Commented:
#define defaultRGBBkGnd RGB(192,192,192)
pDC->FrameRect(r,&CBrush(RGB(128,128,128)));

These are both gray... Try to change one of them to RGB( 0, 0, 255 ); I don't understand wich part you want to change
no...I would like to change the bar with your MouseMove witch is in grey see No.3 in my hardcopy to blue
Hm - I fear that's really difficult - the problem is that a list control draws the selection marker in blue only when it is the active control and has the input focus.

Unfortunateley it seems that this never is the case - the focus seems to be set to the edit control, the list control captures mouse messages but seems not to become activated.

I don't know if it's possible to change the existing functionality in a way that the list control is active/has focus and works the same way as it does now.

Another possibilty would be to create your own list control with owner-draw functionality - in this case you'd have to draw the content of the list control yourself so you could control how the things are drawn - even not quite easy but could be possible.

Unfortunateley I tried this and didn't get it working - and just now I don't have the time to figure out why not, sorry ...

Maybe I can try the next days again ...

Hi Zoppo,
okay...I understand....I thought I have just to change some code in MultiColumnComboBox
to get it done.
I can live with the grey bar....thanks for trying.
Have a great evening.
Best regards,
Thomas
