Hi!

Check next code:

  CListBox   *pCLB;
  char       szB [256];

  pCLB = (CListBox *) GetDlgItem (IDC_TESTPLACE_LIST);  // get List-Box
  sprintf (szB, "%s", MessageText);
  if (szB[0] != 0) {
    pCLB->InsertString(-1, &szB[0]);
  }

Text is now displayed only in black color. How can I set different text colors in CListBox?

Thanks
Sasa

You have to use owner draw items.. Set ListBox's OWNERDRAW style and use CListBox::MeasureItem, CListBox::DrawItem pair to draw your own items.. So you can set any color or font in your list box..
