Selectable text in a List Box control

I want to know how to make a regular list box control, except you can select text that is in the control.  I'm not using MFC, just regular win32.

// Create a list box
hWndList = CreateWindow("listbox",NULL, WS_CHILD|
WS_VISIBLE|LBS_STANDARD, 400,50,iWidth+10 ,iHeight+50, hWnd,
(HMENU)"", hInst, NULL);


with resource editor it would be straight forward, drag n drop. :)

If you mean the text in the list box needs to be selected character-wise like an edit box, that is very difficult to achive with a list box.  It would probably be easier to make a read-only multiline edit box and just respond to the sel change message to prevent the user from doing selections that you don't want.

Hope this helps.
