I'm trying to set tabs in a list box. The box works - my fields are being displayed in the box, but the tab setting apears to have no effect. I have tried settings from 1 to 200 and nothing happens. Ideas? Thanks.

ComplMessage.Format("%d %s %s %.4f %.4f %.4f %d",
Subs[i].ComboLine,
Subs[i].ContractName,
Subs[i].ContractDate,
Subs[i].Last,
Subs[i].Bid,
Subs[i].Offer,
Subs[i].Volume);

int tabber = 10; <----I have varied this from 1 to 200 and nothing happens
int tabs[7];
tabs[0] = tabber;
tabs[1] = tabber;
tabs[2] = tabber;
tabs[3] = tabber;
tabs[4] = tabber;
tabs[5] = tabber;
tabs[6] = tabber;
pListBox->SetTabStops(7, tabs); <---- this doesn't work
pListBox->AddString(ComplMessage); <----this works

Your listbox must have   LBS_USETABSTOPS in order to use CListBox::SetTabStops().. you may mention this style while creating listbox or with ModifyStyle()..

e.g.

pListBox->ModifyStyle(0, LBS_USETABSTOPS, 0);  // Add style LBS_USETABSTOPS

pListBox->SetTabStops(7, tabs);
pListBox->AddString(ComplMessage);
