Thanks Andy, I should have know it was so simple, Arrg!
How would I go about setting the selection / not focus selection colours?

Much more complex  - owner draw or custom draw I think would be what you require.

That isn't so easy. You need to derive your own list control class from CListCtrl, switch ot owner draw in the resources, replace the class member by your class so that the DoDataExchange can make the subclassing,  supply the DrawItem member function, make all drawing yourself in that function

Thanks guys,
Ok thanks, I've done the more complex list control using the XListCtrl demo from the Code Project
http://www.codeproject.com/listctrl/xlistctrl.asp

I just thought there might be an easy way to change the colours used.
