I m using a ListControl with Report Mode in my dialog box, But In some cases, some of the text is longer that the specified width of the column. I just want that the text should be displayed when i put the cursor on the that item-text.
I have seen in the MSDN that there is an extended style LVS_EX_LABELTIP. But when i tried with that style in my code, It gave an undefined error. Is It the Ex-Style for the same?
In MSDN, version 5.80 was also mentioned with that style.How can i use that feature.
I m using Visual studio 6.0. Is there any other way to do the same ?

To use comctl32.dll version 5.80 or higher IE 5.0 or higher has to be installed. And from MSDN

Project Versions

To ensure that your application is compatible with different targeted versions of Comctl32.dll and Shell32.dll, a version macro was added to the header files. This macro is used to define, exclude, or redefine certain definitions for different versions of the DLL. The macro name is _WIN32_IE, and you are responsible for defining the macro as a hexadecimal number. This version number defines the target version of the application that is using the DLL. The following table shows the available version numbers and the effect each has on your application.
Version      Description
0x0200      The application is compatible with Comctl32.dll and Shell32.dll version 4.00 and later. The application cannot implement features that were added after version 4.00 of Comctl32.dll.
0x0300      The application is compatible with Comctl32.dll and Shell32.dll version 4.70 and later. The application cannot implement features that were added after version 4.70 of Comctl32.dll.
0x0400      The application is compatible with Comctl32.dll and Shell32.dll version 4.71 and later. The application cannot implement features that were added after version 4.71 of Comctl32.dll.
0x0401      The application is compatible with Comctl32.dll and Shell32.dll version 4.72 and later. The application cannot implement features that were added after version 4.72 of Comctl32.dll.
0x0500      The application is compatible with Comctl32.dll version 5.80 and later, and Shell32.dll and Shlwapi.dll version 5.0 and later. The application cannot implement features that were added after version 5.80 of Comctl32.dll, or version 5.0 of Shell32.dll and Shlwapi.dll.
0x0501      The application is compatible with Comctl32.dll version 5.81 and later, and Shell32.dll and Shlwapi.dll version 5.0 and later. The application cannot implement features that were added after version 5.81 of Comctl32.dll, or version 5.0 of Shell32.dll and Shlwapi.dll.
0x0600      The application is compatible with Comctl32.dll version 6.0 and later, and Shell32.dll and Shlwapi.dll version 6.0 and later. The application cannot implement features that were added after version 6.0 of Comctl32.dll, or version 6.0 of Shell32.dll and Shlwapi.dll.

If you do not define this macro in your project, it is automatically defined as 0x0500. To define a different value, you can add the following to the compiler directives in your make file; substitute the desired version number for 0x0400.

/D _WIN32_IE=0x0400
[/quote]
you have to define _WIN32_IE = 0x0500. This was not standard when VS6.0 shipped and so you have to define it manually. In VS6 standard is
#define _WIN32_IE 0x0400
in commctrl.h
Not sure you need additional files or a new version of the SDK to change this to a higher value.
