How can you retrieve the number of columns in a listview control by using the sendmessage api? I just can't find the message anywhere.


sendmessage (listhwnd, LVM_SOMETHING, lparam, wparam

I found the answer,

I have to get a handle to the header control, and then use the hdr_getitemcount message to retrieve the number of columns.
