CListCtrl drag image does not display first column, when its single column. How do we manage?

I have a CListCtrl with only one column. When I drag and capture using OnBegindrag, the create image creates image with a long line followed by the other columns. (CreateDragImage)
Now, I only have one column and I could see only the line image and not the content of the first column.

How do I make the shadow line smaller or display the shadow content of the first column?

as a dirty solution, you can make first column width to zero (not used), and fill columns starting with second one.

I tried this, but, the line length it draws is on fixed length. So, even if I have more columns, it hides the first visible few centimeters.
