changing size of images in image list in CListCtrl

Hi there,

I have a CListCtrl which is using an image list to diplay icons with captions.  It works fine.  But when I change my screen resolution, the images stay the same dimensions in pixels, which means they get proportionally bigger or smaller to everything else.  How can I make the images scale up and down in size as well?

Thank you.

One way would be an owner draw list control (there is an MFC example showing that, I forget what it is called but it is demonstrating how to highlight a complete row - not just first column).
I don't know offhand if there is a specific function to correct what is happening with you.  (I asssume your smaller size is using smaller images eg 25x22 or whatever it resizes down to).

Have a differrent image list for each resolution and use the appropriate one for the users resolution.

Sorry, I'm not sure I explained properly, my problem is that the images always come out as being the size they are in their .gif files, if I change the size of the images in the list parts of them just get clipped.

Do you mean you want the row height to increase/decrease in the list control?

My list control resizes so that it always takes up the same proportion of the screen.  So do the row height and column width of it. (I mean they change in terms of pixels but stay constant to the eye).  

However, the scale of the objects in the image list does not change.  I have files eg sym1.gif which are 32 by 29 pixels.  When I put them in the image list  they act as though they are still 32 by 29 but if I specify a size for the images that is smaller in pixels (as I want to do for low resolutions)  parts of them get clipped rather than the whole thing resizing.  This happens when they get put in the image list and is not affected by the amount of room they have in the list control.

*sigh* I was really hoping to save myself the trouble of using an owner draw list control.  I can't find any examples of how to make an owner draw list control look like it's in icon view.  Do you know of any?

There is the MFC example that comes with VC.  It is called ROWLIST.  It may well be useful.

Yeah, I've done owner draw list controls before, they just aren't well suited to icon view lists.  However, custom draw seems to have some promise, I'm in the process of checking it out.
