Hi can some one please post an example how to create and use multicolumn listbox...

CListBox * listBox = new CListBox();
listBox->Create(LBS_MULTICOLUMN | LBS_HASSTRINGS | WS_VISIBLE | WS_BORDER, CRect(20, 20, 170, 170), this, 65536);

You can't take full control about multiple columns in a listbox, it is virtually a single column that is wrapped, so you can't ensure to put many columns for a same row aligned. Better you can use a CListCtrl instead, in "report" mode. Look at:

There are some examples at, but a simple on could be:

CListCtrl *listCtrl = new CListCtrl();
listCtrl->Create(WS_VISIBLE|WS_BORDER|LVS_REPORT, CRect(20, 20, 170, 170), this, 65536);
listCtrl->InsertColumn(0, "1st", 35);
listCtrl->InsertColumn(1, "2nd", 35);
listCtrl->InsertColumn(2, "3rd", 35);

listCtrl->InsertItem(0, "");
