MFC activeX for C-sharp

Hello

I am making a Csharp app. I am really fed up with the list view .net provides. It doesn't let you owner draw the items. and if you over ride the OnPaint event your stuck drawing the whole ting from scratch. I was think of created an ActiveX control in MFC and use that in my C# forms. I want to create a ListView that has checkboxes, displays yellow when item is selected and has icons. I wonder if activeX would be a good solution for this.

What about mixed C++, What would you recoomend as a good solution?

This is possible, but this is a lot of work and you need to be very good in COM. I think it is better to use some existing pure .NET control and modify it if necessary. Take a look at this sample:
