CLed*, CLed*>

     for(int i=0; i<m_listCtrlActions.GetItemCount(); i++){
          m_listCtrlActions.GetItemRect(i, r, LVIR_BOUNDS);

          m_arrLeds.Add(pLed = new CLed());
          pLed->Create("", WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|SS_CENTER|WS_BORDER,
               CRect(r.left,r.Height()+r.top, r.left+30, r.Height()+r.top+15), this);
     }

what i'm doing wrong?

Try the following:


     for (i=0 ; i<m_listCtrlActions.GetItemCount() ; ++i)
     {
          CRect r;
          m_listCtrlActions.GetItemRect(i, r, LVIR_BOUNDS);
          m_listCtrlActions.ClientToScreen(r);
          ScreenToClient(r);
                m_arrLeds.Add(pLed = new CLed());
          pLed->Create("lala", WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|SS_CENTER|WS_BORDER,
            CRect(r.left-r.Width(),r.top, r.left-30, r.Height()+r.top), this);
     }


The rect you get from CListCtrl::GetItemRect is relative to the top left corner of the list control.

it doesn't look good, it display a half black rectangle for some reason.
i want the controls to be the same height as the item in the list while its width should be 50.

did u run it?
