i am trying to find out what kind of control is used for the properties window in vb6. i am looking for the same functionality. i don't think it's a listview, but it looks like a listview.. i.e. clicking caption allows me to edit the caption cell, font brings up a button, and visible a drop down list of choices. this may be a combination of controls, but as long as i have an idea of what's involved, i can go from there..
