MFC, C++: Associating a value with a report-style CListCtrl row, to resolve later database queries.

Hello,

I am writing an application, a database front-end, that makes heavy use of report-style CListCtrls . I would like to be able to associate a Primary key value (essentially, an integer) with a row of some of those CListCtrls, so that when the user requests more information on the record that relates to the row, I can retrieve the row's "hidden value", the primary key value,  without displaying it, which is what I've been doing up until now. This is no longer appropriate.

So, how could I associated a "hidden value" with a row? It seems pretty likely that such a facility exists, for this very reason,
Thanks,
Sternocera

You can use CListCtrl::SetItemData():

// The pointer to my list view control.
extern CListCtrl* pmyListCtrl;

// Set the data of each item to be equal to its index.
for (int i=0;i < pmyListCtrl->GetItemCount();i++)
{
   pmyListCtrl->SetItemData(i, i);
}

Use GetItemData() to retrive the previously saved data:

// The pointer to my list view control.
extern CListCtrl* pmyListCtrl;

// If any item's data is equal to zero then reset it to -1.
for (int i=0;i < pmyListCtrl->GetItemCount();i++)
{
   if (pmyListCtrl->GetItemData(i) == 0)
   {
      pmyListCtrl->SetItemData(i, (DWORD) -1);
   }
}
