Hello every one, I want to set a bmp file as the CListView control's(not CListCtrl)  background, I found CListView class has a class member function named SetBkImage, I can set an image file as listview's background by invoking it, but I can not set the listview's background mode to transparent. So, how can I set CListView's background ?

Can you explain with more details what do you try to do? Background image or transparent background mode? How should it look?

I want to set the listview's background with a bmp file or a jpg file, and when I insert an item, it can not override the background, but the CListView::SetBkItem can not do it, how can I do it ?
